PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! The new Premier League season is upon us, and that means the predictions are coming in thick and fast.Will Liverpool topple Manchester City? Which newly-promoted side has the best chance of staying up? Are Newcastle ready to break up the Big Six?As ever, there are plenty of questions that cannot be answered yet, and here we are concerned with all things Golden Boot.Mohamed Salah and Son Heung-min shared the award last season, but it is Manchester City’s new No 9 who is being backed by the bookmakers.More on Premier LeagueWhy 'sensible' Howe is more important to Newcastle this Premier League season than Saudi cash05 August, 2022Man Utd's woeful transfer window has left Erik ten Hag's revolution dependent on dead wood05 August, 2022i's guide to the first weekend of the Premier League season - including every game on TV05 August, 2022Here, we dare to rate the chances of the bookies’ top 10 contenders, and ask that you kindly forget to bookmark this page, and that you definitely do not think about resurfacing this article in May – unless it’s right…Erling HaalandPremier League newbies rarely win the Golden Boot. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang shared the award in his first full season at Arsenal in 2018-19, having joined the January prior, while Kevin Phillips goes down as the last player to top the standings in their debut campaign when scoring 30 for Sunderland in 1999/2000.The talk is therefore that players moving from abroad take a while to adapt to life in the Premier League. Thierry Henry, Didier Drogba, Robin van Persie and Mohamed Salah all went on to become multiple Golden Boot winners, of course, but there is every reason to believe that Haaland is wired differently and could easily hit the ground running as Manchester City’s focal point in attack this season.He may be new, but he’s the man to beat.Golden Boot chances: 9/10Mohamed SalahSharing the limelight with Sadio Mane never did Salah’s Golden Boot prospects any harm, with the Egyptian winning the award three times in the past five seasons, but the departure of Mane and arrival of Darwin Nunez throws in a level of uncertainty at Liverpool.That does not mean there won’t be goals, but rather it is difficult to confidently predict how they will be shared out. Fitness permitting, and without a World Cup to add to his workload, Salah should still finish the season as Liverpool’s top scorer – but whether that would be enough to topple Haaland is another matter entirely.Golden Boot chances: 7/10Related StoriesPL predictions: City vs Liverpool too close to call, joy for Arsenal and Man Utd a mystery04 August, 2022Liverpool predictions 2022-23: Nunez and Salah are magic but this team still looks second-best03 August, 2022Harry KaneHe’s coming for you, Son Heung-min. After seven straight seasons as Tottenham’s top Premier League goalscorer, Harry Kane was deposed by Son in 2021-22 – but don’t expect that to become a regular occurrence.Kane is on 183 Premier League goals heading into the new campaign, and the three-time Golden Boot winner has the 200-mark in his sights this season. Requiring 17 to become just the third player to do so (after Alan Shearer 260 and Wayne Rooney 208), Kane could use this milestone as motivation to take the crown back from Son and join Henry on four Golden Boots. Golden Boot chances: 8/10Gabriel JesusAway from the Manchester City bench and into the Arsenal starting line-up as their first-choice No 9. That was why Gabriel Jesus made the switch, and after a fruitful pre-season the Brazilian has emerged as a top contender for the Golden Boot.His Premier League best is 14 goals in 2019-20, but a 20-goal haul does not look beyond him.

.Golden Boot chances: 8/10Related StoriesGabriel Jesus can help Arsenal crack the top four in Arteta's judgement year03 August, 2022Son Heung-minAfter sharing last season’s Golden Boot with Salah, the challenge for Son Heung-min is to repeat the feat. That would be some going, especially with Kane as his team-mate and Richarlison joining the fold at Spurs as well.We don’t expect Son’s numbers to drop drastically, but with the names around him, topping the list would be even more remarkable the second time around.Golden Boot chances: 4/10Darwin NunezFor all the Haaland comparisons, it could be Salah that gets in between Darwin Nunez and a prolific first year at Liverpool, but 26 league goals for Benfica last season and a confidence-boosting Community Shield goal against Manchester City will tell you that the Uruguayan is up for the fight.The Golden Boot in his debut campaign seems far-fetched, but anything above the 15-mark would be impressive, particularly as two more team-mates join him and Salah in the bookmakers’ top 10.Golden Boot chances: 5/10Related StoriesLiverpool predictions 2022-23: Nunez and Salah are magic but this team still looks second-best03 August, 2022Cristiano RonaldoProviding he remains a Manchester United player beyond the summer transfer window, then Cristiano Ronaldo must always be classed as a Golden Boot contender. His tally of 18 was five shy of Salah and Son last season, and if Erik ten Hag can get United ticking then Ronaldo is perfectly capable of adding five to 10 goals on top of his 2021-22 haul.He is the big “if” of the top 10 given the uncertainty around his future, but with Anthony Martial currently out injured, Ten Hag could turn to Ronaldo and swiftly forget about that half-time Old Trafford departure if he starts the season in the right mood.Golden Boot chances: 6/10Related StoriesTen Hag furious with Ronaldo's 'negative influence' on youngsters but Man Utd cannot find buyer03 August, 2022Man Utd's silence and Ronaldo's early exit from Rayo friendly are ominous signs for his future01 August, 2022 Premier League Golden Boot winner odds 2022-23 Odds from Betfair correct at time of writing on 5 August: Erling Haaland: 13-5Mohamed Salah: 9-2Harry Kane: 5-1Gabriel Jesus: 11-1Son Heung-min: 13-1Darwin Nunez: 13-1Cristiano Ronaldo: 17-1Raheem Sterling: 22-1Luis Diaz: 25-1Jamie Vardy: 33-1Diogo Jota: 33-1Raheem SterlingThis time 12 months ago Romelu Lukaku was being talked about as the missing link for Chelsea’s title-winning prospects under Thomas Tuchel. For several reasons, that didn’t quite work out, and with Lukaku now back at Inter, the onus falls on Raheem Sterling – fresh from his move down south.Sterling heads into the new season with 109 Premier League goals to his name from his time at Liverpool and Manchester City, while his best single-season league tally is 20 back in 2019-20 – he would likely have to surpass that to have any chance of claiming the Golden Boot.Golden Boot chances: 4/10Related StoriesHow Chelsea could line-up next season, with Sterling's versatility and Koulibaly in defence14 July, 2022Luis DiazAnother stellar January signing from Liverpool, Luis Diaz propelled his side into Premier League contention before they fell just short in the race with Manchester City.The Colombian scored four goals in 13 Premier League appearances after joining, and would need a marked improvement on that ratio to trouble team-mate Salah and leading contenders Kane, Haaland and Jesus.Golden Boot chances: 3/10Jamie VardyOne of the most consistent strikers going in the Premier League, 35-year-old Jamie Vardy scored 15 or more top-flight goals for the past five seasons – reaching 15 in just 25 appearances in 2021-22.Providing he stays fit, he has every chance of surpassing the 20-mark for the fourth time, and Leicester will certainly hope that is the case in their pursuit of European football.Golden Boot chances: 5/10Diogo JotaRoom for another? The fourth Liverpool forward to make this top 10 is Diogo Jota, and his long odds rightly represent his Golden Boot chances, as he would have to outscore Salah and oust Nunez from the starting line-up.So yes, I’ve dared to go with one out of 10 – DM me in May…Golden Boot chances: 1/10
