Premier League 21/22 Golden Boot race

The Golden Boot race is always an exciting race and one that many will continue to look at as a way of further enhancing the way they enjoy football.

Indeed, many players – especially attackers – will simply be judged on the number of goals they have been able to score throughout the season, and it is a measuring stick that has lasted the test of time.

There are some that will look at the number of goals scored in order to place bets when they use sites like for all of their wagering needs, as this can potentially help them to try and identify possible bets that they can make.

With the Premier League season coming to an end for another year, the Golden Boot is going to be on the minds of many.

The Mirror has decided to take a look at the players who are leading the charts:

Mohamed Salah – 22 goals

Mohamed Salah has been phenomenal for a number of seasons now, which is why Liverpool fans are desperate to see the Egyptian sign a new contract imminently.

He currently leads the race for the Golden Boot as he has 22 goals to his name, and it would be hard to bet against him getting the award for the third time in his career. He still has to play against Tottenham Hotspur, Aston Villa, Southampton and Wolverhampton Wanderers, so it would be wise to expect him to add to his tally.

Son Heung-min – 19 goals

Salah’s closest rival for this award is Tottenham’s Son Heung-min, with the South Korean continuing to show how important he is to the north London side.

Whilst Harry Kane is typically the man getting the headlines for putting the ball into the back of the net, Son has managed to lead the charts for Spurs this season as he has 19 goals so far.

Could he add to those? Well, games against Liverpool, Arsenal, Burnley and Norwich City remain, so there is every chance that he could.

Cristiano Ronaldo – 18 goals

Let’s face it, we have all had our own opinions on Cristiano Ronaldo and his second spell with Manchester United, with many of us having written him off before he even pulled the jersey back on.

Naturally, CR7 has shown all of us not to count all of our eggs before they hatch, as he has been incredibly effective once again. He has 18 goals this season, with the one he netted against Brentford making him the leader for all goals scored at home by a single player this season.
