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 14 goals in his first eight games after netting another hat-trick in the Manchester derby.

Haaland now has twice as many goals as the next top scorer in the league, Tottenham's Harry Kane who has scored in three straight matches after his penalty in the North London Derby.

Fulham top scorer Aleksandar Mitrovic, stuck in third place on six goals, hasn't scored in a month and came off injured against Newcastle.

There are now six players with five goals each. Liverpool's Roberto Firmino joined the group after netting a brace against Brighton. The Seagulls' Leandro Trossard did one better than Firmino in the same match, registering a hat trick at Anfield. Leicester's James Maddison (two goals vs. Forest), and Arsenal's Gabriel Jesus, who also tallied in the NLD, are on five goals, too.

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 did the sportsbooks think is the frontrunner for the top scorer title in England at the start of the season? It was Haaland ahead of everyone else. 

Previous winners Salah and Kane, were 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, clocked 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.
