Premier League top goal scorers 2022-2023

The Premier League returns with Manchester City star Erling Haaland firmly entrenched at the top of the scoring table with his 18 goals in just 13 games, as he continues his chase of league records.Premier League top goal scorers 2022-2023

Haaland is well on his way to breaking the Premier League record, needing 17 goals in the 24 matches remaining to eclipse the mark of 34 goals scored in a single season set by Andy Cole and Alan Shearer.

Tottenham’s Harry Kane (13 goals) is the closest among the pursuers, just ahead of Ivan Toney (11 goals). Both players scored as Brentford and Spurs drew 2-2 on December 26.

Last season’s Golden Boot joint-winner Mohamed Salah started the season slowly but started to find his stride before the World Cup break, and he was on target again as Liverpool beat Aston Villa following the restart. Leandro Trossard (Brighton and Hove Albion) and Miguel Almiron (Newcastle United) were similarly on hot streaks prior to the break and the Magpies star struck again in the routine win at Leicester City.

As was the case throughout last season, The Sporting News will update the top scorers’ table below, 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 did the sportsbooks think was the frontrunner for the top scorer title in England at the start of the season? It was Haaland ahead of everyone else.

    Previous winners Salah and Kane were 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, clocked 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.
