Premier League top scorers continue to battle away for the Golden Boot in 2020/21, with three top contenders and a bristling chasing pack all in the mix.
Liverpool star Mohamed Salah leads the way despite his team’s drop-off in form, while Harry Kane’s goal at the weekend has nudged him ahead of teammate Son Heung Min for the first time this season.
Spurs enjoyed a return to goalscoring form at the weekend, but it will take a mighty effort for either of their main men to usurp Salah or Manchester United lynchpin Bruno Fernandes in the race for the individual gong.
The marathon has a long way to run, with many twists ahead, but who will ultimately lift the Premier League Golden Boot at the end of 2020/21?

Who will win the Premier League Golden Boot 2020/21?
At the halfway stage of the competition, the leaders were on course to rack up 26 goals to claim the Golden Boot.
For Salah and Fernandes, that is not an unreasonable target given their ability and form, particularly Salah’s despite Liverpool’s well-documented attacking woes.
It would take a mighty effort for injury-prone Kane or partner-in-crime Son to hit that figure given Spurs’ drop-off and Jose Mourinho’s stubbornly defensive setup.
Salah remains best-placed to pick up the individual award, but if his form slides in tandem with Liverpool’s we could witness a relatively low-scoring winner from one of the top eight contenders
Jamie Vardy, Calvert-Lewin and Patrick Bamford are all outside bets, but they’re the main men playing in teams with confidence and attacking swagger.
