Dominic Calvert Lewin currently leads the race for the Premier League Golden boot with 10 Goals in 10 matches.

Going into the December, Premier League has started to shape up as leaders and pretenders are starting to segregate. The prestigious Golden Boot award is up for grabs as just 3 goals separate the top 8 Players. Thierry Henry holds the record for the most Premier League Golden Boot after winning it 4 times.

Premier League Golden Boot regulars Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Harry Kane are big names missing from the following list.

Leicester striker Jamie Vardy won it last year with 23 goals in 35 matches. After Gameweek 10, Football Express looks into the top 5 contenders for this season’s Golden Boot.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin (Everton) – 10 Goals

23-year-old Englishmen took the Premier League by storm this season as Everton were off to a brilliant start. With 10 goals in 10 matches, He currently leads the race for Golden Boot and was awarded the September Player of the month.

He plays as no.9 in 4-3-3 of Everton with James Rodriguez and Richarlison on either side. As for most no.9’s Calvert-Lewin is exceptionally strong in the air,4 of his 10 goals this season have come from headers.

Even though Everton have struggled recently, Calvert-Lewin has been able to find the back of the net regularly. With the quality of James Rodriguez behind him, the Englishmen is one of the favourites to win the Golden Boot.

“He got 13 goals in the Premier League last season and he’s already got six goals in the first four games. He’s always been the type who runs all day and works the channels well, but he’s become much more aggressive, particularly in the air, and better at finding space in the box.

– Alan Shearer

Son Heung-Min (Tottenham Hotspur) – 9 Goals

October Player of the Month winner has 9 goals in 10 matches. He has formed a formidable partnership with Harry Kane, and the duo involved in 9 goal-assist link up this season.

They are just four goals off equalling Alan Shearer and Chris Sutton’s record of 13 in a single season. And have 29 in the league in total, meaning they are seven short of matching the all-time record which is held by Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba.

Tottenham sits at the top of the table after Gameweek 10. Son is Tottenham’s top scorer with 9 goals in 10 games.

“Son is dynamic, so he runs in behind. He gets the ball and he is direct, he beats people. It’s what Guardiola did at Barcelona, he played with the false 9 with Messi, with Henry on the left and Eto’o on the right. 

– Jermaine Defoe

Mohamed Salah (Liverpool) – 8 Goals

A usual suspect on the list, prolific Egyptian has 8 goals in 10 games this season. Egyptian holds the record for most goals in a season and has won this award 2 times in the past 3 years. With 81 PL goals in 117 appearances for Liverpool, Salah is among one of the best ever goal scorers Premier League has ever seen.

A versatile forward, he primarily plays as a winger on the right flank. A position that allows him to cut into the centre onto his stronger left foot and look for the shot.

Jamie Vardy (Leicester City) – 8 Goals

He gets finer by the age! The reigning Golden Boot winner broke Didier Drogba’s record of Oldest player to win the golden boot last season. The Leicester striker has been among the consistent performers in Premier League over the last 5 years.

Leicester City’s fortunes are directly linked to him. With 8 goals in 9 appearances this season, Leicester’s Fox in the box has no intentions of giving up the Golden Boot without a fight.

 The way the season goes, they heavily rely on his goals. The team’s built around him, he’s a workhorse.

“I really feel that it’s important he gets the chances to score goals. He’s pivotal, everything is around him, he’s a goalscorer and he’s absolutely class.”

– Tim Cahill

Patrick Bamford (Leeds United) – 7 Goals

The Leeds striker scored 16 goals in Championship last season. Even though Leeds brought in Rodrigo for a club-record fee, Patrick Bamford has maintained his place in the starting 11.

He has started in all 10 games for Marcelo Bielsa this term and has scored 7 goals this season. With the amount of chances Leeds create, it won’t be a huge surprise if Patrick Bamford manages to win the Premier League Golden Boot.
