Sergio Aguero, Harry Kane and Jamie Vardy enjoyed a three-way battle to win the Premier League Golden Boot last season.

Tottenham Hotspur’s Kane emerged victorious, scoring 25 goals to Aguero and Vardy’s 24.

The trio of strikers will compete once again to win the individual honour when the new season gets underway on Saturday.

There are plenty of new additions to the Premier League who will be aiming to take the award from Kane, including Manchester United’s Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Chelsea’s Michy Batshuayi.

Meanwhile, Arsenal fans will be hoping Arsene Wenger brings in a new striker before the window shuts who can compete with the aforementioned names, for many doubt that Olivier Giroud has what it takes to do so.

Sky Sports have gathered their expert pundits, including Jamie Carragher and Gary Neville, to predict who will collect the Golden Boot in May, and it’s safe to say they are predicting a two-horse race.

Gary Neville: Sergio Aguero

“I'll say Kane or Sergio Aguero and I'll pick Aguero because he's the best goalscorer in the league and City, as a club, will probably score more goals. Potentially Diego Costa could do it if he stays at Chelsea.”


Jamie Carragher: Harry Kane

“In the last couple of years it's been between Kane and Aguero because they always play.

“Aguero is as good as anyone, but he has too many injury problems.

"I will go for Kane, as long as he's not taking corners, eh Gary?”

Jamie Redknapp: Harry Kane

“I’ve gone with Harry Kane at 7/1. I lost my money on Aguero last year but I've learnt my lesson.

“It's a difficult one because there's always a Jamie Vardy or someone who comes through, but I think it's between Aguero and Kane.”

Graeme Souness: Sergio Aguero

“It's hard to look beyond Aguero. I think Vardy will be up there again.

“I can't look beyond those at this time, although I can see Marcus Rashford forcing his way into the United team. He gets goals.”
