Premier League Golden Boot For The 2021/22 Season- There has been an intense race for the golden boot in the Premier League this season. Mohammed Salah is currently in pole position to win the race. He has already scored 22 goals so far this season. Son Heung Min is in the second position with 19 goals and Cristiano Ronaldo is also in the contention with 18 goals.
Here is the list of the contenders for the Premier League Golden Boot For The 2021/22 Season
Mohamed Salah: (Liverpool)
Mohamed Salah has scored 22 goals in 34 matches. Liverpool will play against Tottenham Hotspur, Aston Villa, Southampton and Wolves in their next four matches. Mohamed Salah will mostly start in the remaining matches for the Reds. Liverpool is just one point behind Manchester City and the title race might go till the last game week of the season. Mohammed Salah has been in great form this season and he is certainly eyeing winning the golden boot.
Son Heung Min: (Tottenham Hotspur)
Son Heung Min has been the talisman for Tottenham Hotspur this season. He has been phenomenal under the management of Antonio Conte. The partnership between him and Harry Kane is the reason why Tottenham Hotspur are still in the top four race despite a few problems in the side. Tottenham Hotspur will face Liverpool, Arsenal, Burnley and Norwich City in the next four matches. Son Heung Min has already scored 19 goals this season. The fixture difficulty of Heung Min Son is higher than Mohammed Salah. However, Tottenham Hotspur is currently at the fifth position in the league table behind Arsenal. If Spurs have to get into the top four, Heung Min Son will certainly have to overperform.
Cristiano Ronaldo: (Manchester United)
Cristiano Ronaldo is also another contender for the golden boot this season. He has also scored 18 goals so far. However, Manchester United have played two extra matches. So, Cristiano Ronaldo has two fewer matches than others to challenge for the Golden Boot. It has been an awful season for Manchester United. They are at the 6th position in the league table. They can only have a few positives from this season and Cristiano Ronaldo’s performance will certainly be one of those takeaways for them.
Diogo Jota: (Liverpool)
Diogo Jota has started the season really well for the Reds. However, after the arrival of Diaz, the game time of Diogo Jota has reduced significantly. Diogo Jota has scored 15 goals so far. He can finish the season on a high and match the tally of Mohammed Salah. However, it is looking quite unlikely at this point in time for Liverpool.
Who Will Eventually Win The Premier League Golden Boot For The 2021/22 Season?
As of now, Mohammed Salah is the hot favourite to win the golden boot race. The main threat for him could be Son Heung Min at this point in time. The others will have to work really harder to get into that position. The end of the season is certainly going to be interesting as the league winner is not decided yet and the top four race is also going till the last game week.
