With the World Cup 2018 now finally over, attentions now turn to the domestic season and
more importantly the Premier League.
The English top flight is by far and away the most exciting division in world football and one of the most interesting battles is always between those battling for the golden boot. Liverpool’s Mo Salah won it in 2017/18 with 32 goals, 2 ahead of Spurs striker Harry Kane, but who will be in the running this season?
Mo Salah took the Premier League, and potentially the world, by storm last season with
the amount of goals he scored. He managed to hit 32 in 36 Premier League games last
term and will certainly be looking to impress again this time round.
Liverpool have strengthened too, making them a much more solid outfit, and this will only benefit the 26-year-old Egyptian attacker.
Kane, 24, has been amongst the goals consistently for the last four seasons now which
proves he’s no flash in the pan. If it wasn’t for Mo Salah enjoying a remarkable campaign
last term, Kane would have run away with the golden boot.
The Spurs striker has had a great World Cup with England, winning the golden boot , and with Spurs expected to go well in their new home, Kane should be up there in the scoring charts once again.

Question marks potentially remain in regard to Aguero’s future at Manchester City, but
there’s no questioning his goalscoring ability.
The 30-year-old Argentinian hit 21 goals in 25 games in the Premier League last season, showing just how deadly he is in front of goal, and he’ll be looking to once again prove his worth to manager Pep Guardiola.
He could be slowly being phased out of the side with Gabriel Jesus getting more and more
time on the pitch, but for now Aguero is City’s main goal threat.
Lukaku, 25, moved to Old Trafford last summer and immediately the responsibility for
scoring goals fell to him. He managed to weigh in with 16 goals in 34 games and the
Belgian striker will certainly be hoping to improve on that this term.
He’s enjoyed a great World Cup campaign with Belgium and finished as one of the top scorers, so if he can improve on his consistency in front of goal he should be in the running for the golden boot this term. United have bolstered their ranks once again and this should provide Lukaku
with even more ammo.
A new era is beginning at Arsenal under Unai Emery and Aubameyang is set to play a big
part in this. The 29-year-old striker joined The Gunners in the winter window and scored
10 goals in 13 games.
He’s already hit a hat trick in preseason and the pace merchant will be spearheading the Arsenal attack this season. With Emery having recruited 5 new players already, this should be a team the Gabonese striker thrives in, and he could be a good outside bet for the golden boot.
