2019 Premier League Top Goalscorer Contenders
Some bookies are as low as 7/2 about Harry Kane adding the 2019 Premier League Top Goalscorer award to his wins in the 2015/16 and 2016/17 seasons, but the Tottenham striker looks more than a fair each-way price if you can get on at the 5/1 that was available with William Hill at the time of writing. Kane burst on to the scene in 2014/15 with 21 goals to finish second behind Sergio Aguero and, being top scorer for both the next two seasons, he again finished second behind Mo Salah in 2017/18. He only finished joint sixth last season with 17 goals but missed far too many games with injuries. The negatives are he could get injured again, whilst he also has a tendency to be a slow starter. That means it could be worth seeing if his price drifts after a few games.
The Egyptian has delighted Premier League fans in his two seasons at Liverpool and, though his tally of 22 last season was 10 goals short of what he scored the season before, he still finished in a tie for first place. If he stays injury-free, it’s hard to see him not landing at least some each-way money, and Liverpool should continue on an upward curve this season. If Liverpool can sign a quality midfielder who can see a pass, Salah may well get 30+ goals again.
The Argentinean has been a model of consistency since arriving in England and he’s scored 20 or more goals in six of his eight seasons at Man City. Despite landing at least a bit of each-way money in seven of those seasons, he’s only been the Premier League’s top goalscorer once. The other negative this year is the emergence of Gabriel Jesus may mean the 31-year-old plays slightly fewer games than in the past.
The Gabonese International showed his potential for being a Premier League top goalscorer tip at the end of the 2017/18 season and came good with 22 goals last season to tie for first place. The problem with taking a best-priced 9/1 about him repeating or bettering that effort this season is the transfer market has been rife with rumours about him moving. The gut-feeling is he’ll stay but, as his price probably won’t be much shorter if that’s confirmed, it might be better holding your bets until he is.
The Senegalese captain has become an improved goalscorer since moving from Southampton to Liverpool and two goals in last season’s final game saw him land a share of the Premier League top goalscorer award at odds of 80/1. However, the best price you’ll get this year is 14/1 and, for me, his fellow Liverpool striker Mo Salah is more likely to outscore him this season.
The Man City and England striker keeps on improving under the tutelage of Pep Guardiola and 18 and 17 goals in the last two Premier League seasons has seen him finish fifth and sixth in the top goalscorer charts. He doesn’t need to improve much to hit the places, but I can’t see him scoring the 25+ goals that have been needed to be top goalscorer in eight of the last 10 seasons.
Vardy may not play for one of the top-six clubs, but he boasts third, fourth, and fifth-place finishes in the Premier League Top Goalscorer charts in the last five seasons with totals of 24, 20, and 18 goals. The case for him this year is the way he finished last season after the arrival of manager Brendan Rogers, scoring nine goals in the last 10 games of the season. That sort of form makes him look a cracking each-way bet at 20/1, with Leicester having bought wisely over the summer.
Premier League Top Goalscorer 2019 Tips
Players from top-six sides have dominated the top goalscorer charts, and Mo Salah looks a strong choice with even bigger things expected from Liverpool this season. Jamie Vardy also looks a value option, with Leicester expected to go well.
