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

Must Read

Who can catch Mohamed Salah at the top of the Premier League scoring chart? Liverpool teammate Diogo Jota is hot on his heels after a two-goal performance in a Feb. 10 victory over Leicester City.

Salah maintained his lead atop the scoring charts despite joining Egypt for the Africa Cup of Nations tournament in January and advancing all the way to the final. Jota remains four goals behind.

If they can stay healthy, the always goal-hungry Jamie Vardy (9 goals) could yet be a factor, as could Son Heung-min for Tottenham (9 goals). And you can never quite count out Cristiano Ronaldo (8 goals) although he’s mired in a cold spell during Manchester United’s inconsistent season.
