Bet on Premier League, Here!

Every professional soccer player in the world will insist that collective prizes are what matters most, but individual prizes are also fiercely contested. While the Premier League title will remain the priority for the players listed below, each of them would also love to finish as the top scorer in the 2021/22 campaign.

Premier League 2021/22 Top Scorer Odds

Odds taken on May 9, 2022 from DraftKings Sportsbook

Premier League 2021/22 Top Scorer Odds
Mohamed Salah (Liverpool) -1000
Heung-Min Son (Tottenham Hotspur) +600
Cristiano Ronaldo (Manchester United) +5000
Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur) +10000
Diogo Jota (Liverpool) +10000
Sadio Mane (Liverpool) +10000

Harry Kane’s future is uncertain at the time of writing, but he is nevertheless the favorite to finish as Premier League top scorer this season. Whether he stays at Tottenham or joins Manchester City, Kane is as close as you can get to a guarantee of goals.

Mohamed Salah has been a prolific goalscorer ever since he joined Liverpool, and at generous odds of +400 he looks like a good value bet to win the prize in the 2021/22 season. Manchester City, Chelsea and Manchester United will all share the goals around, so it could be a head-to-head tussle between Kane and Salah this year.

Who is the Top Scorer Premier League 2020/21?

Harry Kane finished as the Premier League top scorer in 2020/21. The Tottenham talisman scored 23 goals and also provided the most assists throughout the season, becoming only the second player in Premier League history to lead the way for both goals and assists in a campaign (the other was Andrew Cole in 1993/94).

Kane finished one goal clear of Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah at the top of the charts. Bruno Fernandes, the Manchester United attacking midfielder, finished third with 18 goals.

Who is the All Time Premier League Top Scorer?

Player and Clubs Goals
Alan Shearer (Blackburn Rovers and Newcastle United) 260
Wayne Rooney (Everton and Manchester United) 208
Andrew Cole (Newcastle United, Manchester United, Blackburn Rovers, Fulham, Manchester City, Portsmouth) 187
Sergio Aguero (Manchester City) 184
Frank Lampard (West Ham United, Chelsea, Manchester City) 177
Thierry Henry (Arsenal) 175
Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur) 166
Robbie Fowler (Liverpool, Leeds United, Manchester City) 163
Jermain Defoe (West Ham United, Tottenham Hotspur, Portsmouth, Sunderland, Bournemouth) 162
Michael Owen (Liverpool, Newcastle United, Manchester United, Stoke City) 150

Alan Shearer is the all-time leading goalscorer in the Premier League, having scored 260 goals for Blackburn and Newcastle. The former England captain also scored 23 goals for Southampton in the First Division before it was rebranded as the Premier League.

Indeed, a different picture emerges when we also take the First Division era, from 1888 to 1992, into account alongside the 29 seasons of the Premier League. Top of the overall charts is Jimmy Greaves, who found the back of the net 357 times for Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United.

Who Has Finished as Premier League Top Scorer Most?

As you can see above, Harry Kane has finished as the Premier League’s top scorer in three different seasons. That leaves him tied in second place with Alan Shearer, who scored more goals than any other player in the division while playing for Blackburn Rovers in 1994/95 and 1995/96, and while representing Newcastle United in 1996/97. Shearer is one of only two players to win the prize three years in a row.

Arsenal legend Thierry Henry is the other – and he is the man who leads the way overall, having finished as the Premier League’s top scorer in four different seasons. Michael Owen, Mohamed Salah, Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, Didier Drogba and Robin van Persie have each done it twice.

When Is the Premier League Top Scorer Announced?

The Premier League top scorer is simply the player who has notched the most goals over the course of the season. The winner is only confirmed after each team has fulfilled all 38 of its fixtures, although the top scorer can often be predicted a few games before the end of the season if the player in first place has built up a healthy lead.

What Does the Premier League Top Scorer Receive?

The Premier League top scorer is also referred to as the ‘Golden Boot winner’. The award was founded in 1992 to mark the start of the Premier League, which was launched the same year.

Premier League top scorers receive a trophy that resembles a golden boot. They are also awarded £1000 per goal scored, with the proceeds given to a charity of the player’s choice.

Was the Premier League Called the Premiership?

The Premier League was called the Premiership for sponsorship reasons between 1993 and 2007. It has been known as the Premier League ever since.
