The twenty-goal mark is often thought to be the magic number for players jostling to cart home the prestigious award and there are quite a number of players in the run for the gong.

Despite Tottenham Hotspur's struggles and those of Liverpool, players from the two clubs have proved to be prolific in front of goal this term.

Harry Kane, who won the award during the 2016-17 season after he notched 30 goals is once again in the mix, thanks to his individual brilliance thus far.

The Spurs striker currently leads the charts having already scored 22 goals, and he is on level with Liverpool's Mohamed Salah.

Salah is no guest to winning the prize, having emerged victor during the 2017/18 and 2018/19 seasons.

Bruno Fernandes is placed third on the leader board with 18 strikers to his name, with Son Heung-Min and Everton's Dominic Calvert-Lewin completing the top five slots.

Last season's winner Jamie Vardy is a distant eighth on the log with 13 goals, falling behind Aston Villa ace Ollie Watkins and Leeds United's Patrick Bamford.
