The Premier League rolling once again and bristling with attacking talents setting the top flight alight.
Last season’s Golden Boot award was split three ways by African trio Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
With 22 goals each, it was the lowest total to secure the award since Carlos Tevez and Dimitar Berbatov shared the honour with 20 goals after the 2010/11 campaign.
The title race will bring out the best in the top strikers once again, while several new additions to the Premier League could take the division by storm.

Before the season, RadioTimes.com said…
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – backed by attacking team-mates Alexandre Lacazette, Nicholas Pepe and Mesut Ozil – is arguably the top contender for the award.
Mohamed Salah will continue to battle at the top, though he will always be forced to share goals with Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino.
Sergio Aguero will lead the line for Manchester City again and can never be ruled out, while a 38-game Harry Kane is guaranteed to knock in at least 20 goals in a campaign.
Raheem Sterling‘s stunning form over the past season has pushed him up into the mix of top goalscorers.
Jamie Vardy is a reliable source of 15+ goals in a season and can expect another strong haul given Leicester’s improvements over the summer.
Lacazette and Mane may be marginally in the shadow of their elite attacking partners, but will be there or thereabouts among the top scorers.
Callum Wilson may have been the finest English striker in the Premier League last season. He’s improving year-on-year and will hope for another big goal haul.
Marcus Rashford could be deployed through the middle for the whole season at Manchester United, boosting his chances of a surge against the elite.
For a real wildcard option… dare we mention Olivier Giroud? The Chelsea man won the top scorer award for the Europa League last season, proving that if he starts, he can score. The Blues will turn to him to lead the line and could reap major rewards.
