Kane and Salah Head Golden Boot Market, but Aubameyang Makes Each-Way Appeal
After being denied a hat-trick of Premier League Golden Boots by Mo Salah last season, Harry Kane will be determined to hit back in the 2018/19 campaign.
188BET expect him to secure his third Premier League Golden Boot, to back-up his top-scorer’s title at the World Cup, as they have him priced at 3.00 to top the charts.
It’s understandable that the market makers are wary of the Tottenham Hotspur man, as his Premier League goals return in the last three years has been 30, 29 and 25. Whether Harry Kane is a gambler is not clear, but his approach to football is of a man who believes in the saying that you can’t win the lottery without buying a ticket. In 153 appearances, he has netted 108 times – from 596 shots.
Kane is not shy in pulling the trigger and with this Tottenham side set up to get him the ball in the most advantageous positions as often as possible, goals will come his way.
The worry for his Golden Boot rivals is how many can he plunder if he works out where the back of the net is in August. He’s yet to hit the target in the opening month of the season, but that will surely change this time round.
Salah had a special season last term, topping the scoring charts with 31 goals. There will be plenty of Liverpool fans ready to go in again, as it’s not a stretch to say the players the Reds have brought in this summer have made them a stronger side.
What Salah has to prove is that he can do it again against defenders who will be aware of his strengths. The thing in his favour is that the Egyptian looked an improved player under Jurgen Klopp and there’s no reason to believe he can’t take his game on again. At 5.50 with 188BET, there will be plenty prepared to back him again.
Kane and Salah dominate the betting, but 188BET are offering four places in the each-way market and at 7.00, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang makes some appeal.
The Gabon forward established a proven record for scoring lots of goals during his time at Borussia Dortmund, and he’s since had half a season to bed into new surrounds at Arsenal.
New Gunners boss Unai Emery has talked about wanting to work on strengthening his side’s defensive resolve, but he will not turn his back on the Arsene Wenger traditions of attacking football and Aubameyang should get enough chances to make him competitive in the race for the Golden Boot.
