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

Can anyone catch Mohamed Salah? The Liverpool star is at 22 goals on the season with only one week remaining in the campaign. Son Heung-min (21 goals) is just one goal behind with one match to play and the race is down to those two stars.

Cristiano Ronaldo (18 goals) was charging hard down the final stretch, but he is set to come up short with one game to go. Salah’s Liverpool teammates, Diogo Jota and Sadio Mane (both at 15 goals) are even further behind.

There’s little surprise that Man City have six players with seven or more goals on the list with Kevin De Bruyne leading the way for his team (15 goals). The last two top scorers, Harry Kane (2020-21) and Jamie Vardy (2019-20) are also ranked high with a late-season outburst.

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.
