Quick Bit: Manchester City’s Erling Haaland, Arsenal’s Gabriel Jesus, and Liverpool’s Darwin Nunez are among the favorites to challenge last season’s Premier League top scorers, Son Heung-min and Mohamed Salah, for the 2022/23 Golden Boot.

Full Story:

The honor of the first goal of the 2022/23 Premier League season fell to Arsenal forward Gabriel Martinelli, who opened the scoring in his team’s 2-0 opening day win over Crystal Palace. The other goal came on a Crystal Palace own goal.

It’s only a matter of time before Martinelli has more company at the top of the table. Last season’s Golden Boot winners, Son Heung-min and Mohamed Salah, both found the net on the opening weekend of the 2021/22 campaign and they finished as joint top scorers on 23 goals. They’re expected to contend for the crown once again.

Scoring early and often is the task awaiting the likes of Erling Haaland (Manchester City) and Darwin Nunez (Liverpool), who captured all the buzz and preseason hype. Haaland and Nunez are set to make their Premier League debut.

England top scorer Harry Kane will also have his eyes set on a remarkable fourth Golden Boot award in the last eight seasons, while Three Lions teammate Raheem Sterling would seem to be Chelsea’s best scoring option and a potential Golden Boot threat after seven campaigns spent at Man City.

As was the case last season, Sporting News will update the top scorer table with assists and minutes played serving as the first and second tiebreakers as per major European tournaments run by UEFA.

Premier League odds to win Golden Boot

Who do the sportsbooks think is the frontrunner for the top scorer title in England? It’s Haaland ahead of everyone else.

Previous winners Salah and Kane, are considered to be in with a good shot, both ahead of their other star teammates Nunez (Liverpool) and Son (Tottenham).

Cristiano Ronaldo, who is still on the books at Man United, but whose future at the club seems tenuous, clocks in with the seventh best odds to be the scoring king in England.

The biggest snubs by the betting market might be Diogo Jota (40/1) and West Ham newcomer Gianluca Scamacca (40/1).

Premier League Golden Boot table 2021/22

It came down to the final day of the 2021/22 season between Tottenham’s Son Heung-min and Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah. Son’s two goals at Norwich City on the final day allowed him to momentarily move ahead of Salah in the scoring table. But the Liverpool star came off the bench and netted late to catch Son, as the two stars shared the Golden Boot on 23 goals.

Cristiano Ronaldo (18 goals) was charging hard down the final stretch, but he ultimately came up short. Salah’s Liverpool’s teammates, Sadio Mane (16 goals) and Diogo Jota (15 goals), finished even further behind. And Manchester City had eight players with seven or more goals on the list. Harry Kane and Jamie Vardy, who were the previous two Golden Boot winners, were also top 10 finishers.
