All three forwards have reached double figures and there is little separating them in the latest top scorer odds ahead of a packed Christmas period

A flurry of goals on the final weekend before Christmas Day has revealed four clear frontrunners in the Premier League top scorer race.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored a brace against Burnley to end a three-match run without a goal, propelling him to the top of the charts with 12 strikes and making him 7/2 (4.50) with William Hill to win the Golden Boot.

The Arsenal forward could be on track to win the award in his first full season but faces tough competition from two-time winner Harry Kane, who is 5/2 (3.50) favourite.

Kane struck twice as Tottenham thrashed Everton 6-2 at Goodison Park to move onto 11 goals but will fancy his chances of increasing that tally on Boxing Day when Bournemouth visit Wembley.

He has six goals in five Premier League appearances against the Cherries and more strikes on Wednesday will see the England captain stake a claim for a hat-trick of Golden Boots after being usurped by Mohamed Salah last season.

With 11 goals too, Salah could certainly prove to be the scourge of Kane despite the Egyptian supposedly starting the season slowly. However, those doubts seem firmly put to bed after four goals in his last three games.

The Liverpool man recorded a goal and an assist as the Reds beat Wolves 2-0 on Friday night, and is available at 3/1 (4.0) after scoring his 43rd strike in just 54 league games for Jurgen Klopp’s side.

Despite playing just 40 minutes in December so far, William Hill price Sergio Aguero at 6/1 (7.0) but that looks a little short considering he has just eight goals to his name.

Considering he will likely share striking duties with Gabriel Jesus, even such a formidable striker in Aguero seems unlikely to trouble the top three - especially if City progress in the Champions League and the FA Cup.
