Peter Shalulile scored for Sundowns in their 2-1 win over Chippa United yesterday, his ninth goal in the league and 15th in all competition this season. Below are five stats on one of the best players we have seen this campaign.
33 – Shalulile has scored 33 top-flight goals since his first season at Highlands Park. Only Themba Zwane and Knox Mutizwa (both 38) have scored more in that time.
When you consider that Shalulile spent a full season outside the top-flight, that stat is even more impressive.
86 – Shalulile’s 33 goals have come from 86 appearances, while both Mutizwa (117 appearances) and Themba Zwane (122) appeared in more league games in that period.
It was actually his first goal against Chippa, coming in his seventh match against them, which must have come as a relief.
7 – The seven matches played against Chippa is the longest it has taken Shalulile to score against a single top-flight opponent.
However, it also adds another scalp to the collection of top-flight teams he has scored against in his club career.
17 – Shalulile has scored against 17 different teams in the league since his previous club, Highlands Park, came into the top-flight.
Only against Ajax Cape Town, Platinum Stars has he played and failed to find the net, but even then he only faced these teams once.
1 – TTM are the only side that Shalulile has played more than 90 minutes against in the league without scoring.
