The Premier League Golden Boot race is already up and running this season with Liverpool attacker Mohamed Salah and Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy leading the way with six goals.
Salah has scored in all the Liverpool games this season as far as Premier League football is concerned except for the second game against Burnley. Portuguese attacker Diogo Jota and Senegal national team star Sadio Mane were on target for the Reds in a 2-0 home victory over Burnley.
Egyptian international Salah took his Premier League tally to six goals afterhis solo goal against holders Manchester City when they travelled to Merseyside to take on his Liverpool side in a league clash. Salah had provided the first goal of the game for fellow African Mane on 59 minutes only for it to be cancelled out by a Phil Foden strike. Salah then took laws into his hands with fourteen (14) minutes left on the clock as he dribbled past several Manchester City players before finding the back of the net via a right-footed finish.
Salah scored a contender for the Goal of the Season which was worthy of winning any game but Manchester City showed character to bounce back five minutes after going behind for the second time in the game with a second goal thanks to a deflected strike from Kevin De Bruyne.
Liverpool and Manchester City had to settle for a 2-2 draw and that meant that the Reds lost the Premier League summit to Chelsea.
Vardy scored his sixth goal of the new Premier League campaign with the second Leicester City goal in the 2-2 draw at the home of Crystal Palace.
West Ham United attacker Michail Antonio is the nearest challenger to Vardy and Salah in the Golden Boot Award race with five goals, while the likes of Bruno Fernandes of Manchester United, Neal Maupay of Brighton, IsmailaSarr of Watford and Sadio Mane of Liverpool have four goals each.
