Having have broken the Premier League record for most goals scored in a single season, Mohammed Salah will be out prove he is no flash in the pan this campaign.

The Liverpool star struck 32 times in a scintillating debut campaign, leaving Harry Kane in second place on 30 and depriving him of a third consecutive Golden Boot.

However, the Tottenham striker’s more established track record makes his bet365’s 5/2 (3.50) favourite to claw back the top scorer mantle, with Salah priced at a lengthier 5/1 (6.00).

When it comes to track records, only Jermaine Defoe has scored more Premier League goals than Sergio Aguero out of current players, and the Argentina international’s 143 have come from just 201 appearances – the best ratio in the league’s history.

After scoring 21 times in just 25 appearances last season, it is easy to see him outscoring both Salah and Kane should he enjoy more playing time this campaign – a bet you can back at generous 6/1 (7.00) odds.

Similarly, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang hit the net 10 times in just 13 matches after joining Arsenal in January, so could offer strong value at 13/2 (7.50) over the course of an entire season.

Romelu Lukaku struck a relatively modest 16 league goals in his debut season for Manchester United team, and Jose Mourinho’s more defensively-minded approach makes him a less appealing punt at 8/1 (9.00).

Indeed, Gabriel Jesus managed 13 goals despite starting 14 games fewer than Lukaku in an injury-hit campaign, so probably holds more temptation than his Manchester rival at 14/1 (15.00) odds.

Although overshadowed by Salah and Aubameyang respectively at their clubs, Roberto Firmino and Alexandre Lacazette are more than capable of making their own 25/1 (26.00) price look excessively generous – particularly in the each way stakes.

Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
