Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang shortens to 6/1 to be top scorer after finding the net against Crystal Palace
We have ourselves an interesting Golden Boot race in the Premier League right now, with two players tied on seven goals at the top of the scoring chart and a further three men on six goals.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang failed to score in his first three matches although the Gabon forward has now plundered nine goals in as many games and seven of them have come in the Premier League.
Braces against Fulham and Leicester have seen the former Borussia Dortmund man tumble in the betting, with bet365 one of the bookmakers to chalk up 6/1 about him top scoring.
It is Sergio Aguero that remains marginal favourite to be Premier League top scorer, with BetVictor offering a best price 3/1 that the Manchester City man fills his boots this season.
The Argentine has six goals on the board already although three of those come against Huddersfield early in the season and there’s a nagging feeling that Aguero will continue to be used sparingly.
Harry Kane has five goals to date and he’s a 7/2 chance to win his third Golden Boot award, with the England forward having failed to find the net in his previous three matches.
Mohamed Salah claimed the top honour last season and was also voted PFA Player of the Year, with the Egyptian also on five goals and he’s trading at 5/1.
Eden Hazard has been forced to miss Chelsea’s previous two matches with a back injury, although the Belgian does have seven goals to his name and 8/1 doesn’t look a bad price accordingly.
Sadio Mane is on six for the season and he’s a 20/1 poke to finish ahead of his club teammate and everyone else this term.
