The fierce battle for Premier League Golden Boot next season will be exceptionally alluring to be sure, with the Premier League season set to kick off next weekend, football fans worldwide will be looking forward to another high-scoring series and are willing to see their team striker/forward heap on goalscoring form.
In the running are some old EPL face and some new imports, Premier League champion Chelsea and Arsenal have spent enormously to bring in the clinical and deadly striker, while Manchester United have splashed their money on tried and tested Belgian goalscorer in England. With everything taken into account, the path to be crowned Premier League top scorer will be wildly challenged.
Today at Cheapgoals.com we take a look at the top 5 strikers who are most likely going to be in the thick of brushing aside defender and smashing balls into the net.
The performance of these players could prompt individual honors, as well as enable their teams to challenge for the EPL title.
1. Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur)
It would be absurd, to begin with, anybody other than Harry Kane, the winner of the Golden Boot in each of the past two Premier League campaign. The Englishman smashed in 7 solid goals in the last two fixtures of last season to end the season with a total of 29 goals. He bettered his goal count of 25 from the past season, and it wouldn’t be astounding in the event that he reaches the 30-goal mark this year.
A deadly and clinical finisher Harry Kane is, blending perfectly to Spurs open and attacking style of football superbly. It is no big surprise that he gets such a large number of chances in front of goals, the greater part of which he takes. At only 24, he has 78 Premier League goals altogether. He is without a doubt the most real threat to Alan Shearer’s record of 260 Premier League goals, which right now looks unassailable for any striker.
Kane is most likely one of the heaviest tops picks to win the Golden Boot again this season to make it an awesome treble. He has hinted at no backing off and is just beginning to hit his prime. In the event that he can remain fit for most of the season, Harry will definitely take some stopping that’s if Tottenham season goes on a sweet ride considering the way rivals are buckling up for the coming campaign.
2. Sergio Aguero (Manchester City)
Ever since his arrival from Atletico Madrid, Aguero has been a ruthless and clinical striker and has been ever-present among the EPL top striker throughout the last couple of seasons, it is momentous that Sergio Aguero has won the Golden Boot award just once. Despite his fair share of niggling injury problems, the Argentine has been the most productive goalscorer in English football in the course of the last 6 seasons, scoring at least 20 goals and above.
Aged 29, Aguero hasn’t hinted at an excessive sign of slowing down, Pep Guardiola led side is relied upon to blend in easily next season with the arrival of top players, and their star striker will assume a tremendous part. He will, obviously, share the goalscoring duties with Brazilian wonder-kid Gabriel Jesus.
The real expectation will, in any case, be from Aguero. On the off chance that he can be injury free for 30 games or more, it is guaranteed that he will score no less than 20-25 goals and that will surely be an extra edge to Manchester City’s title push, and furthermore, his individual mission to be the league top goalscorer.
3. Romelu Lukaku (Manchester United)
Romelu Lukaku didn’t realize what hit him last season when Kane’s rain in 7 goals in the last two fixtures and pushed the former Toffees forward into second place. Having joined Manchester United after a transfer worth £75 million, the Belgian international would look forward in cleaning his boots and pick up the goal baton he dropped and score more.
It’s a considerable lot of money on the grounds that right now the impression of Lukaku is that he’s somewhat of a flat-track bully but he’s scored lots of goals at Everton where they don’t make the same number of chances as United will.
Lukaku will fill the void that Zlatan Ibrahimovic has left. They certainly needed a striker, he’s got Premier League pedigree. He knows the league inside out.
Manchester United struggled to secure three points past the lesser team last season, while Lukaku was heartlessly proficient against such lesser sides. It seems like a match made in paradise. The former Anderlecht and Chelsea man scored 25 league goal last season, denoting the first time to have outperformed the 20-goal mark in the competition. He could be fitter, he could work harder but there’s significantly more to come from him and United fans will be hoping that Jose Mourinho can bring that out of him.
4. Alvaro Morata (Chelsea)
Real Madrid import is a genuine dark house in the Golden Boot race, Alvaro Morata became Chelsea’s club record signing just like Arsenal’s Lacazette though the fee is clearly somewhat distant. The Spaniard assumed an insignificant role off the bench amid his brief spells in Juventus and Madrid. At Stamford Bridge, he will be replacing want-away fellow Spaniard Diego Costa as the main man up front. Costa didn’t win the Golden Boot amid his time with the Blues, but scored at least 20 in both the 2014/15 and 2016/17 seasons, when Chelsea won the Premier League.
Morata has shown a knack for scoring imperative goals in the past. His 15 goals in 26 appearances (for the most part coming in as a sub) with the Los Blancos. Morata arrival at Stamford Bridge and getting a regular game week in week out will surely spark the fire in him, his goal scoring responsibility will be significantly high.
5. Alexandre Lacazette (Arsenal)
Gunner’s club record signing from Olympique Lyon has a remarkable record in the French Ligue 1, for the past 3 seasons Alexandre Lacazette has registered an incredible 77 goals despite the France League not being as competitive as the Bundesliga, Seria A, and Premier League, that is an entirely fantastic return.
Though, Lacazette looks like a perfect forward for the North London club, Arsenal have been feeling the loss of an absolute and clinical goalscorer since Robin van Persie’s move to Manchester United in 2012, and with extra benefits from midfield maestro’s of Granit Xhana, Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez (on the off chance that he stays), Lacazette could surely flourish. At 26, he is in the prime of his career. The Gunners could have a real possibility of challenging for the Premier League title if the France international can assume a starring role up as an inbox finisher, with Sanchez and Ozil providing the decisive pass, Lacazette is surely going to terrify EPL goalkeeper.
