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

Can anyone catch Mohamed Salah? The Liverpool star has already hit 20 goals on the season and his own teammate, Diogo Jota, is one of his closest competitors, six goals away.

Tottenham duo Son Heung-min (14 goals) and Harry Kane (12 goals) have quickly been charging up the chart. Cristiano Ronaldo and another Liverpool player, Sadio Mane, are also on 12 goals. 

No surprise that Man City has five players with seven or more goals on the list, and Brentford’s Ivan Toney has hit double digits with 11 goals, as the Bees look set to remain in the Premier League for another season.

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.
