Mohamed Salah was superb for Liverpool once again last season as the Egyptian managed to score 23 Premier League goals whilst creating 14 assists in 35 Premier League appearances, seeing him claim the Golden Boot for a third time.
The former Chelsea winger’s worst-ever Premier League tally whilst at Liverpool is the 19 he managed in 2019/20, showing the staggering levels of consistency that the 30-year-old has produced in recent years. He also holds the record for most goals since the start of the 20-team format with 32 in the 2017/18 campaign.
Last season, Salah was forced to share the Premier League Golden Boot with Son Heung-min following the South Korean’s impressive 23-goal haul, of which none of these came from the penalty spot.
Since moving from Bayer Leverkusen back in the summer of 2015, the 30-year-old has scored 10+ goals in all but his first Premier League campaign, with his last two seasons being the best two of his career, having also found the back of the net on 17 occasions in 2020/21.
Ollie Watkins was Aston Villa’s top scorer last season with 11 goals to his name across all competitions, a mere four more than second top scorer Danny Ings.
Notably, all 11 of Watkins' goals came in the Premier League last campaign across 35 appearances, this was three worse off than his best tally of 14 just one season prior.
Despite only playing 18 games for Newcastle last season, striker Callum Wilson was the Magpies' top scorer with eight goals, a good record when taking into account their struggles under Steve Bruce prior to Eddie Howe’s appointment at St James’ Park.
In 2020/21 Wilson managed to fire in 12 goals in 26 appearances, showing just how useful the 30-year-old former Bournemouth striker could be to Newcastle if he can remain fit for a whole campaign. In 170 Premier League matches, Wilson has scored a total of 61 goals.
As ever, Wilfried Zaha was Crystal Palace’s main source of goals having scored 15 last season, nearly twice as many as second top scorer Conor Gallagher who managed eight whilst on loan from Chelsea.
Undoubtedly, Zaha will go down as an Eagles legend as the 29-year-old has scored 60 Premier League goals in 248 league appearances since returning back to Selhurst Park from Manchester United on a permanent basis in February 2015 after a short loan spell earlier in that campaign.
