Premier League top goal scorers 2022-2023: Updated golden boot rankings

Many imagined that Erling Haaland could potentially terrorize the Premier League as the frontman for defending champions Manchester City. Those predictions are turning into reality as the Norwegian scoring machine has 11 goals in his first seven games after scoring again at Wolves on Saturday. That's five straight matches with a goal for the big Norwegian striker. 

Fulham top scorer Aleksandar Mitrovic is still stuck on six goals, after failing to make up any ground on Haaland in his team's Friday match at Nottingham Forest. He's now been caught by Tottenham's Harry Kane, who netted against Leicester City on Saturday.

Brentford's Ivan Toney is alone in fourth place in the scorer's table on five goals, but the Arsenal backline hasn't been in much of a giving mood to start the season and he couldn't add to that tally in Sunday's 3-0 defeat. Gabriel Jesus did find the net, though, to move onto four for the season.

In the group of nine players on three goals is last season's joint top scorer Son Heung-min, who came off the bench to score a hat-trick against Leicester City on Saturday. That ended his frustrating goal drought to start the season.

But "own goal" still has had the better start to the season than all the above with 12 players scoring on their own net so far.

As was the case last season, The Sporting News will update the top scorers' table with assists and minutes played serving as the first and second tiebreakers as per major European tournaments run by UEFA.

Premier League odds to win Golden Boot

Who do the sportsbooks think is the frontrunner for the top scorer title in England? It's Haaland ahead of everyone else. 

Previous winners Salah and Kane, are considered to be in with a good shot, both ahead of their other star teammates Nunez (Liverpool) and Son (Tottenham).

Cristiano Ronaldo, who is still on the books at Man United, but whose future at the club seems tenuous, clocks in with the seventh best odds to be the scoring king in England.

The biggest snubs by the betting market might be Diogo Jota (40/1) and West Ham newcomer Gianluca Scamacca (40/1).

Premier League Golden Boot table 2021/22

It came down to the final day of the 2021/22 season between Tottenham's Son Heung-min and Liverpool's Mohamed Salah. Son's two goals at Norwich City on the final day allowed him to momentarily move ahead of Salah in the scoring table. But the Liverpool star came off the bench and netted late to catch Son, as the two stars shared the Golden Boot on 23 goals.

Cristiano Ronaldo (18 goals) was charging hard down the final stretch, but he ultimately came up short. Salah's Liverpool's teammates, Sadio Mane (16 goals) and Diogo Jota (15 goals), finished even further behind. And Manchester City had eight players with seven or more goals on the list. Harry Kane and Jamie Vardy, who were the previous two Golden Boot winners, were also top 10 finishers.
