While the party line from top players is always that ‘it’s all about the team’ and while we’re sure they do believe this speil on some level, we all know they are just humans, and they love the personal glory of winning individual awards.
While many see the PFA Player of the Year award as the pinnacle for any Premier League player when it comes to strikers the prize that they covet above all others is the Golden Boot, which is handed out to the player with the most goals at the end of each top-flight season.
So for those of you who like a flutter on the footy, check out the latest unibet bonus code and then let’s have a look at the five favourites to win the 2019/2020 Premier League Golden Boot.
Sadio Mane 12/1
Senegalese speedster Mane took his game to the next level last season, netting a career-best 22 Premier League goals, a total that saw him share the 2018/2019 Golden Boot with fellow African attackers Salah and Aubameyang.
The 27-year-old’s ability to score goals in big games was a crucial factor in Liverpool collecting a whopping 97 league points and securing their sixth European Cup after beating Spurs 2-0 in Madrid.
The former Southampton man is very much coming into the prime of his career and with Jurgen Klopp’s side looking to push on to further success next season, we expect Mane to get in or around the 20 goal mark next time out.
Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang 7/1
Few can argue that flamboyant frontman Aubameyang hasn’t done exactly what Arsenal brought him to the Emirates for, netting a hugely impressive 32 Premier League goals in just 49 games since moving to north London from Borussia Dortmund in January 2018.
Blessed with blistering pace and natural finishing ability, his total of 22 strikes in just 30 top flights starts was enough to see him share the Golden Boot last season.
Throughout his career, Auba has always managed to find the back of the net at a rapid rate, although our only hesitation with lumping on him is that Arsenal boss Unai Emery often leaves him out of the starting XI for away games.
Sergio Aguero 6/1
Man City’s Aguero is not just one of the best strikers currently in English Football, he is one of the best players the Premier League has ever seen.
The Argentine hitman has now hit 20 goals or more in five successive top-flight seasons and has impressively transformed into more of an all-round forward player under Pep Guardiola.
At 31-years-old Aguero looks as sharp as ever and few will bet against him firing Man City to a third Premier League title in a row next season.
Mohamed Salah 5/1
Salah made a mockery of those who called him a one season wonder after his record-breaking 31 Premier League strikes in 2017/18, following that up with another 22 goals last campaign.
The Egyptian King has now established himself as one of Europe’s top attacking talents and his record of 53 goals in 73 top-flight appearances for the Reds in quite frankly ridiculous.
The 27-year-old will be hungry for more success after lifting the Champions League and if the last couple of seasons has thought us anything it is that Mo Salah just never stops scoring goals.
Harry Kane 4/1
Spurs talisman Kane is the man that leading bookmakers such as Ladbrokes fear the most when it comes to winning the Golden Boot, and to be fair, it’s hard to argue.
The England captains 17 goals last season was his lowest total since the 2013/14, although he did suffer from persistent ankle injuries throughout the campaign, starting just 27 games.
It’s no great secret that the 25-year-old is obsessed with goals and winning this award in particular. Kane remains one of the games deadliest finishers and should he stay injury free he has every chance of adding to the two Golden Boots he already has on display in his trophy cabinet.
