Premier League Golden Boot odds – Sergio Aguero leads the way at 15/8
Will this season's Premier League Golden Boot race be as exciting as last season's?
October 4th, 2016
Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane finished 2015/16 as the top scorer in the Premier League having banged in 25 goals for the north London side, however hot on his heels were Leicester’s Jamie Vardy and Man City’s Sergio Aguero with 24 apiece.
The Premier League Golden Boot winner is usually from a side challenging for top honours and last season’s winner was no exception with Spurs battling with the Foxes for the title towards the end of the campaign.
This season will present us with plenty of options from which to choose with the likes of Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea and Spurs all expected to be in the mix as regards title contenders.
Argentinian Sergio Aguero isn’t exactly a stranger to heading the scoring charts and the Manchester City star is expected to be in amongst this season’s top scorers, however will he finish higher than Harry Kane? Given that last season’s winner is currently absent through injury the bookies believe that he will , however once Kane makes a return to action in the coming weeks he will be eager to get back in amongst the goals once again.
Jamie Vardy has made a very slow start to the campaign and the bookies are far from confident of his chances of winning this season’s Golden Boot, however one name which comes very much to the fore is Manchester United’s summer signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic, the Swede banging them in with reckless abandon so far this season. The bookies make him third favourite to finish top of the scoring charts with Sky Bet going 15/2 for Zlatan to win the Golden Boot.
One shouldn’t forget about Chelsea’s Diego Costa and Everton’s Romelu Lukaku, both players featuring highly in the scoring for their respective clubs so far this season.
