Favourites to Win Premier League Golden Boot
The new Premier League season kicks-off this week at Old Trafford, with Man Utd v Leicester representing the first opportunity for players to get their names on the scoreboard.
While bookmakers have decided their favourites for Premier League's golden boot, there may just be a player that surprises everyone and scores a ton of goals like Salah did last year.
The Liverpool player may have just won the title in 2017-18, but after a stellar performance in Russia, Harry Kane who came second last season, is currently the bookmakers favourite.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will also be looking to make his mark after joining the Premier League mid-season, with both Romelu Lukaku and Sergio Aguero also strong contenders.
Bookmakers decided long ago who their favourites are to be crowned Premier League Sop Scorer for 2018-19, and while there aren’t too many new faces, there's plenty of competition.
In the lead up to the first game, we've taken a look at the top 6 players that British Bookmakers deem as favourites to be the Premier League's top goalscorer at the end of the season.
Harry Kane's the golden boy of English football, and has previously been the Premier League’s top goalscorer before, is the bookmakers favourite to take the title this season.
The Spurs striker finished last seasons Premier League in second place, just 2 goals behind the top scorer Mo Salah, and will be looking to go one better this season.
Kane is one of the best strikers in the Premier League, and after a fantastic performance in Russia that saw him score 6 goals, it’s no wonder he’s expected to be up there this time round.
Kane has continually increased his goal tally each season, and will be looking to increase the 30 Premier league goals, and 41 goals across all competitions that he netted for Spurs in 2017-18.
In his first season at Liverpool, Mohamed Salah took out the coveted Top Goalscorer title, and is yet again one of the top contenders to score the most goals this season.
Salah netted an incredible 32 goals from his 36 Premier League appearances for Liverpool last season, and a total of 44 goals across all competitions.
Salah represented Egypt in the 2018 World Cup, and managed to score 2 goals in 2 matches for his national team but he was never in the running to win the Golden Boot.
There's some tough competition for his trophy this season, but Salah is without a doubt one of the front-runners and could easily take the title for a second consecutive season if on form.
Aubameyang joined Arsenal from Borussia Dortmund in January, and had quite an impressive start to his Arsenal career, scoring 10 goals in the 13 appearances following the move.
Aubameyang will be determined todo well in his first full season, and given his reputation as a natural goalscorer, its easy to see why bookmakers offer him as one of the top 6 contenders.
Having already scored 21 goals for Borussia Dortmund before his move last season, and adding another 10 at Arsenal, Aubameyang’s total was actually less than the previous season.
Now that he’s settled at Arsenal though, we should see great things from this talented striker.
Aguero is without a doubt, one of the Premier League's top strikers and sure knows how to put the ball in the back of the net having scored over 200 goals for Man City.
Last season saw Aguero take 3rd place in the race be top goalscorer, with an average of a goal scored every 94 minutes, which was the second best in the Premier League.
Not only did he score 21 goals in 25 Premier League appearances last season, but the Argentinian scored a total of 30 across all competitions for last seasons winners.
Aguero made his mark in Russia, scoring 2 goals for Argentina and has already bagged 2 goals this season in the Community Shield that saw Man City beat Chelsea.
Following his move from Everton to Man Utd at the start of the last season, Romelu Lukaku ended his first season as the Premier League's 6th top goalscorer.
Lukaku may be the 10th-most expensive striker, however the Man Utd forward made his mark, scoring 16 Premier League goals last season and 27 in total for his new club.
As Belgium’s all-time record goalscorer, Lukaku has scored 40 goals for his country, and was also one of the top scorers in the 2018 World Cup, netting 4 goals for Belgium in Russia.
The other player that bookmakers offer as one of the top 6 contenders for the 2018-19 Premier League top goalscorer title is Man City forward Gabriel Jesus.
He finished in the top 10 scorers last season and although Jesus had a disappointing World Cup for Brazil with 5 goalless appearances, Pep Guardiola is confident that he do well this season.
Despite being injured for a substantial number of games, Jesus managed to score 13 Premier League goals last season and is definitely one to watch in 2018-19.
