Lukaku, Kane Salah – Who will win the 2021/22 Premier League Golden boot?

Romelu Lukaku-Inter Milan

The Premier League kicks off on Friday, and the top players will be looking to make their mark in the competition once again.

They will be looking to guide their respective teams to domestic glory this year, but they will also be focused on shattering the scoring records.

The likes of Harry Kane, Mohamed Salah and Romelu Lukaku have been extremely consistent with their goal scoring over the past few seasons, and it will be interesting to see who comes out on top this time around.

Harry Kane managed to win the Premier League Golden boot with 23 goals last season, and he will be desperate to replicate his feat once again.

The player has recently been linked with a move to Manchester City, and a move to Etihad could increase his chances of winning the Golden boot. He will have a lot of creative support at City as compared to Tottenham.

Meanwhile, Mohamed Salah narrowly missed out on the Premier League Golden Boot last season after scoring 22 goals, and the Egyptian will be desperate to reclaim his crown.

Salah has been in breathtaking form since joining Liverpool, and he has already won the Golden boot twice with the Reds.

On the other hand, Chelsea have managed to bring Romelu Lukaku back to the club the summer, and the Belgian will be playing with a chip on his shoulder.

He failed to prove himself at Stamford Bridge during his previous spell at the club, and Lukaku will be desperate to make his mark at the London club this time around.

The Belgian scored 24 goals in the Italian league last season, and he helped his side win the title.

In theory, all three players are capable of winning the Premier League Golden boot next season, but Lukaku is probably the best placed to secure the accolade.

He is set to lead the line for Chelsea next season, and Thomas Tuchel’s set-up could bring out the best in him.

Chelsea managed to create plenty of chances for the likes of Timo Werner last season, but the German failed to take advantage of those opportunities.

Someone like Lukaku is a much more clinical presence upfront, and the Belgian could score freely for the Blues.

As far as Kane and Salah are considered, they will be playing for clubs with weaker midfield/creative options. Also, both players tend to focus on the creative side of their game, and they are not specialist poachers like the Belgian.

Some other players who could stake a claim for the Golden boot are Jamie Vardy, Danny Ings, Sadio Mane, Bruno Fernandes and Son Heung-Min.
