The Golden Boot race for the 2023/24 Premier League season should be as intense as ever — but can anyone dethrone the goalscoring machine that is Erling Haaland?
Manchester City’s Norwegian sensation notched a record-breaking 36 Premier League goals last term, beating previous feats set by Andrew Cole and Alan Shearer in the mid-1990s when the division stretched across 42 games.
He will be determined to become the first Man City player to win multiple Golden Boots, but there will be a clutch of scoring stars jostling with him for that much-coveted, end-of-season award.
Keep up to date with the latest 2023/24 Golden Boot standings throughout the season below.

Who are the favourites?
It’s early days of course, but if Haaland sustains this level of brilliance throughout his career then we may have to hand him Roberto Baggio’s ‘Divine Ponytail’ moniker. Sorry Robby. The 22-year-old netted 52 goals in total last term and became the first player to claim both the Young Player of the Season and Premier League Player of the Season awards in a single campaign — a campaign that also saw Pep Guardiola’s men claim a historic Treble.
The Norwegian did prove he was human with a penalty miss against Sheffield United and a couple of easy chances passed up against West Ham. But Haaland has still scored six goals in his opening five games of the season, so you wouldn’t back against him. Write this man off at your peril.

‘The Egyptian King’ endured his joint-worst Premier League scoring campaign for Liverpool in 2022/23, but he still ended it with 19 strikes. That’s certainly not to be sniffed at, especially considering 19 goals would have been enough to land him a Golden Boot in three Premier League seasons (1997/98, 1998/99 and 2008/09). Liverpool are bouncing back from a hugely underwhelming campaign this time around, with Salah already scoring twice (though he looks to be focussing more on his assisting at the moment).
There was a sense that Erik ten Hag is building something special at Old Trafford, and that notion can perhaps be best attributed to Marcus Rashford’s scoring rate under him. The English forward enjoyed his best-ever scoring season in 2022/23 under the Dutchman, including 17 goals in the Premier League. It’s been a fruitful relationship so far, and both student and teacher will be hoping to kick on this term and really push Man City in the title race, which could mean lots of goals for Rashford.
He will have to improve quickly, however, after scoring one goal in his first five league appearances.
