- The year 2022 has seen some prolific goalscorers from across various leagues
- Overall, there are some names which inevitably make the list in terms of leading in goal scoring prowess so far this year
- Manchester City’s Erling Haaland and Tottenham’s Harry Kane are among the highest scoring players in the Premier League this year
By now, it is public knowledge that scoring in the Premier League is not the easiest thing to do.
For this reason, players who notch in 20 goals in the English top flight in a season are always likely to be in contention for the Golden Boot.
This season, only one name has been ringing in that conversation – Erling Haaland.
The Norwegian has hit the ground running in the Premier League, despite initial concerns that he might need time to adapt after a famous move from Borussia Dortmund.
His numbers are so impressive so far, in fact, that only four players have scored more Premier League goals than him in 2022 going into the September international break.
He currently has 11 goals to his name, which is already more than Cristiano Ronaldo (10 in 22), Mohamed Salah (10 in 21) and Gabriel Jesus (10 in 19).
