Who will win the Premier League Golden Boot 2020-21? The favourites, outsiders, underdogs & latest odds

Jamie Vardy Golden Boot 2019-20
Jamie Vardy is the current holder of the individual goalscoring award and the Leicester striker is amongst the favourites to win it again

The Premier League Golden Boot is arguably the most prestigious of individual awards amongst forwards, with the award given to the player who scores the most goals in each season.

Jamie Vardy netted 23 times last season to scoop the award for the first time at the age of 33, staving off Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Danny Ings by a single goal.

Who are the favourites to win the Premier League Golden Boot?

Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah is 12/5 (3.40) favourite with bet365 to win the Premier League Golden Boot for the third time in his career.

The Egyptian previously scooped the award with 32 goals in 2017-18 and 22 the following season, and has 13 so far this time around after opening with a hat-trick against Leeds United on the first day of the season.

Harry Kane is 11/4 (3.75) to add to his pair of Golden Boots and the Tottenham hitman will be determined to make up for a pair of injury-hit seasons.

A recurring ankle problem means he has accumulated just 35 strikes across the last two terms, but he has started this campaign in good stead with 12 goals, including a brace at Manchester United.

Current holder Vardy is 9/2 (5.50) to retain the award, with the Leicester striker showing no signs of stopping despite approaching his 34th birthday.

His 23-goal haul last term helped Vardy into a select group of players who have scored a century of Premier League goals and he has already fired 11 goals in 2020-21, including three in a famous 5-2 win at Manchester City.

Who are the underdogs to win the Premier League Golden Boot?

Son Heung-min emerged as one of the early frontrunners for the Golden Boot after his four-goal haul against Southampton and the Tottenham man is priced at 15/2 (8.50).

His tally of 12 strikes so far has already beaten his tally from last season, and at the very least the Korean will be expecting to ease past his previous best of 14 goals in a Premier League season.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin can be backed at 14/1 (15.0) after a strong season in front of goal which has seen him score 11 times, including a hat-trick against West Brom.

The Everton striker has linked up with new signing James Rodriguez to form a fearsome trio alongside Richarlison, with the three propelling the Toffees into Champions League potential.

Having completely revitalised Manchester United last season, Bruno Fernandes has picked up where he left off and is 14/1 (15.0) to win the Golden Boot.

The Portuguese midfielder was signed from Sporting in January 2020 and has scored 11 goals this season, with five coming from the penalty spot.

Patrick Bamford was expected to struggle after his previous Premier League campaigns but is also 20/1 (21.0) to scoop the award.

This is the Leeds man's third season in the top-flight, each time with a different club, and his tally of 10 goals is going some way to proving his doubters wrong.

Who are the outsiders to win the Premier League Golden Boot?

Since joining Arsenal on January 31, 2018, only Salah and Vardy have scored more Premier League goals than Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and he is 25/1 (26.0) to win a second Golden Boot.

The Gabon international has struck 59 times in the league during his career with the Gunners and won a share of the individual award in his first full season at the club in 2018-19, although he only has five goals this season.

Available at 40/1 (41.0) is Sadio Mane, with the Liverpool forward coming off another notable campaign.

He shared the award with Salah and Aubameyang in 2018-19, and racked up 18 goals last season, but has struggled for consistency this term with only six goals to his name.

Man United forward Marcus Rashford hit a career-best 17 strikes last season and is priced at 40/1 (41.0).

Although his tally of seven this term is still some way behind the leaders, the Red Devils' extremely strong attack should provide Rashford with plenty of opportunities to score.
