Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang 5/2 favourite to be Premier League top goalscorer

Who’ll win the race for the Premier League’s Golden Boot?
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is now 5/2 favourite with our traders to be the Premier League’s top goalscorer this season as we head into the weekend fixtures.
The Arsenal hitman now has six goals from his last seven league games and while he’s equal in the scoring charts with Vardy on 17, it’s his red-hot form that has seen him made favourite.
Last night’s spectacular finish against Olympiacos showcased his killer instinct in front of goal, though perhaps it’s his late miss that will live longer in the memory, as Arsenal crashed out of the Europa League. Can Aubameyang redeem himself by firing Arsenal up the Premier League standings?
Sergio Aguero has failed to score in his last three games, but it’s worth noting he has the best minutes to goals ratio – requiring just 84 minutes per goal, to Aubameyang’s 130. But with Man City’s priorities perhaps shifting to the cups, Pep Guardiola may decide his talents are better utilised elsewhere.
“The race for the Golden Boot in the Premier League this season is going to be very interesting as there is very little separating Aubameyang, Aguero and Vardy in the betting,” said Coral’s John Hill.
“Aubameyang tops the charts at the moment alongside Vardy and it is the Arsenal forward who is the marginal favourite,” added Hill.
