Just how much is Sam Kerr dominating in the NWSL this season? We had a quick gander at the best journalistic resource out there, Twitter, to help find the answers.
After nabbing another brace in Chicago Red Stars' 3-0 thumping of Clare Pokinghorne's former club, Houston Dash, Kerr's brought her season tally up to a handy 15 goals. In 17 games.
Seems like the better match up against Sam Kerr would be a soccer player who can run as fast as Sam Kerr https://t.co/6Ad1POnwM4— Box-to-box MF’er ⚽️↙️↙️↙️ (@footyisfree) September 8, 2019
That puts her on course to become the most prolific goal scorer in any women's competition this season, currently gunning alongside Carli Lloyd's record of a goal every 57 minutes for the US national team.
She also leads the league in offsides, tribute to just how much Chicago Red Stars rely on her pace as an attacking weapon.
Fans on Twitter were getting right behind the Aussie, pointing out it's not just the world's best she's competing with, but entire NWSL teams. Kerr has only one goal less than her previous club, Sky Blue's entire goal tally this season.
Meanwhile, she has three less than Houston and only four less than fifth-placed Reign FC.

They both play so boring. Stop passing around the back. Just kick people over in midfield and kick it to Sam Kerr. That’s REAL football— Taryn Heddo (@theddo96) September 8, 2019
