Premier League: Top 8 Contenders For Highest Goal Scorer This Season
The Premier League resumes its rights for 2021 – 2022 season. And the English league is one of the best strikers on the planet. We should have a particularly exciting fight for the title of Premier League top scorer. Focus on the top eight editorial favorites.
8. Raheem Sterling (Manchester City)
Raheem Sterling has shown himself in great shape during Euro 2020.
We start this ranking with Raheem Sterling. Highly visible during Euro 2020, the English winger made up for it after a season in which he scored only 10 Premier League goals with Manchester City.
He was far from his usual standards for the reigning champion. The 26-year-old will try to find a much higher pace!
However, it is difficult to put it higher, as the competition remains fierce among the Sky Blues. With Kevin De Bruyne, Gabriel Jesus, Riyad Mahrez, Phil Foden and now Jack Grealish, danger can come from anywhere on Manchester City!
7. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Arsenal)
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang wants to do much better than last season with Arsenal.
We used to see him at the top of the Premier League scoring charts. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang remained on two seasons with 22 goals in the English championship. Last year, the Arsenal striker struggled a lot more. He has scored “only” 10 Premier League goals.
The 32-year-old expects to do much better this season! Especially since the Gunners will need their attacker. Not competing in Europe this year, the London club is counting on the Gabonese international (62 caps) to return to the very top of the ranking.
6. Son Heung-min (Tottenham)
Son Heung-min could become Spurs’ number one offensive asset.
Son Heung-min is feeling very good at Tottenham. The South Korean winger has extended his contract until June 2025. It must be said that he has established himself as one of the best players in the Premier League with Spurs.
He remains on a very good season, with 17 goals and 10 assists in the league. The 29-year-old could do even better in the coming months.
There is a lot of talk about the departure of Harry Kane. Son Heung-min could very quickly become Spurs’ number one offensive asset! And in the brand new cycle launched by the London club, he could well shake the net many times.
5. Dominic Calvert-Lewin (Everton)
Dominic Calvert-Lewin could approach the 20-goal mark this season.
He keeps improving with Everton. Only 24 years old, Dominic Calvert-Lewin has consistently increased his Premier League stats since 2017.
The recent Euro finalist with England has just scored 16 goals in the last exercise in the English league. He will therefore intend to do even better this year!
And by closing in on the 20-goal mark, Dominic Calvert-Lewin may well enter the fight for the title of Premier League top scorer. No doubt Everton will need the talent of his striker to fight for European places in the league.
4. Mohamed Salah (Liverpool)
Mohamed Salah will still be in the fight for the title of Premier League top scorer.
Coming out of a complicated season, Liverpool still hung the qualification for the Champions League. On a personal level, Mohamed Salah has evolved at a very high level.
He still scored 22 Premier League goals and finished only one goal from Harry Kane. He is expected to do better with a Liverpool side in great shape.
On one edition, Mohamed Salah had also done very hard during the 2017-2018 financial year. For his first season with the Reds, the Egyptian winger had offered nearly 32 goals in 36 days. The 29-year-old can very well hope to do the same for this new edition of the Premier League.
3. Jamie Vardy (Leicester City)
Jamie Vardy will look to continue to shine with Leicester City.
Leicester City continue to surprise every season. In the last year, the Foxes finished fifth in the Premier League.
Brendan Rodgers’ team still has great ambitions for this new edition of the English championship. And it will still be led by a certain Jamie Vardy!
In the last four editions of the Premier League, Jamie Vardy has always scored at least 15 goals. He even led the scorers’ charts in 2020, with 23 goals.
It will still have to be watched very closely in the coming months. In a team that is still very ambitious, the 34-year-old will have the means to shine.
2. Harry Kane (Tottenham)
Harry Kane has won the Premier League’s top scorers three times.
It is not yet known where Harry Kane will play in the coming weeks. Evolving at Tottenham from a young age, the English striker would not be against the idea of changing air, to win his first trophies. Manchester City is also ready to take out the checkbook to secure the services of the captain of the Three Lions.
Whatever happens, at Tottenham or Manchester City, Harry Kane will be in the race to be the Premier League’s top scorer.
Already at the top of this ranking last season with 23 goals, the 28-year-old has won this distinction three times. And why not do it for the fourth time in his career?
1. Romelu Lukaku (Chelsea)
Romelu Lukaku returned to Chelsea this summer.
His transfer made less noise than that of Lionel Messi at PSG. Yet Romelu Lukaku has just returned to Chelsea.
Having already belonged to the Blues from 2011 to 2014, he failed to find a place for himself in his club of hearts. Since then, the Belgian international (95 caps) has taken on a new dimension.
And the London club did not hesitate to pay 115 million euros during this summer transfer window! Coming off two seasons with more than 20 goals with Inter Milan in Serie A, the 28-year-old returns with a knife between his teeth in the Premier League.
He will have the wherewithal to come out on top with the recent Champions League winner and top the Premier League scorers chart.
