The season gets underway in just a few days, and here we are again, asking ourselves the key questions heading into another season. Who is more equipped to win the 2022/2 EPL Golden boot? Let’s evaluate the top most prolific strikers in the English Premier League and their odds of winning the coveted price this season.

The EPL Golden Boot

Top Picks For The 2022/23 EPL Golden Boot.

Erling Haaland

He is understandably the odds-on favourite to win the EPL Golden boot. The Norwegian is a proven goalscorer who has gathered enough experience at 22, to lead a frontline like City’s.

Haaland needs no introduction to most football fans. The former BVB striker scored 22 league goals despite being out injured for some part of last season. He scored a league goal every 87 minutes in the Bundesliga last term. The odds of Haaland winning the golden boot are set around (7/2 (4.5)) With the greater amount of creativity he will have playing for Pep Guardiola’s side, Haaland is expected to get 20+ goals this season, bar any serious injury lay-off.

Mohamed Salah

With Sadio Mane gone, Liverpool will depend more on the Egyptian forward to come up with the goals again. 

Salah fell just short of his expected goals (xg) by just 0.73 last season, despite missing 17 big chances. He averaged a goal every 120 minutes.

Sharing the award last season with Heung Min Son, Salah is backed at 9/2 (5.5) to finish the season at the top of the goalscorer’s chart once more.

Harry Kane

Since 2014, Kane has consistently been Tottenham’s highest goal scorer until last season. Heung Min son led the North London side to a top-4 finish. At 6.1 (7.0), odds aren’t against Kane snatching up his fourth EPL Golden boot award, come May 2023.

Harry Kane averaged a goal every 190 minutes in the Premier League last season, while he missed 18 big chances. He also fell short of his (xg) by 2.73.

Cristiano Ronaldo

CR7 could still leave Manchester United this summer, however, wherever he ends up he will still be among the discussion for the Golden boot award. CR7 is the greatest goalscorer in football, and despite his age, he is still backed at 10/1 (11.0) to improve on his 18 goals tally from last season.

Will Cristiano Ronaldo stay at Manchester United to win 2022/23 EPL Golden Boot

Ronaldo averaged a goal every 136 minutes in the Premier League last season while missing 13 big chances.

2022/23

Heung Min Son

After winning the Golden Boot last year, Son will want more. He should be a mainstay in Conte’s team this season alongside Kane, despite the signing of Richarlison.
