Gabriel Jesus tipped to be Premier League Top Goalscorer in 2017 2018 season

Harry Kane will attempt to become the first Premier League striker since Thierry Henry in 2006 to win three Premier League Golden Boot trophies in a row, but the Tottenham Hotspur and England frontman will face a flurry of lively adversaries in the new campaign in what should be a fascinating contest to be crowned 2017 Premier League Top Goalscorer, when the action kicks off on Friday night.

  • Harry Kane won Golden Boot in 2016 and 2017
  • Romelu Lukaku scored 25 goals last season for Everton
  • Sergio Aguero won Golden Boot in 2014/2015 campaign

Kane, Lukaku, Aguero The Top 3 In Betting

A phenomenal run of scoring at the end of last season saw Harry Kane propel to the 29-goal mark, which saw him build on his 25-goal season in the 2015/16 campaign, to win the golden boot, and it's no surprise to see the prolific Spurs striker installed as the 100/30 favourite with BetVictor to top the charts yet again.

Kane's record was made more impressive by the fact he missed a handful of matches through injury, so if he can play a whole season this year then he is going to be tough to beat, but while others have strengthened considerably in the off-season, Spurs may well struggle to build on last season's second place, and while Kane is sure to score at least 20 goals, he may just be edged out by one of his rivals in what is a fascinating betting market.

Romelu Lukaku netted 25 goals for Everton last season, and having joined Manchester United he is likely to continue that sort of form, but with Champions League games likely to be at the forefront of Jose Mourinho's mind then the Belgian may be rested for a few Premier League matches, and with United not possessing hugely creative players, then the 9/2 with Betfair Sportsbook is very skinny.

Sergio Aguero has one Premier League golden boot crown to his name, which came in the 2014/15 season, and he is 7/1 with Sky Bet for this year's crown, but with the attacking prowess at Pep Guardiola's disposal at Manchester City this season, and Aguero sometimes finding himself dropped in favour of Gabriel Jesus last seson, then it's worth avoiding the Argentinean class act.

Gabriel Jesus The Value Play

Brazilian sensation Gabriel Jesus made an instant impact at the Etihad Stadium last season, scoring seven goals in ten appearances, but an injury-blighted campaign saw the 20-year-old sit on the sidelines after breaking a metatarsal, so he will be aiming for more time on the pitch this campaign.

However, he showed in that handful of matches that he could be the new superstar of the City attack, and if Guardiola elects to play Jesus and Aguero together, then that pair could easily score 50 goals between them, and with Jesus likely to improve as the season goes on then the 9/1 with bet365 for him to top score is a cracking bet.

Other Contenders

Arsenal duo Alexis Sanchez (14/1 with William Hill) and Alexandre Lacazette (12/1 with bet365) are another couple of intriguing candidates, but the former has been rumoured to be unhappy at the Emirates, so he may struggle to challenge, while Lacazette may be a more attractive betting proposition next season.

Chelsea's big summer signing is Alvaro Morata, who is expected to replace Diego Costa (20/1 with BetVictor) as the Blues' main frontman, but at 10/1 with Paddy Power, he is not worth taking a chance with, as Chelsea may not be the force of last season, and will find it tough to retain their Premier League title.

Marcus Rashford (25/1) is next in the betting, but he won't get the playing time, while the likes of Eden Hazard (50/1) and Jamie Vardy (40/1) won't bag enough goals to play their part, while Jermain Defoe (66/1) and Tammy Abraham (100/1) are another pair worth mentioning that should hit double figures, but it's going to be a market dominated by the front few in the betting.
