A lot of players in the Premier League struggle to develop their aerial ability but it is an important attribute to survive in this league.

The Premier League may be fast paced and full of action but we cannot deny the fact how important it is for players to have at least decent aerial ability. From central defenders looking to repel long balls or dangerous cross to your classical number 9s who are looking to head the ball towards goal or just lay it down for their teammate, this is an ability that has become very crucial.

You might call it old-school but fact of the matter is that Premier League has always seen players with great aerial abilities become household names. Remember how Cristiano Ronaldo became one of the greatest players to play in the league and had quite frightening aerial abilities?

In a bid to really showcase why aerial ability is important, we’ve decided to put together a list of players who have won the most number of headers in the Premier League this season.
