The race for the 2017 – 18 Premier League Golden Boot is well and truly on, with Harry Kane leading the way, closely followed by Mohamed Salah and Sergio Aguero. Kane was the clear winner of last season’s crown, bagging 29 goals in 30 appearances for Tottenham, while Romelu Lukaku followed with 25 in 37 games for Everton.
With Chelsea’s forward, Alvaro Morata and Liverpool winger Salah joining the league of champions, Kane surged into the lead in the final week of 2017 after bagging back-to-back hat-tricks against Burnley and Southampton and he has remained there ever since.
Salah is not too far behind the Spurs star and the Egypt international is showing little sign of slowing down with 22 strikes to his name.
Manchester City’s Argentine star Aguero is on 21 goals after he bagged four in the 5-1 demolition of Leicester, while his team-mate Raheem Sterling has scored 15 times.
Lukaku has taken his haul for United to 12, while Roberto Firmino, Morata, Wayne Rooney and Jamie Vardy are the only other players to have reached double figures.
Who deserves the golden boot at the end of the season?
