    With the first round of fixtures almost up, the usual suspects are up and running after their exploits last season.

    Sterling with 3.
    Kane with 2.
    Salah, Aubameyang (at the moment) and Aguero with 1.

    Who will end with the golden boot this season then? Will it be one of the above or a surprise contender? Where will Rashford/Martial end up?

    Salah will always be in the conversation. If Kane keeps fit he too will be in te conversation for top scorer.

    Could see Jesus playing more this season so would not want to bet on Aguero. Kane, Auba, Sterling, Salah and maybe Mane should be up there. Aguero and Jesus will both get plenty. Would love to think one of ours but not sure that is realistic. Rashford should be our top scorer but anyone's guess how many he will get. I think he really needs a better midfield behind him.

    Kane definitely if none of the contenders get injured. Sterling with his best chance to finish with a golden boot this season should Kane go to sleep for a few matches.

    Salah in the conversation, though not like his record breaking season.

    Salah's first season did turn out to be the complete anomaly that calmer heads expected. I'm not convinced he'll be a perennial competitor in any season featuring a fully fit Kane.

    Hopefully that hypothesis will be tested this season.

    So hard to back Kane with those dodgy ankles. Having said that he could get injured and still win it given his goals per game ratio, which is the best ever in the league.

    Usual suspects, Kane, PEA, Salah.

    I wouldn't be surprised if all of Kane, Salah, Sterling, Aguero, Aubameyang, Mane, Vardy, and maybe even Rashford got 20+ Premier League goals this season. They all seem like they could be well at it. Less so Vardy and Rashford, but Vardy is very good under Rogers and Rashford will play more minutes this season in more dangerous areas than he ever has you'd think (barring injury).

    Just for reference, barring his first season in the Premier League with Leicester, Vardy has scored 24, 13, 20, and 18 goals in his four other PL seasons. He's definitely in with a shot if Leicester are as good as I think they'll be this season.

    Sterling is a great player no doubt, but he still hasn't shaken off the inherent wobblyness/hesitancy in front of the goal. With the way Man City play and the number of chances that he gets he could be hitting Messi/Ronaldo numbers of 50 goals a season if he was far more clinical. As it stands I'd still expect 30+ goals from him this season and that would be amazing.

    Sterling is in with a chance if they set up like that all season.

    Not taking this piss here, but what does that mean?
    If they do get injured then not definitely Kane?
    :confused:

    But on the thread, I also think Sterling will pip it ahead of Kane, with Salah on par or close 3rd.

    Badly worded on my part. I meant if everyone remains uninjured then Kane will still take the golden boot IMHO. If he gets injured for a period then he might struggle to catch up on lost ground.

    Seriously though, probably Kane if he stays fit. He is clinical and takes penalties. Think we might see a dip from Salah and Sterling misses a lot of chances.

    Kane, Sterling or Salah. I'd be stunned if it was anyone else. Mane probably won't score as many as last season, Aguero will rotate more with Jesus and I'm unconvinced by Aubameyang and Arsenal.

    What makes you think that Salah will miss chances? How much of a dip we talking here?

    Ah gotcha.
    Yeah its a tough one to call, but hard to disagree with Kane getting it.
    He had a difficult time last season with some niggles throughout the campaign and ended up with 17, so its important he says fit if he wants a shot at it, but then again that applies to all the contenders as well.

    Sterling will score 30+ league goals this season in my opinion. His movement and runs are comfortably the best in the league and he’s finally added a level of composure to his finishing over the last couple of months. He gets so many chances in most games, if he stays injury free I think he’ll win it.

    If he played 32-33 matches, it'll be Kane. The only healthy season he hasn't won it was because Salah set the all time record.

    If Kane has another serious injury (his ankles :nervous:), then my money would be on Aubamayeng.

    Aubemayang would be my bet if I was in a bookies. Pepe and Teirney should provide better service than he had last season. I feel Eriksen will be slightly unmotivated and that might knock a couple of Kane's total.

    I’d give Rash a fair shot. We’re tuting to play attacking football, and it looks he is our penalty shooter as well. Let’s get him over the 20 goals mark lads

    Well, he's already seen a massive dip in goalscoring form since his anomalous breakout season. He just isn't really that clinical and his first season at Liverpool still has a lot of people hoodwinked.

    He regressed to his mean last season and if he stays at his natural level, he'll be trounced by Kane, providing the latter can stay fit for most of the season.

    (But I ultimately agree with your question. I don't see why Salah should drop off in scoring much more than he already did last season.)

    If everyone stays fit all season, the only players I can see giving Kane any grief are the City boys through sheer volume of chances. That team creates so many chances that a profligate striker could hit 20 with ease -- and they have much better than profligate.

    I think ( and bloody well hope) that Martial will be a surprise contender. Once he settles in to that number 9 role again I think he can get at least 20 this season.

    Rashford is going to step it up this year and score a lot of goals. And if he's our penalty taker now, that should add another 7 or 8 on top of that. Don't be surprised to see him in the running...

    If Sterling keeps up his average goals per game record for this season, he'll end up with 114 goals. But that's unrealistic so I'll have to go with Kane with 27 goals. Sterling, Aguero, Aubameyang, Mane, and Salah to get over 20 too.
