There is clear daylight between the Chelsea star and the chasing pack, but the bookies believe Spurs' key striker will take the top scorer title

Eden Hazard extended his lead at the top of the Premier League scoring charts on Sunday afternoon with Chelsea's opener against Southampton at St Mary's - his seventh league goal of the season so far.

With the Belgian in fine form, punters may be tempted to back the midfield maestro to end the season at the top of the scoring charts at 11/2 (6.50) with SportPesa.

Missing the mark

Manchester City's Sergio Aguero and Tottenham Hotspur's Harry Kane both drew a blank at the weekend, against Liverpool and Cardiff City respectively.

Both men have managed five league goals so far this season and, given their prolific form in recent years, Aguero and Kane are likely to retain popularity with punters in this market.

The Argentina striker could represent good value at 3/1 (4.0) but it is Kane - top scorer in two of the last three seasons in this competition - who leads the market at  5/2 (3.50) .

Magical Murray and Mitrovic

Despite bagging five goals apiece in the Premier League this season, both Glenn Murray and Aleksandar Mitrovic can be backed at big prices to be the top scorer this term.

The Brighton and Hove Albion man is a 66/1 (67.0) chance, while the Fulham striker is a 33/1 (34.0) shot with SportPesa to claim the prize.

Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang enjoyed a fruitful weekend with two goals each, and can be backed at  14/1 (15.0) and 21/2 (11.50) respectively with SportPesa to be the Premier League's top scorer.

Liverpool duo

Sadio Mane has four league goals, while last season's top scorer, Mohamed Salah, has three.

Upcoming fixtures against Huddersfield Town and Cardiff City, though, should present both men with a good opportunity to add to their personal tallies and their current prices - 18/1 (19.0) and 7/1 (8.0) respectively - could plummet.
