Premier League top scorers 2017-18: Salah stays ahead of Kane & Aguero

The race for the 2017-18 Premier League Golden Boot is well and truly on, with Mohamed Salah the surprise leader as we move towards the new year.

Harry Kane was the clear winner of last season's crown, bagging 29 goals in 30 appearances for Tottenham, while Romelu Lukaku followed with 25 in 37 games for Everton.

New faces such as Chelsea forward Alvaro Morata and Liverpool winger Salah have been added into the mix this season, meaning that the competition is certainly greater.

Salah pulled back ahead of Kane with Liverpool's only goal in a 1-1 draw with Everton, while Wayne Rooney also joined the top six as he netted from the penalty spot.
