- The Premier League game three is done for the majority of clubs, and fans look forward to game four
- The Golden boot race has already started, and the contenders can be noted

The first two/three games of the season of the Premier League have already produced some great finishes, which means that the fight for the Premier League Golden Boot has so far begun.
The competition to win the prestigious award is not a dash but a season-long marathon.
There are a number of things that can go wrong throughout an individual’s season. For instance, from suffering an untimely injury to falling out of form.
In addition, some of them are designated to take penalties for their respective clubs. This, gives them a better opportunity to score a handful of easy goals that will propel their totals.
This year, a few newcomers are clear favourites to get the boot. And some who have been there for a while are also in contention.
Let’s look at the top five players who are getting the most support from the bookies in their bid to win the Premier League Golden Boot this season.
1 Erling Haaland (Man City) @ 11/4
It seems appropriate, given that the Norwegian appears to attract good fortune wherever he goes.
This year, Haaland is a significant threat to any competition since he is supported by a supply line of esteemed stars who each bring a unique set of skills to the table.
In addition, on his debut, he emerged as City’s new penalty-taker, which contributed to him scoring two goals, making him Premier League’s third highest goal scorer so far .
2 Harry Kane (Tottenham) @ 11/2
Even though Kane could not defend his title last year, he continues to be the second favourite with an overall chance of 18% to win the golden boot for the fourth time.
Tottenham appears to be a significantly more powerful unit than in the past now that they have made several key signings.
They possess an outstanding group of wingers and superb midfielders who can find the prolific striker consistently. Kane is a high-class player, and if his team gets the reinforcements they need, he should be able to improve his performance from the previous year.
3 Darwin Nunez (Liverpool) @ 11/1
Another first-year player to immediately factor into discussions about who will be the league’s leading scorer is Liverpool’s recent signing from Benfica.
7% of bookmakers feel Nunez can easily beat his competitors under Jürgen Klopp’s coaching.
Nunez already has a goal to add to his record in his first game in the league. His instincts for poaching are extremely dangerous. In addition to a system as high-octane as Liverpool’s to suit his personality, he will only get better at what he does.
If he can maintain his performance until the end of the season, there is a chance that he will win the Golden Boot.
4 Gabriel Jesus (Arsenal) @ 11/1
After making the switch from Manchester City, the newest member of the Arsenal squad is currently ranked as the fourth overall favourite to win the golden boot this season.
10% of the faithful are certain that Gabriel Jesus has not yet reached his full potential.
The Brazil international took a significant step forwards when he signed with the Gunners for the upcoming season.
He did not want to retain his role as a rotation player at Etihad. He wanted to serve as cover for the incoming Erling Haaland, and thus he expressed his desire to leave the club.
5 Mohamed Salah (Liverpool) @ 9/2
The player who shared the Premier League Golden boot in the previous year is now ranked as the third overall favourite to take home the golden boot, with an outright chance of 13%.
The fact that Salah takes most of the Reds’ penalties is undoubtedly beneficial to his prospects.
However, compared to past years, the likelihood of his scoring has decreased.
The loss of Sadio Mane has left Egypt international with the responsibility of playing a far more varied role, such as protecting the flanks and providing more assists.
