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

Can anyone catch Mohamed Salah? The Liverpool star is at 22 goals on the season and only four matches left to play.

Son Heung-min (20 goals) and Cristiano Ronaldo (18 goals) are charging hard with a handful of matches left in the season, but the Egyptian may now be out of sight in the race for the Golden Boot.

Salah’s Liverpool’s teammates, Diogo Jota (15 goals) and Sadio Mane (14 goals) are also staying relatively close to the leaders, but their chances of catching Salah are slim.

No surprise that Man City has six players with seven or more goals on the list, and Brentford’s Ivan Toney has also hit double digits with 12 goals, as the Bees look set to remain in the Premier League for another season. Jarrod Bowen became the latest member of the double-digit club, bagging his 10th goal of the season in a loss to Arsenal.

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.
