Tammy Abraham is joint top Premier League scorer with Sergio Aguero. Max Liu ponders if bettors wrong to make the Argentine a much shorter price than the England man?

"Salah [8.2] and Mane [11.5] are both performing well with four and five respectively for a Liverpool team that's [1.77] for the title after they continued their 100% start at the weekend."

Tammy Abraham is into to [8.8] to finish the season as the Premier League's top goalscorer after he netted his eighth of the season in Chelsea 4-1 win over Southampton.

The 22-year-old, who's currently on England duty ahead of Friday's Euro 2020 qualifier against the Czech Republic, has made a stunning start to the season and is enjoying playing under Frank Lampard's management.

Abraham is the top flight's joint top scorer with Sergio Aguero [4.4]. The Manchester City forward won the Golden Boot in 2015 but, in part due to Pep Guardiola's tendency to rest him in some matches, hasn't managed to take the title since.

Bettors are more confident that Aguero will sustain his scoring form. At 31, though, he's a full nine years older than Abraham so perhaps the younger man will finish the season sharper and upset the odds.

Don't rule out last season's joint winners...

Last term, the Golden Boot was split three ways, with Sadio Mane, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Mohamed Salah finishing joint top with 22 each. This time, it's Aubameyang [5.6] who's made the quickest start to the season, notching seven so far for Arsenal.

Salah [8.2] and Mane [11.5] are both performing well with four and five respectively for a Liverpool team that's [1.77] for the title after they continued their 100% start at the weekend.

Or other usual suspects...


Then of course there's Harry Kane [7.8] who's got five even though his Tottenham team are struggling. The England captain will always score goals and tends to improve as the season goes on, as long as he stays fit.

Jamie Vardy [21.0], who is thriving under Brendan Rodgers management at Leicester, also has five goals. If Leicester are to achieve what would be a stunning top four finish [4.2] then their talisman's goals will need to keep coming.

Can Pukki keep it up?

Last month, Norwich achieved an extraordinary result when beating Manchester City 3-2 at Carrow Road. Teemu Pukki got the winner that day and the Finnish striker has been a pleasure to watch this season. With six goals, he's outscored some of the big names mentioned above and is only two off the lead.

Pukki is trading at [40.0], though, and that's down to the form of his team who have lost three on the trot since the City match. They're [1.88] to be relegated and, if they're to avoid that, they'll need Pukki to keep on scoring.
