It’s just been slightly more than 6 weeks since the ball was last kicked in the Premier League. However, ask a football fan and he will tell you that those 8 weeks feels no less than years. That game, played between Leicester City and Aston Villa on March 7, helped the Foxes star Jamie Vardy end his 7-game goal drought with a brace and took him to the top of the goal scorers chart for the Premier league this season.

His 18th and 19th goal of the Premier League 2019-20, helped him break free of his familiar rivals but just when things seemed to spice up, a pandemic, literally, hit the world and the game had to take the back seat, rightly so, as the focus shifted on people’s health.

But with positive signs coming from the footballing world, and a glimmer of hope that the season can restart sooner than later, it’s the perfect time to take a loot at how the race for the Premier League Golden Boot is shaping up.

The Leicester City striker is the only player who has already improved his last season’s tally. Despite being on the wrong side of the age, he has hit 19 goals, 1 more than he managed overall last season.

He has scored 19 goals in 26 appearances this season, leading the Premier League 2019-20 top scorers chart. This has taken his Premier League tally to 99 goals. However, he will have to wait a bit longer than he expected to get to his century.

2. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – 17 goals

The Arsenal star failed to score in his last game, when the Gunners beat West Ham United 1-0. However, the last time, he touched the ball – 3 days before Leicester’s game, he was joint top.

The Gabon international has scored 17 goals in 26 games and is well on course to match his last season’s tally of 22 goals, which helped him jointly top the chart. He is placed 2nd in the Premier League 2019-20 top scorers

3. Sergio Aguero – 16 goals

No surprises here. The Manchester United City striker has been a constant threat in front of the goal. With 20 or more goals in last 5 successive season, he has stamped his authority as the deadliest striker in the league.

He has scored 16 goals so far this season despite making just 22 appearances, 5 of them from the substitution bench. It’s surprising how it has been almost 5 years since he last won the Golden Boot. However, he is well on course for it, after missing with just 1 goal last year.

4. Mohamed Salah – 16 goals

The Man from Egypt can join an elite list of players to be the top scorer for 3 successive seasons. After finishing with 22 goals last season, join most with Sadio Mane and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Salah is again in the list this time.

Despite claims he has been slightly ‘off-colour’, the Liverpool star has scored 16 goals and is just 3 goals behind the top spot. Moreover, he is just 6 behind his last season’s tally of 22, which was a huge drop from 32 goals he scored a season before.

5. Danny Ings – 15 goals

This is a surprise. The Southampton forward has scored 15 goals. It’s already a huge improvement from the last season when he scored only 7 goals. So, anything he scores hereafter is just a bonus.

It’s his goals that have kept Southampton safe from relegation at the moment. He is fifth in the Premier League 2019-20 top scorers chart.
