While some have claimed this to be one of the more mundane openings to a Premier League season in recent memory - certainly in an attacking context - there have nevertheless been several players staking an early claim to be the division's top scorer. 

The race for the Golden Boot - awarded annually to the man who manages to net the most goals in the league over the course of a season - already appears to be hotting up and, while the standings feature many familiar names, there are also one or two players unexpectedly showing off their goalscoring credentials.

Here, GMS looks at the four players currently leading the way in the race for the Golden Boot and rates their chances of keeping up such form for the rest of the campaign.
