Assessing who will be the Premier League Top Scorer

Erling Braut Haaland wrote his name into the Premier League history books in 2022/23 after winning the Golden Boot with a new single-season record of 36 goals.

The Manchester City striker is the heavy favourite to take top spot again in 2024 since his main attacking rival Harry Kane left Tottenham for Bayern Munich. However, there are a number of players gunning to take Haaland's crown and this article will assess the favourites.

Twisting Erling Braut Haaland

Haaland is again leading the way in the goalscoring charts and will be backed by many football fans placing wagers via Malawi Bet after netting 14 times in 13 games for Pep Guardiola's side

The Norway international exudes confidence every time he takes to the field and has scored against rivals Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea already this campaign.

Mohamed Salah

The Egyptian has scored 147 Premier League goals for Liverpool, netting 10 in this, his seventh season at Anfield. Already a legend with the Reds, Salah clinched the top scorer prize in 2018, 2019 and 2022 and supporters wagering via malawi bet will fancy the Liverpool star to challenge Haaland in the standings.

Jurgen Klopp's side are pushing City for the title this campaign and any success will be built on Salah's scoring exploits at home and away.

Son Heung-Min

Tottenham attacker Son Heung-Min has taken on extra attacking responsibility since Kane's exit to the Bundesliga and has delivered more than one goal every two games so far.

The South Korea international is another player in the Premier League 100 club and continues to impress for Spurs with many fans via malawi bet backing him to score weekly. Son combines stunning movement with pace, trickery and brilliant accuracy. If the forward is played in and only has the goalkeeper to beat, there is often only one winner in that situation.

Alexander Isak

Newcastle have been flying high this season and last, but have impressed in Europe more than they have domestically this time around. However, despite enduring stuttering form in the Premier League, Isak has still found goals easy to come by, hitting seven before December and fans wagering at malawi bet will see him as a strong option to back.

Netting braces against West Ham and Aston Villa already this campaign, Isak's movement is one of his key strengths and the Swede is often in the right place at the right time, often finding the ball land perfectly to strike home.

Aston Villa's Ollie Watkins

England striker Watkins has spearheaded Aston Villa's climb up the table under manager Unai Emery. The former Brentford forward scored the important winner at Tottenham, netted the crucial goal in the victory over Fulham and was also the hat-trick hero in Villa's emphatic 6-1 triumph over Brighton.

Though he may trail Haaland by seven goals, his integral role for Villa will see him handed plenty more scoring opportunities and he has already shown he is capable of netting three times in one game so could be a great shout via malawi bet as an outside wager.

Evan Ferguson

Brighton forward Ferguson has established himself as a regular in the Premier League scoring charts despite being only 18 years of age when the season started in August. The Ireland attacker has scored six times including a hat-trick against Newcastle and has been tipped to have a bright future in the game.

A sublime finisher, Ferguson is an excellent penalty box striker. This campaign may have come too soon for him to be the overall top scorer, but he has all of the capabilities to be the main Premier League goal-getter in years to come.

Summing Up

Erling Haaland is a supreme goalscorer and the massive favourite to finish the season top of the charts but there are a number of strikers who have the talent in front of goal to push him all the way. Football bettors wagering via malawi bet will be interested to see which players net during the festive period as the top scorer picture becomes clearer.
