#3 Mohamed Salah - 9 goals

The Egyptian scored has scored nine straight Premier League penalties.

It has been a goals galore for the Egyptian since his move to Merseyside in 2017. Unlike the other players in this list, Salah was not the first-choice penalty taker for Liverpool, and it was James Milner who was on penalty duty for the side.  

In fact, Salah missed his first Premier League penalty against Huddersfield in 2018. The Egyptian, though, has not missed a penalty since. Salah has been devastating from the spot, scoring his next nine penalties. The Egyptian was on the mark yet again on the opening day of the season, scoring two penalties against Leeds in a 4-3 thriller at Anfield.


#2 Mark Noble - 10 goals

Amongst the active players, Noble leads the league in penalty scoring.

Noble is the leading penalty scorer in the Premier League at the moment. The midfielder has scored 34 out of the 38 penalties he has taken in his career.

The West Ham midfielder has gone without missing a single penalty for a long period. Mark Noble, who scored his first-ever Premier League penalty in 2007, has been flawless from the spot since West Ham's 1-0 win over Wolves in 2016.

The one-club man has scored in every calendar year since, an impressive ten goals from the spot and his last penalty came during the Hammers 4-1 loss against Leicester City in January.

Noble holds the second-best penalty conversion rate in the world, over the last 20 years, with a conversion rate of 90.5%.


#1 Luka Milivojevic - 12 goals

Milivojevic has been devastating in set pieces for the Eagles.

A walking penalty scorer would be the correct way to describe Milivojevich. The Serbian international has been clinical from the spot for the Eagles. Over the past four seasons, Milivojevich has taken 23 penalties in the Premier League and successfully converted 20 of them.

The Serbian became the first-choice penalty taker only when he joined Crystal Palace and has been a crucial part of the Eagles' impressive run under Roy Hodgson. Since missing his last spot-kick against Everton in October of 2018, the Serbian has since scored 12 straight penalties, with his most recent penalty coming against Arsenal last year.
