The Premier League’s first two or three games of the season have already included some outstanding goals, which indicates that the competition for the Golden Boot has already started.
The race to win the renowned honor is a season-long marathon, not a dash.
Throughout a season, several things can go wrong, like getting injured too soon or losing fit.
Additionally, some of them are assigned to take penalties for their respective clubs, which gives them a better chance to add a few quick goals to their totals.
Let’s examine the top five players receiving the most betting support in the Premier League Golden Boot race this year.
- ERLING HAALAND (MAN CITY))
A 44% chance exists that the new Manchester City player would win the Premier League Golden Boot outright. He has emerged as the team’s clear favorite to do so.
The Norwegian seems to draw luck wherever he goes, so it seems fitting.
He also became City’s new penalty taker on his debut, which helped him score two goals and move up to third-highest goal scorer in the Premier League’s all-time scoring list.
- HARRY KANE (TOTTENHAM)
Kane is still the second favorite with an overall chance of 18% to win the golden boot for the fourth time, even though the fact that he was unable to successfully defend his championship the previous season.
After making several important acquisitions, Tottenham now seems to be a much stronger team than in the past.
- DARWIN NUNEZ (LIVERPOOL)
7% of bookmakers believe Nunez can easily defeat his rivals while being coached by Jürgen Klopp.
In his debut league game, Nunez already has a goal to his credit. With a system as high-octane as Liverpool’s to fit his nature, he will only get more adept at what he does. His instincts for poaching are highly dangerous.
- GABRIEL JESUS (ARSENAL)
The fourth-ranked player overall and the newest member of the Arsenal team, GABRIEL JESUS, is presently projected to take home the Golden Boot this year.
10% of the faithful are sure Gabriel Jesus is not yet at his fullest.
- MOHAMED SALAH (LIVERPOOL)
With a 13% outright probability, the participant who tied for first place the year before is currently the third-most-popular candidate to win the golden boot.
Salah’s prospects benefit from the fact that he takes the majority of the Reds’ penalties.
