Premier League 2016/17 Golden Boot Battle (21/4/17)

Premier League 2016/17 Golden Boot Battle (21/4/17)

With some playing 33 Premier League games in the 2016/17 season, this year could see a record number of players break the 20 goal mark.

With goalscoring so far this season, the Golden Boot race is set to be the most competitive in the last 20 years and if six players break that magical 20 mark this year it will be for the first time since the 1994/95 season.

And that's important because back then the Premier League was a 42 match division.

The reduction in games is worth noting because the Premier League has only registered five or more players scoring 20 or over on three occasions - six in 1993/94 and 1994/95 with 42 games, and then five in 2009/10.

In contention for this year's Golden Boot are Romelu Lukaku, Harry Kane, Alexis Sanchez, Diego Costa, Sergio Aguero and Zlatan Ibrahimovic but with the games now remaining you would think Dele Alli, Jermain Defoe and Eden Hazard are now out of the running.

But there are enough games left for the table below to change so we'll just have to see what happens.
