After guiding Manchester City to a stunning treble of title victories last season, Norwegian striking ace, Erling Haaland is emerging as a significant betting favorite to land a second golden boot in as many seasons in English football – following last season’s record-setting campaign.
Haaland, who scored a whopping 52 goals in 53 total appearance for the Citizens last season, managed to win the Premier League, F.A. Cup, and UEFA Champions League during his first campaign with the Pep Guardiola side – with City winning European honors for the first time in their history with a narrow 1-0 win over Inter Milan.
Scoring a record-setting 36 league goals last season, Haaland ran out a resounding golden booth winner come the end of the season in May – and has already scored six league goals in as many games this season.
And for good reason, the Norway international has opened as a massive betting favorite to win the golden boot this season, with a host of bookies taking wagers and bets on Premier League outright winner odds, as well as a host of individual prop bets – and even Colorado NFL betting odds furthermore.
Remaining with Liverpool despite a late-window pursuit from the Saudi Pro League, Egyptian wideman, Mohamed Salah, has emerged as the second favortire to win the golden boot this season as part of a fluid front three for Jurgen Klopp’s side.
Falling well short last season with 19 league goals, Salah has found the net twice this season for Liverpool in four league games, and is approaching the latter stages of a glimmering professional career on Merseyside – leaving him with an outsiders chance.
Expected to lead the line for Ange Postecoglu’s side this campaign following the leftfield departure of long-time talisman, Harry Kane to German champions, Bayern Munich, South Korean forward, Heung Min Son has the pressure of leading Tottenham up the table without their record-setting goalscorer.
Son, a former forward for German challenges, Bayer Leverkusen had a somewhat shy season by his standards last time around, netting just 10 times in the league for Spurs, however, has already found the net on three occasions in four matches for the London side.
Sitting with a huge outsiders chance, Dublin forward, Evan Ferguson, who lit up a hugely-talented Brighton & Hove Albion side last season, has certainly caught the eye of fans last season, scoring 6 times for Roberto de Zerbi’s side.
And already scoring a Premier League hattick this season, Ferguson, just 18-years-old, who has been slapped with a whopping £150,000,000 price tag, has scored four goals in four games – with the former Bohemians man making his Republic of Ireland debut last year to boot.
Of note, expected to himself lead the line in a faltering Manchester United side since his arrival from Italian giants, Atalanta, Danish forward, Rasmus Hojlund, who made a brief second half cameo against Arsenal in a 3-1 loss before the international break, has been priced well out there to even contend for a golden boot in his debut season in English football.
Assigned the number 11 shirt, Hojlund, who found the net nine tiems in Bergamo last season, is expected to make his first start for United this weekend at Old Trafford, leading out the side as they take on the above-mentioned, Brighton.
