Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang moved into a share of first place in the Premier League Golden Boot race after netting his eighth goal of the season at Bournemouth on Sunday.

The Arsenal striker scored the winner at the Vitality Stadium and is 7/1 (8.0) with bet365 to claim the coveted award, although that puts him some way behind favourite Sergio Aguero at 5/2 (3.50) despite them both having eight goals.

Aguero failed to get on the scoresheet in Manchester City’s 4-0 drubbing of West Ham and only narrowly leads 11/4 (3.75) Harry Kane in the betting after the Tottenham man scored his seventh of the season on Saturday evening.

Two-time winner Kane has scored at least 25 goals in each of the last three seasons and looks set for another fruitful campaign in front of goal following this solid start.

Incumbent champion Mohamed Salah appears to have found the scoring touch that deserted him for the first two months of the campaign, with the Egyptian netting for the seventh time in Liverpool’s 3-0 win at Watford.

That goal makes it four goals in his last five Premier League outings and bet365 make him 5/1 (6.0) to retain his crown, just ahead of Aubameyang despite having one goal fewer than the Gunners man.

If Salah has found his shooting boots then 10/1 (11.0) Eden Hazard has most certainly lost his, with the Chelsea star failing to score in each of his last four league games after racing to seven goals inside eight games.

Also on seven goals is Raheem Sterling, who found the net against West Ham but is still priced at 25/1 (26.0), the same as Alexandre Lacazette (five goals) and Sadio Mane (six goals).

Aleksandar Mitrovic moved onto seven strikes with a double for Fulham on Saturday, but can be found at 50/1 (51.0), some way ahead of 66/1 (67.0) Glenn Murray despite the Brighton man sitting on the same amount.
