Aguero, Jesus and Morata put Golden Boot pressure on Kane and Lukaku

| 06.11.2017

Harry Kane and Romelu Lukaku’s personal duel for the Premier League Golden Boot could be over.

After a blistering September the respective Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United strikers looked set to dominate the goal charts.

But the duo have been caught in recent weeks.

Kane remains 13/8 favourite to win the accolade, but the Englishman has been joined on eight goals by Sergio Aguero.

Manchester City’s hotshot Argentine has netted seven goals in his last seven league games.

And his odds have come tumbling accordingly. Aguero is now 7/2 second favourite in the betting from 8/1 a month ago, leapfrogging Lukaku in the process.

The Belgian is suffering a minor drought at the minute, after a scintillating start to life at Manchester United.

Lukaku hasn’t netted for the Red Devils since the end of September, drawing a blank in his last four league games. His odds have drifted from 12/5 to 9/2.

He’s been joined on seven goals by a quartet of players in much greater form.

Gabriel Jesus is in from 7/1 to 6/1 to be top scorer this season.

The Brazilian hit a double in Man City’s 7-2 victory over Stoke City, before netting in Sunday’s 3-1 win over Arsenal.

Chelsea’s Alvaro Morata is another man on seven for the campaign.

The Spaniard bagged the winner for the Blues in their 1-0 win over Man United at the weekend. However, his odds have held station at 9/1.

It’s a similar story for Mohamed Salah. The Egyptian is Liverpool’s top scorer in the league this term with seven, but our traders have held his Golden Boot odds at an lengthy 25/1.

And Raheem Sterling is the other man on seven goals. The Englishman is enjoying the best season of his career so far, but at 33/1, it’s unlikely he’ll be claiming the top goalscorer award next May.
