The hotly contested race for the premier league golden boot is on. The top guns of the English Premier League are giving their all to claim the golden boot.
Premier League Golden Boot
Last year, Liverpool’s legend Mohammad Salah and Heung-min shared the award and joined the ranks of Cristiano Ronaldo, Thierry Henry, and Kane. This year too, the race is as exciting as ever.
The Norwegian sensation Erling Haaland leads the race with two back-to-back hat tricks and a total goal tally of 10.
But with a big chunk of the season remaining, the opportunities are plentiful for the top strikers of the English Club to improve their goal tally and boost their chances of claiming the coveted golden boot award.

Who Will Be the Top Scorer of the Premier League 2022/2023?
With plenty of action remaining in the premier league, the tally is bound to change. However, presently, these are the top contender for the golden boot;
⚽ Erling Halland
Erling Halland has undoubtedly caught the attention of football fans across Europe. His recent performance is nothing short of extraordinary. Two back-to-back hat-tricks against Crystal Palace and Nottingham Forest at the Etihad and ten total goals in just six premier league games put him at the top of the chart of leading goal scorers. If he continues his phenomenal run in the ongoing seasons, he will undoubtedly be crowned the king of the Premier League this season.
⚽ Alexander Mitrovic
The Serbian international who plays for Fulham is second in the current premier league tally of the top Scorers. Given his record-breaking run of 43 goals in the previous season, he undoubtedly holds the potential to dethrone Halland from the top position and occupy it himself. He recently struck a decisive blow to end Brighton’s unbeaten run and helped bring them down 2-1 at Craven Cottage. So far, he has scored six goals and is poised to add more in the coming games.
⚽ Harry Kane
Harry Kane is no stranger to Golden boot as the Tottenham frontman has not one but three to his name. And when he competes for the award, it’s impossible to ignore him over the others. He has five goals to his name in the premier league. The English captain will surely hope to sharpen his skills further with more goals at the club levels, given the FIFA world cup is almost upon us.
⚽ Ivan Toney
Another top gun who has a solid claim to this year’s golden boot is none other than the phenomenal bees defender Ivan Toney. His extraordinary run of 33 goals pushed his team to the top of the premier league. He has already found nets five times and is head to head with Henry Kane. If he continues his form, he will undoubtedly present a formidable challenge to Halland and Mitrovic, who currently sit at the top of the tally.
⚽ Mohammad Salah
Mohammad Salah is a giant and could wreak havoc on his opponent any day. Therefore, although he currently sits at the bottom of the league’s tally with just one goal, he could top the chart in the coming days. The Egyptian is a key player for Liverpool, and his tremendous performance stealing 23 goals and managing 13 assists in 35 games speaks volumes about the kind of player he is. The prolific striker had already bagged the golden boot last year, and it won’t be a surprise if he lifts the award this year too.
⚽ Kevin DeBruyne
Another gem of the English Premier League who could upset the present tally of top Scorers is Kevin DeBruyne. Already nominated as the player of the season, Kevin DeBruyne could very well go on to claim the golden boot. The Belgian midfielder had a brilliant run last season with 15 goals and eight assists in 30 games. He is a versatile player with extraordinary control over the ball. Besides, he surely knows how to find the nets; therefore, we still count on him as a top runner for the golden boot.
Race To Premier’s League Golden Boot
The Manchester City newcomer, Erling Halland, is right now well ahead of his opponents in the race for the golden boot. The Norwegian shows great potential, and his goal tally reflects his talent. Under Guardiola, the young striker certainly seems to repeat the numbers shown with Borussia Dortmund.
However, Klopp’s men – Mohammad Salah and the newcomer David Nunez can’t be ignored because they both have potential. The same is the case with Harry Kane and Toney, who both are in excellent form this season. Could one of these lift the golden boot, or will there be a surprise name to win the top scorer title in the English Premier League 2022/2023? The picture will be more evident as the richest league on the continent progresses.
