question nobody asked

who has scored in most games?

IN his time at Manchester United, Dimitar Berbatov's goalscoring record has been called into question and despite his position among the league's top marksmen this season, the number of games he has scored in is poor.

Berbatov's five goals against Blackburn and three against Liverpool have improved his tally, but the Bulgarian's brace yesterday still means he has scored in just six Premier League games.

Surprisingly, one of the men who has scored in most games is Everton's Tim Cahill, who notched his ninth of the season against Manchester City last Monday, with each of his goals scored in separate games. Newcastle's Andy Carroll is now level with him having scored in nine different games -- an impressive tally for a player who is in his first Premier League season.

After that, with those who have scored more than five goals is Carlos Tevez, who has struck in eight games including yesterday's goal against Carroll's Newcastle. Johan Elmander's nine have come in seven games while Samir Nasri, Darren Bent and Marouane Chamakh have brought up their tallies in six games.
