Kane found the net some 25 times last season, once more than Manchester City's Sergio Aguero and Leicester City's Jamie Vardy and whilst the Golden Boot winner usually comes from a side which is challenging for top honours, there are many clubs in the running on that front with Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City the early frontrunners for the Premier League title. Indeed, Kane ended the long-held dominance of the likes of Manchester United, Liverpool, Manchester City, Arsenal and Chelsea, these clubs effectively controlling the destination of the Golden Boot for around a quarter of a century with Manchester United players winning it some five times during that time.
Sergio Aguero sits level with Zlatan Ibrahimovic at the top of the goalscoring charts after the opening three league games of the season and we feel that the Argentinian will feature heavily in the race for the Golden Boot in 2016/17 with Paddy Power going 5/2 that he finishes the campaign as top scorer, although can he manage more than last season's winner Harry Kane who will doubtless will looking to help Spurs towards another title challenge?
Jamie Vardy turned down Arsenal in favour of remaining with reigning champions Leicester City, however the question remains whether or not he can replicate his success in front of goal in 2016/17. He has been pretty slow off the mark so far with his first and as yet only league goal coming on Saturday afternoon in the 2-1 win over Swansea City.
Who could forget Manchester United's Zlatan Ibrahimovic, the Swedish superstar perhaps not in the prime of youth but enjoying a great start at Old Trafford following his move from PSG during the summer. Zlatan is second favourite after Aguero to finish the season as top scorer with Coral going 9/2 that the Swede wins the Golden Boot.
