Premier League top goal scorers 2023/2024: Updated EPL golden boot rankings as Erling Haaland moves clear

After setting a new single-season Premier League goals record (36 goals) en route to the Golden Boot award in 2022/23, Manchester City star Erling Haaland came out of the gates strong once again.

After 15 appearances, Haaland was comfortably the leader in the 2023/24 Golden Boot race, with 14 goals. However, after suffering a foot injury in December, he did not play again until he made a substitute appearance in the 3-1 win over Burnley on January 31. Despite needing time to reacclimate himself after returning from injury, Haaland’s brilliant brace to down Everton 2-0 on February 10 put him out in front of the race once more.

He then scored against Brentford on February 20, giving him a goal against all 21 Premier League opponents he has faced thus far in his glittering young career. Despite a dreadful first-half miss, Haaland was on hand to crown City’s 3-1 derby win over Manchester United on March 3, but he drew blanks against Liverpool and Arsenal.

However, he was caught by Cole Palmer at the top of the table, who surged into the contenders with a four-spot against Everton in mid-April. The first three goals in that match marked the fastest perfect hat-trick in Premier League history, and gave Palmer his second trio in recent weeks following a dramatic late rescue act against Manchester United. Haaland now sits one goal ahead.

Ollie Watkins of Aston Villa is one behind the leaders after his excellent goal against Arsenal taking him to 19 for the season. Impressively, not one of those has come from the penalty spot. Alexander Isak moved level with Watkins after helping Newcastle United beat Sheffield United 5-1.

Mohamed Salah had long been on Haaland’s tail, his goal against Brentford taking him to 15 as he made a timely return from injury and Africa Cup of Nations duty. He missed the games against Luton Town and Nottingham Forest, though. Salah returned as a substitute during Liverpool’s 1-1 draw against City, where he and Haaland were each unable to find the target, but he did eventually score after nearly a dozen missed efforts in the 2-1 win over Brighton & Hove Albion. Yet with just three games left in Liverpool’s season, and Salah drawing blanks against Crystal Palace, Everton and West Ham, it seems unlikely he will now finish top of the pile.

Dominic Solanke had moved level with Salah after scoring the goal that triggered Bournemouth’s remarkable comeback from 3-0 down at home to Luton Town, and his strike against Everton saw him climb above the Liverpool star. Phil Foden is also surging, putting forth a Player of the Year calibre season, with the latest entry a brace against his favourite opponent Brighton to follow a hat-trick against Aston Villa in early April.
