The Premier League has already seen 14 players taking their goal tally in the double digits in the ongoing season. But who amongst them is in the top five?
Title race is not the only race heating up right now. We are also in treat for the Golden Boot’s race with both Sergio Aguero and Mo Salah on 17 goals each. Who will win the Golden Boot and who will help their club win the title?
5. Marcus Rashford (Manchester United):
Marcus Rashford has become such an important player for Manchester United that OGS rested the forward against Fulham to keep him fresh for the Champions League fixture. It says a lot about Rashford’s performances and progress in the last few weeks. The Englishman has now scored 9 goals and has provided 6 assists in 22 league appearances.
4. Harry Kane (Tottenham):
With 14 goals and 4 assists in the League, Harry Kane looked all set to fight for the Golden Boot once again. And most importantly, the Englishman was ready to fight for his first trophy at the club. But with his ankle injury against Manchester United, all those hopes were gone. (Or at least it seemed that way) Kane has started training with the team in the past few days and with Tottenham still in the title race, the striker will be itching to get back on the field.
3. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Arsenal):
The Gabon international started his season is fine form and he was also on the top of the goalscoring chart for a while. But after a fantastic December, Aubameyang has failed to deliver top performances week in week out. He now has 15 goals and 4 assists in the league and was rested for Arsenal’s game against Huddersfield Town.
2. Mo Salah (Liverpool):
A few weeks ago, a simple thought of someone else taking the top spot from Mo Salah seemed stupid. But with Sergio Aguero in top form and the Egyptian’s small blip in the form, Salah now finds himself at No. 2. He still did a fine job of returning to the goal scoring form with a goal against Bournemouth, as Liverpool also returned to the winning ways. But the Reds still need much better and consistent performances from Mo to win the league title.
1. Sergio Aguero (Manchester City):
Sergio Aguero – What a player! Just when you think he is not at his best anymore, the Argentine will hit back at you with something you have never seen before. And that is exactly what he did in the past few weeks. How many players can say that they scored two consecutive hat-tricks against two teams from Top 6? Not many. But that is what the striker did against Arsenal and Chelsea. And he took his goal tally to 17 goals – joint best in the league. (Remember the days when we though Aguero’s City career was over after Guardiola’s appointment. And boom, he is fighting for the Golden Boot once again.)
