Premier League marksmen in the race for the Golden Boot

The race for the prestigious Golden Boot looks to be a forgone conclusion with Mo Salah continuing to hammer in the goal, but it is worth taking a look at the latest Premier League top scorer odds as we head to the business end of the season.

Mo Salah (Liverpool)

Salah has been one of the most consistent strikers in the Premier League for many years and has won the Golden Boot twice in 2017-18 and 2018-19, sharing the latter with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Sadio Mane.

The Egyptian scored 32 goals when landing this prize for the first time and in subsequent seasons has netted 22, 19 and 22 goals for Liverpool.

This season he has already scored 19 goals in 24 Premier League appearances, while the 1/10 favourite to win the Golden Boot has also bagged eight in the Champions League.

He looks well on course for his best-ever season in a Liverpool shirt and his nearest challenger could come from his own team.

Diogo Jota (Liverpool)

Second in the Premier League top scorer list behind teammate Salah, Jota has become a vital outlet for Jurgen Klopp as his Liverpool team challenge for silverware in multiple competitions this term.

The Portuguese forward has grabbed an impressive 12 goals in Liverpool’s title challenge, although his progress has slowed of late with only two Premier League goals in 2022.

He is 12/1 in the Premier League top scorer odds, but his chances of overtaking his teammate appear slim.

Cristiano Ronaldo (Manchester United)

Ronaldo is 36 years young and last claimed the Premier League Golden Boot in 2007-08, when he also won the European Golden Shoe with 31 goals for Manchester United.

The Portuguese marksman is still the main man and has combatted some initial hesitancy over his place in Ralf Rangnick’s plans to remain United’s biggest goal threat.

He has scored nine in 23 appearances in the top flight for the Red Devils, but has made more of an impact in the Champions League so far this season.

That leaves him plenty behind Salah and he is 22/1 in the Premier League top scorer odds.

Harry Kane (Tottenham)

The three-time Golden Boot winner was feeling the effects of a Euro 2020 hangover in the early part of the season when he scored just one goal in his first 13 Premier League games.

However, he has taken his tally to eight since Antonio Conte has arrived in N17 and the Italian appears to have found the key to returning Kane to the form that saw him fire home 23 goals last season.

Nevertheless, he will have to have an exceptional finish to the campaign to not only match last year’s figure, but also catch the market leaders and he is 33/1 in the Premier League top scorer odds.

Sadio Mane (Liverpool)

Mane, Salah and Aubameyang shared the title three years ago and the fact Mane has an equally potent strike partner helps create a little more space – and more chances.

He is currently third in the Premier League marksmen charts on 11 for the season, with Anfield housing the three most deadly attackers in the division

However, the 29-year-old is unlikely to catch teammate Salah and is 33/1 in our Premier League top scorer odds.

Best of the rest

Son Heung-Min (50/1) has made up somewhat for Kane’s under-par season with 10 goals, while Raheem Sterling (50/1) is Manchester City’s leading goalscorer and the only other man to hit double figures this term.

Injury has curtailed Jamie Vardy‘s (66/1) challenge and the evergreen Leicester front man is stuck on nine for the campaign, while Michail Antonio (100/1) might need to have his best-ever season for West Ham to make the top four, but is a huge outsider in our Premier League top scorer odds.
