One of the most exciting bets of any football season is to try and pick the Premier League Top Goalscorer. The dilemma is whether to bet on one of the favourites or take a punt on a big outsider, several of which have landed some each-way money in recent seasons.
But with no outsider jumping off the page, it’s worth noting that the Premier League’s top goalscorer normally plays for a side that finishes in the top-six.
We tipped-up Jamie Vardy at 20/1 last season and he could easily go close again. But Leicester are less likely to post a top-six finish this season, as they have a difficult Europa League campaign to distract them.
That means there’s a big chance that this season’s Premier League top goalscorer will come from one of the teams fancied to finish in the top-six, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, Arsenal, Tottenham, or Chelsea.
Mane, Salah, and Suarez have all won at least a share of the golden boot for Liverpool in the last seven seasons. Salah finished four short last season and his goals tallies have been regressive. Mane also scored four less than the previous season, as Klopp found the perfect balance of attack and defence to win the title.
Aguero is the shortest of the Man City players in the market, but Sterling and Jesus are fancied to outscore him. But City have plenty of attacking options and they may share the goals.
Martial and Rashford both bagged 17 goals for Manchester United last season and could take a further step forward. But they face opposition for their places from prodigious young talent and potentially interesting outsider Mason Greenwood.
Aubameyang has scored 22 goals in each of the last two seasons and, with Arsenal progressing under Mikel Arteta, there’s a chance he could rack up a few more. Aubameyang is a rock-solid each-way chance at 6/1.
Harry Kane scored 25, 29, and 30 goals between 2016 – 2018 and he could reclaim his title with an injury-free season. He still managed 17 and 18 goals in the last two seasons in which he’s missed plenty of matches.
Timo Werner is our Premier League top goalscorer tip, as odds of 12/1 mean he’s double the price of the likes of Salah, Kane, and Aubameyang. Abraham (15) and Hazard 16 have been Chelsea’s top scorers in the last two seasons but, with Chelsea bringing in some creative playmakers to supply him with plenty of chances, this world-class young centre-forward could easily grab 20+ goals.
