GOAL brings you all this season's leading marksmen from England's top division - who will come out on top?

The race is once again on for a coveted Premier League Golden Boot, with established superstars being joined by big-money summer signings in a battle to be crowned the English top-flight's leading goal scorer.

Erling Haaland and Darwin Nunez, fresh from moves to Manchester City and Liverpool respectively, are among those to have added their particular skill sets to a collection of world-class forwards that already includes the likes of Tottenham striker Harry Kane and Anfield talisman Mohamed Salah.

With nets set to bulge on a regular basis throughout the 2022-23 campaign, GOAL is on hand to monitor the exploits of the most prolific marksmen around.

  • Erling Haaland Manchester City 2022-23

    #1 Erling Haaland | Manchester City | 18 goals

    A move to England for Erling Haaland always felt like being a matter of time, and Manchester City won that particular transfer lottery in 2022. The prolific Norwegian could be the bargain of the season at £51 million, with his track record suggesting that he will have rival defenders running scared.

  • Harry Kane Tottenham 2022-23

    #2 Harry Kane | Tottenham | 12 goals

    A man that already has three Golden Boots to his name, Tottenham frontman Harry Kane certainly knows his way to the back of the net. The England captain has a World Cup to think about this season, but he will not allow anything to distract him from the pursuit of more goals at club level.

  • Ivan Toney Brentford 2022

    #3 Ivan Toney | Brentford | 10 goals

    Having hit 33 goals when helping Brentford to promotion into the Premier League, Ivan Toney backed that return up with 14 efforts last season. The powerful Bees striker is a handful for any defender in the air and on the deck, while he is also more than useful at penalties.

  • Aleksandar Mitrovic Fulham 2022-23

    #4 Aleksandar Mitrovic | Fulham | 9 goals

    Fulham No.9 Aleksandar Mitrovic re-wrote Football League history books last season when hitting 43 goals. His record at the very highest level has been questioned during previous stints in the Premier League, but the Serbia international is determined to silence any doubters.

  • Rodrigo Leeds 2022-23

    #5 Rodrigo | Leeds | 9 goals

    Spain international Rodrigo is yet to repay the sizeable show of faith made in him by Leeds, with only 13 goals recorded across two seasons at Elland Road. He is, however, a capable marksman and his work rate often helps others to flourish around him.

  • Miguel Almiron Newcastle 2022-23

    #6 Miguel Almiron | Newcastle | 8 goals

    Paraguyan attacker Miguel Almiron has undergone a renaissance since Eddie Howe was appointed last season. He has become an importnat part of the Newcastle side that has only lost one game so far this season, as well as making a mockery of Jack Grealish's derogatory jibe in Man City's title celebrations last term.

  • foden

    #7 Phil Foden | Manchester City | 7 goals

    Manchester City star Phil Foden appeared in 28 Premier League matches last season where he scored three goals. The English international will hope to better his goal-scoring record this time around.

  • Leandro Trossard Brighton 2022-23

    #8 Leandro Trossard | Brighton | 7 goals

    Belgian forward Leandro Trossard has been a consistent performer for Brighton across his time in England. He can always be relied upon to chip in with a useful tally of goals.

  • Roberto Firmino Liverpool 2022

    #9 Roberto Firmino | Liverpool | 7 goals

    After Sadio Mane's departure in the summer of 2022, Roberto Firmino - along with Mohamed Salah - will have to shoulder the responsibility of taking Liverpool forward this season. He is accustomed to doing just that and has reached 100 goals for the Reds.

  • James Maddison Leicester 2022-23

    #10 James Maddison | Leicester | 7 goals

    James Maddison appears to have slipped down the playmaking pecking order for England, but the Leicester talisman could still force his way into that picture before the 2022 World Cup. He remains a key man for the Foxes due to his passing ability and skill over set-pieces.

  • Mohamed Salah Liverpool 2022-23

    #11 Mohamed Salah | Liverpool | 6 goals

    Liverpool superstar Mohamed Salah secured himself a third Golden Boot last season – a second that has been shared with others – and more of the same is expected from him this term. With a new contract under his belt, the Egyptian forward appears set to remain the King of Anfield.

  • Wilfried Zaha Crystal Palace 2022-23

    #12 Wilfried Zaha | Crystal Palace | 6 goals

    Wilfried Zaha remains the go-to man for Crystal Palace when they are in need of attacking inspiration. The Ivory Coast international winger is integral to the Eagles’ plans due to his creativity and ability to provide assists, but he also knows his way to the back of the net.

  • Callum Wilson Newcastle 2022-23

    #13 Callum Wilson | Newcastle | 6 goals

    Staying fit has proved to be an issue for Newcastle striker Callum Wilson, but there is no doubting his finishing ability when fully firing. The Magpies will be desperate to see him steer clear of the treatment table this season as they look to deliver on the ambition of wealthy owners.

  • Martin Odegaard Arsenal 2022-23

    #14 Martin Odegaard | Arsenal | 6 goals

    Martin Odegaard has taken on the captaincy at Arsenal in 2022-23, with a midfielder that already occupies the armband with Norway now an on-field leader for club and country.

  • Harvey Barnes Leicester 2020-21

    #15 Harvey Barnes| Leicester | 6 goals

    Amidst Leicester City's dismal start to the season, winger Harvey Barnes has been a bright spot.

Leicester will be hoping Barnes remains injury-free and consistent to get them out of their current rut.

  • Gabriel Jesus Arsenal Leicester City 2022-23

    #16 Gabriel Jesus | Arsenal | 5 goals

    Gabriel Jesus collected four Premier League titles across five-and-a-half years at Manchester City, with Arsenal acquiring themselves a proven winner. The Brazil international is expected to flourish when being allowed to fill a favoured No.9 role on a regular basis.

  • Darwin Nunez Liverpool West Ham 2022-23

    #17 Darwin Nunez | Liverpool | 5 goals

    Liverpool's big money signing hasn't hit the ground running but has seemed threatening every time he is on the pitch. He is currently on three goals for the season, and getting up to speed. The Uruguayan recorded the fastest top speed in the Premier League this season, 36.5 km/h against Fulham.

  • Gabriel Martinelli Arsenal 2022-23

    #18 Gabriel Martinelli | Arsenal | 5 goals

    Gabriel Martinelli has been patiently waiting on an opportunity to prove his worth at Arsenal after bursting onto the scene back in 2019-20. The Brazil international boasts quick feet and a keen eye for goal that should stand him in good stead now that regular game time is being enjoyed.

  • Pascal Gross Brighton 2022-23

    #19 Pascal Gross | Brighton | 5 goals

    German midfielder Pascal Gross has been a model of consistency for Brighton across his five seasons with the Seagulls. His ability has never been in question, with admiring glances attracted from afar, but he will feel that more goals can be added to his game.

  • Alexis Mac Allister Brighton 2022-23

    #20 Alexis Mac Allister | Brighton | 5 goals

    Alexis Mac Allister is not the most talked about Premier League midfielder, but there is plenty to like about the diminutive Argentine with Scottish and Irish heritage. Technical sound with an eye for a pass, he will be key if Brighton are to build on their successful 2021-22 season this time out.

  • Danny Ings Aston Villa 2021-22

    #21 Danny Ings | Aston Villa | 5 goals

    Ings, 30, has a slow burner start to his Aston Villa career owing to niggling injuries and lack of form, with only 7 Premier League goals last season. He has had a difficult start to ongoing season, but he is steadily coming back at his predatory best and back among the goals. There are few better inside the box.

    Bukaryo Saka seems to be hitting form in front of goal now. The England international has four goals and four assists to his name after 10 Premier League games.

    #23 Marcus Rashford | Manchester United | 4 goals

    Marcus Rashford endured a disappointing season in 2021-22, with only five goals recorded in all competitions, and he is looking to rediscover a spark. Regular outings as a central striker for Manchester United should aid that cause.

  • #24 Crysencio Summerville | Leeds United | 4 goals

    Summerville, 21, has been a breakout star for Leeds United this season. The young Dutchman has shown he has a penchant for creating clutch moments, scoring a shock 90th-minute winner over Liverpool, followed by another late winner in a thrilling 4-3 victory over Bournemouth.

  • Rodrigo Bentancur Tottenham Leeds

    #25 Rodrigo Bentancur | Tottenham Hotspur | 4 goals

  • Che Adams Southampton 2022-23

    #27 Che Adams | Southampton | 4 goals

    Scotland international Che Adams is yet to break into double figures across any given season as a Premier League frontman, and that is something the Southampton star will want to put right. His tireless running means he is worth much more than goals, though, to the Saints.

  • Son Heung-min

    #28 Son Heung-Min | Tottenham | 3 goals

    South Korea star Son Heung-Min enjoyed a fantastic 2021-22 campaign, scoring 23 goals to share the Golden Boot award with Liverpool counterpart Mohamed Salah.

    #29 Luis Diaz | Liverpool | 3 goals

  • Raheem Sterling Chelsea Leicester 2022-23

    #30 Raheem Sterling | Chelsea | 3 goals

  • Antony Manchester United 2022

    #32 Antony | Manchester United | 3 goals

  • Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg Tottenham 2022-23

    #33 Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg | Tottenham | 3 goals

  • #34 Anthony Gordon | Everton | 3 goals

    Anthony Gordon enjoyed a breakout 2021-22 Premier League season, providing Everton fans with some much-needed hope in an otherwise dire campaign. He will be even more vital for the Toffees this time out, and expect him to considerably improve his goal tally.
