Premier League Goal Leaders 2023-2024: Who Will Win the Golden Boot? Haaland has company this season

Who is chasing Erling Haaland for the Premier League Golden Boot?

Haaland missed a lot of time due to a troublesome ankle injurymaking the list of potential winners grow as the season moves deeper into its thick second half.

A run of two goalless starts in the Premier League opened the door a little, but Haaland scored two goals in April to reach 20 for the second Premier League season in a row. However, the Golden Boot lead had evaporated when Cole Palmer left four goals behind against Everton in week 33 to move level with the re-injured Haaland. Newcastle’s Alexander Isak has also scored 20 goals since then.

That came after Haaland returned from the bench in week 35 at Nottingham Forest to score his league-best 21st, regaining sole possession of top spot. He then scored Nos. 22, 23, 24 and 25 against Wolves in Week 36.

Ollie Watkins has 19 this season and the Aston Villa forward has recorded 12 assists, the most in the Premier League, to continue his incredible season.

Who else is in the running?

For a while it was a wide open fight for the right to become the Premier League’s Golden Boot winner for the 2023-2024 season. Mohamed Salah has seventeen. Phil Foden, Heung-min Son, Bukayo Saka and Jarrod Bowen all have sixteen.

Next are Chris Wood, Hee-chan Hwang and Kai Havertz with 12, followed by Darwin Nunez, Nicolas Jackson, Leandro Trossard, Jean-Philippe Mateta and Matheus Cunha with 11. Eight more players have scored double-digit goals.

It’s fair to say that Haaland has a lot more competition this season, even with Harry Kane in Germany (and overtaking Haaland for Europe’s Golden Boot). Haaland won the 2022/23 Golden Boot with Manchester City when he scored 36 goals to set a new Premier League single-season record, and he will look to do that again this season.

These are the top scorers as we enter the final part of the 2023-2024 Premier League season.

Is there a tiebreaker for the Golden Boot?

No, if multiple players finish tied on the Golden Boot leaderboard, they will share the prizes.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah all scored 22 goals in the 2018/19 season, while Carlos Tevez and Dimitar Berbatov shared the honors with 20 goals in 2010/11.

Michael Owen was part of back-to-back Golden Boot shares, splitting with Chris Sutton and Dion Dublin in 1997-98 and Dwight Yorke and Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink the following season.
