Undrafted Premier League 2021/22 – Top Goalscorer

With fans back in the stadiums, blockbuster transfers happening left, right and centre you get that feeling like the Premier League 2021/22 campaign will be the most competitive yet. All the Undrafted writers were asked to pick their “Top Goalscorer” for this season and provide their reasoning behind their decision.

Let’s see who Jamie kicks us off with….

Top Goalscorer Prediction: Harry Kane

With Mo Salah being the only challenger, I just can’t not pick Harry Kane. He just scores goals. Could be non existent in a match and walk off with a hat trick because he just doesn’t miss the target with his shots. A truly phenomenal striker that I once dubbed a one season wonder! If he goes to City then he will definitely get the golden boot. And it won’t be close.

Top Goalscorer Prediction: Mohamed Salah

With Harry Kane’s future currently undecided, I think the safe option is Mo Salah. Despite not being an out and out striker, the Egyptian is potent in front of goal, and has managed 97 goals in 158 Premier League appearances. 

With Liverpool’s defence back to full strength, it frees up midfielders to actually play in their strongest positions, which will create more opportunities for Salah, Mane and Firmino. 

I predict Salah to be top scorer, with around 24 goals.

Top Goalscorer Prediction: Harry Kane

Wherever Harry is playing football next season, he’ll be the top goal scorer. Since the 14/15 season the least amount of goals he’s scored over a season is 17 which is still very respectable. Narrowly beating Mo Salah by 1 goal last season to clinch his third golden boot. Harry is now only 95 goals away from becoming the top goal scorer in Premier League history and he doesn’t seem to be slowing down any time soon.

If Kane gets his move to Manchester City before the end of the transfer window, we could be looking at a 40 goal season. There are a few players that could spoil the golden boot party for Kane but his consistency is incredible regardless of the calibre of players around him.

Top Goalscorer Prediction: Romelu Lukaku

The only person more dangerous in front of goal than the great Harry Kane is a motivated Romelu Lukaku, and the man has rediscovered this in Milan. Lukaku became the most expensive player ever through combined transfers and it is easy to see why. When he hits his stride he is practically unplayable and as long as Chelsea stop living up to their moniker as the striker graveyard, Lukaku will reign supreme.
