Son Heung-Min Scores Four In Race For Top Premier League Goalscorer
September 22, 2020
The Tottenham Hotspur team are revelling in their 5-2 defeat of Southampton last weekend, and none more so than Son Heung-Min who scored a staggering four of the team’s five goals. All four goals were assisted by captain Harry Kane, who also scored himself. The duo are on fire and it is little wonder that both players feature in the early betting for Top Premier League Goalscorer. Bookmaker Bet365 offers odds of 16/1 that the 28-year old Son Heung-Min will win the Golden Boot at the end of the season, with Kane tipped at 8/1.
Danny Ings scored the two Southampton goals on Sunday, and rumours abound that Spurs are actively seeking to recruit him to join Kane and Heung-Min. Danny finished last season with a tally of 22 Premier League goals, placing him second equal with Arsenal captain, Pierre-Emerick Augameyang. But his tremendous form is not enough to make him a favourite with the bookies just now, and Bet365 offers good value odds of 16-1 that the 28-year old will be the top Premier League goalscorer this season.
With a recent contract extension taking his career at Emirates Stadium to at least 2023, Pierre-Emerick Augameyang is at the top of his game and he is fancied to be top goalscorer with odds of 5/1. The 31-year old recently said that he wants to become a legend, and in his dual roles as captain of both Arsenal and the Gabon national side is certainly heading in the right direction.
Mo Salah knows how it feels to be a legend, having won the Champions League last year and the 2019/20 Premier League with his team mates at Liverpool. The 28-year old Egyptian scored 19 goals last season, helping the Reds to win the League last season with a stunning margin of 18 points over runner-up Manchester City. Mo is the favourite to win the Golden Boot this season, with current odds of 4/1 from Bet365.
Timo Werner only joined Chelsea this summer but the 24-year old German has already been bestowed the nickname “Turbo Timo” by fans. Timo was a prolific scorer in the Bundesliga for his team RB Leipzig and manager Frank Lampard will be expecting the youngster to repeat his success at Stamford Bridge. Betfred offers odds of 12/1 that Werner will be top scorer at the end of his debut season.
Identical odds of 12/1 are also available for Liverpool winger, Sadio Mane. The 28-year old from Senegal scored 18 goals last season, just one behind team-mate Mo Salah, and it is little wonder that the Reds dominated the Premier League in 2019/20 with such an impressive array of goal-scoring talent.
Last but definitely not least, Jamie Vardy is a prolific goal scorer for his team, Leicester City, with over 100 Premier League goals to date. The 33-year old narrowly won the Golden Boot last season, with a tally of 23 goals and the long odds of 12/1 on offer at the moment are puzzling given his talent and track record.
