The race for the Premier League is well and truly on.
Chelsea, Man City, Man United, Liverpool and Everton have all started strongly. Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s men currently top the table after four games but only by goal difference as three other teams also have 10 points on the board at this very early stage of the season.
Most players won’t admit it but individual accolades are just as important as winning as a team. That’s why each and every year several players battle it out to be named the Premier League’s Top Scorer.
Tottenham’s Harry Kane topped the goalscoring charts last season after bagging on 23 occasions. After just a few games it seems like the England international already has his work cut out if he hopes to retain the EPL Golden Boot.
Join us as we highlight some of the favourites to top the charts and hopefully pick this season’s big winner. If you looking for something that will bring a nice return before the end of the season be sure to check out the european casinos that accept uk players.
Romelu Lukaku 11/4
Chelsea fans rejoiced while the rest of the Premier League sighed when it was officially announced Romelu Lukaku was set to rejoin the London club where he made his name. The Belgian striker is currently the favourite to walk away with the EPL Golden Boot in May. Lukaku has started this season in prolific goalscoring form. The 29-year-old has bagged three times in three matches and is only kept off the top spot by West Ham’s Michail Anthonio who has scored four times but surely can’t keep this type of form up for the entire season.
Cristiano Ronaldo 11/4
CR7 followed the lead of Lukaku by returning to the English club that made him famous. Cristiano Ronaldo bossed Serie A last season scoring 29 goals in a pretty poor Juventus team. The 36-year-old may not have played in the Premier League for more than a decade, but he didn’t miss a beat when returning for his second Manchester United debut last weekend. Ronaldo bagged two goals in one game and established himself as a true contender for the Golden Boot.
Mohamed Salah 6/1
For some weird reason, the bookmakers have Mohamed Salah at massive odds of 6/1 to top the goal-scoring charts in the 2021/22 season. ‘The Egyptian King’ finished just one goal behind Harry Kane last season and has been consistently at the top of the charts since joining Liverpool in 2017. Salah has been in great form at the start of the season and bagged his 100th goal in English football this past weekend. He already has three Premier League goals this season and will surely be in the running for the Golden Boot come May. We’ll be putting our money on him to win the whole thing.
Harry Kane 10/1
Last season’s winner is at massive odds of 10/1. Harry Kane is proven to be one of the most prolific goal scorers in world football. The England captain wanted to leave Tottenham in the summer but has been forced to stay at the North London club for at least six more months. The 28-year-old is yet to score in three Premier League games, but don’t count him out. Kane is more than capable of catching his rivals in the coming months.
Who do you think will win the Premier League 2021/22 Golden Boot?
