Below are some of the best forwards currently playing in the league as well as some of the goalscorers favourites and teams that are most likely to win the league this season.

Now that we’ve got our favourites for the Golden Boot and the PL title, let’s head over to the best forwards list.

Mohamed Salah

The Egyptian king was rated as a one-season-wonder when he came to Liverpool and had a successful debut season with the club. Three years later, he is still dominating every opponent and smashing defences. He is also one of the favourites to win the Golden Boot.

Sadio Mane

Salah’s loyal attacking partner shared last year’s Golden Boot with him and Aubameyang. This season, he is looking strong and motivated to be the top scorer in the league. Mane is showing no signs of slowing down and presents big trouble for every club’s defence.

Sergio Aguero

City’s dominant attacker is determined to be the best in the league. Aguero is one of the most consistent attackers in the world. He’s scored 25-plus goals in each of the last six seasons. This season will be no different as he has eight goals in just six matches so far.

Harry Kane

Harry Kane is on the path to become the best English striker in history. He is leading Spurs in every game, scoring multiple goals every time he gets the ball. Kane is a calm, dedicated player whose values lie with his family and the love for the game.

Teemu Pukki

Pukki is the target of numerous critics who say that he might be the biggest surprise this season. He had an amazing year with Norwich by scoring 30 goals in 46 games and this season is looking no different. It will surely be interesting to watch him progress in the league.
