Intriguing battle for top Premier League goalscorer prize with wantaway Lukaku leading the way
The race for the Premier League’s Golden Boot is hotting up with a whole host of top forwards in contention.
Romelu Lukaku with 19 Premier League goals for Everton leads the race in what could be his final season at Goodison Park. Lukaku is the favourite with the bookies at a best 2-1 with betway. It will be interesting to see if the Belgian striker can keep his fine goalscoring run going amid all the unsettling transfer talk, after snubbing a new contract to remain at the Toffees.
Harry Kane is tied on 19 PL goals, but the England striker suffered an ankle injury at the weekend and misses this crucial part of the campaign. Although Kane is expected to return by the end of the season, the England striker will have work to do to catch up with the big Belgian. Betstars at 11-2 have the best Kane price.
Chelsea’s Diego Costa sits nicely just two goals behind Kane and Lukaku. The fiery Spanish international can be backed at 3-1 across the board as he looks to fire Chelsea to the title before heading off to China with another PL winners’ medal.
Alexis Sanchez also has 17 league goals, but after his recent spat with Arsene Wenger (benched against Liverpool), he is another player with an uncertain future and may find his mind elsewhere as the season drifts to a close.
Jermaine Defoe has performed his annual miracle with 14 league goals in an ordinary Sunderland side. You can get close to 100-1 with betdaq on the England striker to finish PL top scorer.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic is currently suspended in the PL for his stray elbow against Bournemouth. Sitting four behind on 15 league goals, Manchester United’s go-to-man cannot be ignored at 18-1 with betfair.
Delli Alli has 13 strikes from midfield. Certainly, Spurs will look to be looking for Alli to deliver the goals in place of the injured Kane, betdaq at 90-1 have a realistic appraisal for this outsider.
Sergio Aguero languishes adrift on 12 league goals. However, with Manchester City dumped out of Europe, the Argentinian can concentrate on firing PL goals to cement City’s place in the top four. Aguero has definite each-way potential at 16-1 with bet365.
