|Rank No.||Scorer’s Name||Season 2018/19 Goals|
|3.||Pierre Emerick Aubameyang||22|
A spectacular thing happened this year; the top 3 players on this list all got the same number of goals, to show how much of a keen contest it was. There is no other League in the world at the moment where such an exciting rivalry can be seen. The English Premier League really deserves that crown on the Lion’s head in their logo.
Well let us break down the performances of these football gladiators to see how they performed, and how they earned their positions on the list.
Top 10 Best Scorers in EPL 2019
1. Mohammed Salah
- Club: Liverpool
The Egyptian superstar hitman claimed his second consecutive Golden Shoe Award, despite not firing as forcefully as he did in the previous season. He endured a difficult few first months of the season which saw him bullied by defenders here and there, but he overcame those mental hurdles and regained his composure and clinical finishing as the league went on.
Mohammed Salah led Liverpool’s title charge as they gave Manchester City a run for their money, even though they lost out on the final day of the League season because Manchester City refused to drop points.
Mohammed Salah maintained a 2 goal advantage over his peers but failed to score on the last day, and so was caught up with by his Liverpool teammate Sadio Mane, and Arsenal counterpart Pierre Emerick Aubameyang.
2. Sadio Mane
- Club: Liverpool
Among the best scorers in Premier League, Sadio Mane, an embodiment of mental strength. He is living proof of the fact that you have to fight hard to get what you want in life. Having lived under the shadow of Mohammed Salah for too long, Sadio Mane is beginning to show the world what he can do. With 22 goals this season, Sadio Mane earns himself a Golden Shoe Award, and with this Golden Shoe Award, he announces himself to the world, reborn, recharged, rebranded!
This is a complete player; he has the pace, power, and shooting accuracy which would embolden any coach, giving him cause to dream of UEFA Champions League glory.
Sadio Mane has been given less playing time at Liverpool than his Egyptian teammate but has managed to draw level on goals, and so share the most important personal accolade in the league, outside a winners medal.
3. Pierre Emerick Aubameyang
- Club: Arsenal
The Arsenal new boy is handsome. Many thought that was all he had to offer: a handsome face for the fans to admire, and a poster-boy for the marketing side of the game, but no, Pierre Emerick Aubameyang has proven himself to be much more that all that. By scoring 22 goals, and thereby winning a share of the Golden Shoe Award, Pierre Emerick Aubameyang of Arsenal and Guinea proves that he is a true world class striker.
Pierre Aubameyang leads the frontline of a faltering Arsenal side, still needing re-enforcement in several areas, but which shows signs of potentially becoming a force to fear, both in the English Premier League.
4. Sergio Aguero
- Club: Manchester City
Expected top scorer in EPL!!, When you are so good that you no longer worry about doing well, but concern yourself with creating records that put you in the history books. That is the story of Sergio Aguero. Although he would have no doubt loved to get a share of the Golden Shoes being handed out left and right, Sergio Aguero turned up one goal short of the winning tally; his 21 goals not measuring up.
That will remain mysterious because, Sergio Aguero has spearheaded the most potent, dominant, and fearful attacking force in the English Premier League in a long time, maybe in history. This is the first and only team to successfully retain the Premier League Title, winning a record 14 last games of the season.
More records for Aguero come in the form of recording 11 career hat tricks in the English Premier League, putting him level with Newcastle Legend Alan Shearer. We could expect nothing less from Diego Maradona’s son-in-law.
5. Jamie Vardy
- Club: Leicester City
Jamie Vardy comes in at number for having scored 18 goals, but he still outranks some of the players who appear above him. Jamie Vardy has in his cabinet a Winners Medal gained during Leicester City’ wonderful win in the 2016/2017 season.
The England International made a late-charging goal run but only managed 18 League goals despite his best efforts. This is not a true reflection of his finishing ability, however, Jamie Vardy is a true predator if given decent service, and if he remains at the club, and the club acquires some re-enforcements, he could do so much better.
6. Raheem Sterling
- Club: Manchester City
The runner in the Blue Shirt Raheem Sterling of England comes in next with his 17 goals. He is actually a midfielder, which makes his accomplishment all the more noteworthy. He was always known for his ability to run at defenders with the ball at his feet, but this term Raheem Sterling has added a lethal touch to his list of abilities and this has quickly launched him into the limelight with a PFA Young Player of the Year Award to go with his Winners Medal.
Raheem Sterling has not only scored 17 goals, but he has also produced 10 assists for his club, in the English Premier League this season. All thanks to Coach Pep Guardiola who has bestowed so much faith in him, giving him 5293 minutes of football this season.
7. Harry Kane
- Club: Tottenham Hotspurs
Poor Harry Kane. One of the main reasons for a revitalized Tottenham Hotspurs side, Harry Kane, unfortunately, finds himself down in the number 5 position due to injury. The Tottenham Striker who was once thought to carry his team alone on his shoulders only got 17 goals this term, due to a mid-season injury, but what a surprise- Tottenham did not die, thanks to determination and a coordinated team effort, and heroics the likes of Heung-Min Son, Lucas Moura and Dele Ali.
Harry Kane will no doubt be cursing his luck this season but doubters only have to look at his impressive figures in previous seasons: in the 2015/2016 he had 25 goals, in the 2016/ 2017 season he had 29 goals scored, and in the 2017/ 2018 season he had 30 goals to his name. Hopefully, the Tottenham number 10 man can shake off this cruciate ligament injury to make an epic comeback.
8. Eden Hazard
- Club: Chelsea
The Chelsea superman come is next! on the list of the best scorers in Premier League, Eden Hazard scored 16 goals this season. Eden Hazard has also raised the bar for all midfielders this season; He has taught them how to do the Midfielders job- which is to create goal scoring chances. This term he provided 15 assists, and if you calculate the number of misses by the likes of Olivier Giroud, then you get a true glimpse of the frightening potential that is Eden Hazard.
On a good day, Hazard is a magician on a different level, only dwarfed in this regard by the likes Lionel Messi and Christiano Ronaldo. In his favorite position on the left side of attack, Eden Hazard is a game decider in his own right; on the day when he is in the mood he dribbles his way into the box and causes riotous scenes of trouble for the opponent’s defense.
The prolific Belgian goes home with the Premier League’s Play-maker Award, which is the equivalent of the Golden Shoe Award for Midfielders. He was also nominated for the PFA Player Award.
9. Callum Wilson
- Club: Bournemouth
With 14 goals and 1 assist in the English Premier League this season, Callum Wilson comes in next. This England International has spearheaded the Bournemouth charge as they have proven to be no pushovers to anybody. On their day, they are quite capable of handing out embarrassing defeats to bigger teams, as they have shown with the likes of Chelsea.
10. Paul Pogba
- Club: Manchester United
Some will argue that many of his goals this season are penalties, but who can deny the enormous pressure that comes with being your team’s penalty taker. The 26-year-old Frenchman has scored 11 goals this season and given a total of 9 assists. Yes, some goals have come from the penalty spot, but some strikers even saddled with the responsibility of taking penalties still do not have as many goals as he does.
With his name on the top scorers in EPL’s list 2019, Paul Pogba sets himself apart from all that is wrong with Manchester United. He puts his class beyond any reasonable doubt and shows that with more quality players on his side he can do so much better. This season Paul Pogba also has 9 assists, a tacking success rate of 64 percent, and he also has a passing accuracy of 83 Percent.
Worthy Mentions: Alexander Lacazette, Gylfi Sigurdsson, Richalison, Raul Jimenez, and Glen Murray also got 13 goals each.
