Premier League golden boot race: Odds and tips 2021/22

Harry Kane is the three-time Golden Boot winner

The race for the Premier League golden boot is one of the hottest events of the year, separating the good players from the greats.

Harry Kane endured a stellar campaign last season to lift him for a third time – only Thierry Henry has won him more times – but he faces a tough task if he is to get past some of his rivals after a slow start to the season.

Here 101 Great Goals looks at the odds and tips for the 2021/22 Premier League golden boot, of which players are the favorites to lift the coveted prize and who could be close.

Golden Boot Favorites

Mo Salah he is enjoying another incredible season at the helm, scoring 20 goals in 28 league games. The winger averages 0.77 goals per 90 minutes and currently leads the competition with 6 goals. Liverpool picked up another big win over the weekend by defeating Watford 2-0. Salah is, unsurprisingly, the clear favorite to win the award at 1/20.

Diogo Jota he is the second top scorer along with Son. The Portuguese striker has scored 14 goals this season. However, he now faces some serious competition for his place from Luis Diaz, with the Reds’ newest signing making an instant impact at Anfield. But at 33/1 and just six goals behind Salah, he is one of the players expected to be up there at the end of the season.

Heung-min son He has once again shown that he is a key piece for Tottenham. The striker has as many as 14 league goals so far this season despite an injury-plagued campaign. Even though Son doesn’t look as good in front of goal as he has in recent seasons, he still hits the goals and is now at 33/1 to win the award for the first time.

Golden Boot Challengers

Cristiano Ronaldo he was absent from Manchester United’s 1–1 draw with Leicester City. The striker has missed two of United’s last three games. He has only 12 goals in total, but it will still take him some time to catch up with Salah, but if anyone can, it’s Ronaldo. Although, the 37-year-old faces an uphill battle to shorten current odds of 33/1.

sadio mane he has scored 12 league goals in 27 appearances this season and is 40/1 to win the golden boot. He faces a difficult task to make up eight goals to his teammate Salah. However, given the importance of Liverpool’s remaining games and the quality of the players around him, he has a great opportunity to score several goals before the end of the season.

Despite sitting on 12 league goals, harry kane he is the second favorite to take the prize at 18/1. After a slow start to the season, the forward is beginning to be in top form, but he has taken on a new role that has made him more of a creator than a goalscorer. His role in Spurs’ 5-1 win over Newcastle highlighted how his role in the team has changed.

Golden Boot Outsiders

Having scored blanks in seven of his last eight appearances, sterling rahim now it’s 66/1 to win the prize. He has 10 league goals to his name in total and is the joint eighth top scorer. The winger has become a key player in Pep Guardiola’s incredible Manchester City and has proven to be one of the Spaniard’s most trusted men having started eight of Man City’s last 10 league games.

Jamie Vardy he has suffered another injury setback and is ready for another spell on the sidelines. Having already missed 10 of the last 12 games through injury, their chances of winning the award have been greatly affected. He remains the joint eighth top scorer with 10 goals. His absence from the team has hurt his chances of claiming the prize as reflected in the odds of 150/1.

Romelu LukakuThe return of England and Chelsea has been very difficult with only five league goals after 19 games. The Belgian has now lost his place in the squad to Kai Havertz after starting the last three games on the bench. The striker is now seven league appearances without a goal and appears to be out of favor with Thomas Tuchel. Lukaku is 250/1 and too far behind to be considered a serious contender.
