Mohamed Salah will be looking to retain his status as Premier League Golden Boot winner in the 2022/23 season.
The Egyptian managed to score 23 goals in 35 matches, despite missing fixtures due to representing his country at AFCON. Salah, has won the Premier League Golden Boot on three separate occasions, including in his first season at Liverpool (2017/18)l, when he scored 32 Premier League goals, the most since the competition switched to a 20-team format.
Erling Haaland & Harry Kane
Erling Haaland will be expected to bounce back from his Community Shield disappointment when the Premier League starts this weekend.
The Norwegian scored 85 goals in 88 matches for Borussia Dortmund and will be hopeful of replicating this kind of goalscoring form at the Etihad Stadium, especially with the creative talents that surround him.
Meanwhile, Harry Kane won the Golden Boot as recently as 2020/21, his third top goalscorer award in his Premier League career with Tottenham Hotspur.
The Three Lions captain fired in 17 Premier League goals last season and will be expected to better his tally, having managed to score just one in his first 13 league matches last campaign due to the heavy transfer speculation around him over a potential move to Manchester City.
Gabriel Jesus, Darwin Nunez & Son Heung-min
Gabriel Jesus will be hoping that his summer move to Arsenal can further develop his career having spent the last couple of campaigns on the fringes of Manchester City’s squad.
The 25-year-old’s Premier League record is impressive, having scored 58 and created 32 assists in 159 matches. He managed eight goals and nine assists in just 1,878 minutes last season.
Meanwhile, Darwin Nunez got off to a great start to his Liverpool career in the Community Shield, as the Uruguayan managed a goal and assist against Manchester City as his side won 3-1.
Nunez, joined the club from Benfica in the summer where he managed to find the back of the net 34 times in 41 matches last season.
The final player on this list is Son Heung-min who notably managed to tie with Salah for the Golden Boot last season, as the South Korean fired in 23 goals in 35 appearances. Son has managed a total of 93 goals and 52 assists in 232 Premier League matches.
