Premier League Top Scorer 2020-21
Many footballing legends have competed over the seasons to be the top goal scorer of each individual season. If you score the most goals in a singular season, you are presented with the golden boot, a trophy. Currently, Thierry Henry has won the most Golden Boot awards with four to his name. The player currently playing in the Premier League with the most golden boots is Tottenham striker, Harry Kane and the holder of the award is Jamie Vardy, who scored 23 goals in 35 games last season.
Two Tottenham Hotspur players will be in the running for the award this season, one being Son Heung-Min. He is the top goal scorer in the league this season so far, scoring 8 goals in the 1st 6 games. These 8 goals have come from just 12 shots and so is averaging a goal conversion of 67% and is also averaging one goal every 58 minutes. With Harry Kane by his side on 8 assists already, he will most definitely continue to supply and that leads nicely onto the second player. Harry Kane himself will be one of the favourites to win the award, having scored 5 goals in the first 6 games and we all know that Kane only needs one chance to find the net.
Jamie Vardy, the current holder, will be looking to defend himself for this season with already 6 goals. On this list of contenders, he has the best goal conversion rate, being 75%. His terrifying pace will continue to split defences despite Vardy being 33 years of age. New Leicester City signing, Cengiz Under will add support to Vardy in the wide areas of the pitch as well, having already assisted Vardy once this season.
Another Englishman has started the season in phenomenal form, that being of Dominic Calvert-Lewin. The rangy striker has scored 4 of his 7 goals with his head, with the other 3 coming with his right foot. Not very many expected Calvert-Lewin to perform to any degree this season, but under Ancelotti so far, he has set the world alight and I would say he is up their as the most inform striker in the league.
Egyptian Mohammed Salah won the golden boot back in 2018, almost breaking the record of 34 goals set by Alan Shearer and Andy Cole, however, that was when each team played 42 games. Salah got 32 that season and so far this season has scored 6 goals in 6 games. Sadio Mane will also be another favourite to win the award being on 4 goals in 5 league games. He finished joint top scorer in the 2018/19 season on 22 goals and in the following season he scored 18.
