There are a lot of things to be decided until the end of the season and one of them is the league’s top scorer. So as Premier League enters into its final stretch, here are the leading contenders for this season’s Golden Boot award in Premier League.

Jamie Vardy (19 Goals, Leicester City)

The Englishman looked to be running away with the award at the start of the season with 13 strikes in just a 10-game period. But goals have dried up for the Leicester front-man as he has managed just 2 in last 10. This has given other strikes an opportunity to regain ground on him

Danny Ings (18 Goals, Southampton)

Ings has been revitalised since his move to Southampton and the Saints have benefitted from the 27-year-old’s form. Ralph Haasenhuttl’s men who were destined to relegation but have steered away from the drop zone and much of it is down to the Englishman’s contribution in the final third.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (17 Goals, Arsenal)

The Gabon international has been one of the very few positives in a disappointing campaign for the Gunners. Though the quality of service into Aubameyang has been far from decent, the 31-year-old has still managed to be among the goals this season.

Mohamed Salah (17 Goals, Liverpool)

The Egyptian has been one of the best signings in Liverpool’s history. After guiding the Reds to their first-ever EPL title, his eyes will be set on the top scorer’s crown. The Egyptian won the title back in 2017-18 and will be hopeful of repeating the feat once again.

Sergio Aguero (16 Goals, Manchester City)

The Argentine has been struggling with injuries this season and has seen his game time cut short due to it. The 32-year-old’s chances to climb up the leaderboard are looking very slim as he was suffered an injury in the game against Burnley and is expected to miss the rest of the season.
