The new Premier League season is now underway, and alongside the race for the league title, the race for the Golden Boot has also begun. 

So, here are the top ten players most likely to win the top scorer award in England this season. 

10. Gabriel Jesus (Manchester City) 


Following the departure of Sergio Aguero, Jesus is the only formal striker at the club. As a result, he is being fancied to go ahead and challenge for the Golden Boot award this year. 

9. Danny Ings (Aston Villa) 

Ings came close to winning the Golden Boot for Southampton in the past seasons and has now switched his allegiance to Villa Park. With an energetic young team behind him, he could find himself with a lot of chances to convert in 21/22. 

8. Jamie Vardy (Leicester City) 


Vardy is the oldest player ever to win the Premier League Golden Boot, and this only goes to show the kind of quality the player possesses. Despite the presence of Patson Daka and Khelechi Iheanacho at the club, the Englishman is surely a favourite to try and win the award again. 

7. Son Heung-min (Tottenham Hotspur)

Son has found himself in great form over the last year and will be hoping to extend his performances to this year under Nuno Espirito Santo. Harry Kane continuing his stay at Spurs will also turn out well for him due to their excellent chemistry together. 

6. Michail Antonio (West Ham United) 

Antonio is the surprise candidate to win the award this year since he currently tops the scoring charts after 3 games played. The West Ham forward could also enjoy a major breakout season in 21/22 if he stays consistent. 

5. Dominic Calvert-Lewin (Everton) 

The Everton number 9 has already gotten off the mark under Rafa Benitez and has looked as threatening as ever in the box. His dominance in the air will be a key weapon for the England forward in the race for the top scorer award. 

4. Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur) 


Kane won the Golden Boot last year, and it is rather surprising to see him at 4th. However, the blocked move in the summer will surely hinder his mentality to a minimal level, which could result in the England captain being less likely to retain the title. 

3. Cristiano Ronaldo (Manchester United) 

The Portuguese sensation returned to Old Trafford in the final days of the transfer window, and despite being 36, is a strong candidate for the Golden Boot. He won the award in Serie A last season, and it would be foolish to not consider the best finisher in the world a favourite this year. 

2. Mohamed Salah (Liverpool) 

Salah has been the best part about Liverpool’s attack for over a season now. The Egyptian has already won the award twice in the past, and his consistency under Jürgen Klopp puts him in the perfect position to achieve the personal milestone once again.

1. Romelu Lukaku (Chelsea)

Lukaku made his return to Chelsea for €115 million this summer and has scored his first goal for the Blues already. Given the plethora of chances, the Blues create every game, Lukaku’s dominance in the box puts him at the top of the potential candidates to win the Golden Boot in 21/22.
