Premier League top goal scorers 2021-2022: Updated golden boot rankings

Who can catch Mohamed Salah at the top of the Premier League scoring chart? That will be the theme for the rest of the 2021-22 season with the Egypt international already staked out to a five-goal lead over second place.

But January could be the month that sees others cut into his sizeable advantage with Salah departing to join Egypt for the Africa Cup of Nations tournament. If Egypt advances to the Feb. 6 AFCON final, it could mean a month’s absence for Salah and a chance for the pursuers to make a race of it.

Salah’s teammate, Diogo Jota (10 goals), should have a chance to add to his total for high-scoring Liverpool. The always goal-hungry Jamie Vardy (9 goals) could be a factor if his hamstring injury doesn’t cost him playing time. Son Heung-min’s production (8 goals) could be increasing with a resurgent Tottenham, and you can never count out Cristiano Ronaldo (8 goals) despite Manchester United’s ups and downs.

And in case you’re wondering, other popular names have work to do: Romelu Lukaku (Chelsea) has five goals and Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur) and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Arsenal) are both still stuck on four goals at the midway point of the season. Lukaku and Kane are both rounding into form, while Aubameyang is a potential transfer commodity this winter after falling out of favor with Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta due to disciplinary issues.

Below is the top scorer table with assists and minutes played serving as the first and second tiebreakers as per major European tournaments run by UEFA.
