Top 10 Premier League Scorer Candidates for 2022/2023: Ronaldo, Salah, Son, Haaland, Nunez, Who Else?
List of top scoring candidates for the Premier League 2022/23. The competition for the title of top scorer this season is predicted to be increasingly fierce with the presence of a new line of top strikers.
Last year’s 2021/22 season, the Premier League’s top scorer title was won by two players with 23 goals, namely Liverpool star Mohamed Salah and Tottenham striker from South Korea, Son Heung-min .
Salah and Son are also believed to be competing again in this new season. Besides the two, there is also Manchester United superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo , who scored 18 goals last season.
Meanwhile, a number of Europe’s top strikers are now also starting to arrive in the Premier League. Erling Haaland joined Manchester City, while Darwin Nunez joined Liverpool.
So, who are the players who have a great chance to become the Premier League’s top scorer for the 2022/23 season? Here’s the full list.
Ronaldo, of course, deserves to be put forward to compete for the title of top scorer for the 2022/23 season. Even though he is 37 years old, CR7’s goal record cannot lie.
In the 2021/22 season, Ronaldo managed to score 24 goals in 39 matches for Manchester United in all competitions. Unfortunately, the Red Devils did not win a trophy at all.
Now under Erik ten Hag’s polish, Ronaldo’s goal record could be a significant improvement.
Mohamed Salah could be the most favored return to win the top scorer title. Although his original position is a winger, Salah is very productive.
Salah has even won the Premier League top scorer award three times, namely the 2017/18, 2018/19 and 2021/22 seasons yesterday.
Salah’s sharpness in front of the opponent’s goal is predicted not to decrease in this new season, and this will certainly have a very positive impact for Liverpool.
Son’s extraordinary achievement was inscribed with the Spurs in the 2021/22 season yesterday. He became the Premier League’s top scorer with 23 goals. Remarkably, none of these goals were born from the execution of a penalty.
One of the factors that Son is so sharp is the presence of the figure of Antonio Conte in the manager’s chair. Conte has proven to be able to bring out the best potential of his Asian star.
Son is now looking at the new season with full of confidence. The 29-year-old striker hopes to repeat his feat like last season.
In this summer’s transfer window, Manchester City signed Haaland from Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund for a transfer fee of approximately 60 million euros.
Manchester City are willing to spend that much to get Haaland, who has an amazing goal record, even since he was still defending Red Bull Salzburg.
Throughout three seasons strengthening Dortmund, Haaland scored 86 goals in 89 matches. Extraordinary!
Nunez’s goal record is no less flashy. The player who is only 22 years old has scored 48 goals in the 85 matches he played with Benfica over two seasons.
In fact, in the 2021/22 season, Nunez managed to score 34 goals in 41 matches in all competitions.
Now, Darwin Nunez is ready to start a new adventure with Liverpool. It will be interesting to see how the Uruguayan striker will contribute to the Reds next season.
Kane has always been consistent from season to season as Tottenham’s mainstay goal machine. Last season he scored 27 goals in 50 games in all competitions.
Kane is also very familiar with the Premier League top scorer award. He has won it three times, namely in the 2015/16, 2016/17 and 2020/21 seasons.
Kane also deserves to be put forward in the competition for the Premier League golden boot trophy in this new season.
Gabriel Jesus will soon complete his move from Manchester City to Arsenal. Jesus will also be the Gunners’ new goal machine.
If at City he is more often played with the characteristics of a striker free role, then at Arsenal Jesus will be able to live his original role as a target man.
This means, Jesus’ goal productivity may experience a significant increase with Arsenal, and he can also enter the Premier League’s top scoring market.
The contribution of Vardy’s goals to Leicester City is unquestionable. Almost every season his goal record is always in double digits.
Until now, Vardy is still the sharpest local English striker in the Premier League. He also won the golden shoe trophy in the 2019/20 season.
Now Vardy will still be Leicester’s mainstay on the front lines, and his goal spigot is predicted to be quite fast.
Signed from Wolves in 2020, Jota immediately made an extraordinary contribution to Liverpool.
In the last two seasons in uniform with the Reds, Jota has recorded 34 goals, including 21 goals in all competitions for the 2021/22 season yesterday.
Jota’s goal productivity is believed to be still high for this new season. Especially if the minutes of play are increasing under the care of Jurgen Klopp.
Despite his often controversial behavior, Richarlison is actually one of the most dangerous strikers in the Premier League.
Until now Richarlison still uniformed Everton. However, rumors say that he will soon join Chelsea.
If it is true that it is close to Stamford Bridge, then Richarlison’s goal productivity is predicted to be higher and he has the opportunity to compete for the top scorer title.
