Below Are The 2023/24 Top Premier League Scorers

1. Erling Haaland (Man City – 27 Goals, 5 Assists)

Leading the pack is the Norwegian striker, Erling Haaland, wearing the sky-blue colours of Manchester City. Haaland scored 27 goals and provided 5 assists in 31 matches, showcasing his clinical finishing and ability to contribute to team play. After returning from a two-month hiatus due to a stress fracture in his foot, he maintained his position at the top of the 2023-24 goalscoring chart. Since he returned in February 2024, he continued his incredible form in the English top flight and helped City clinch their fourth consecutive league title, earning him the Golden Boot for two seasons in a row.



2. Cole Palmer - (Chelsea – 22 Goals, 11 Assists)

Surprisingly, securing the second spot is Cole Palmer. The rising star in the Premier League firmament has set the stage ablaze with his breathtaking performances for Chelsea under Mauricio Pochettino. The Man City academy graduate's flair, agility, and eye for goal have made him formidable in the opposition box. He scored 22 goals and registered 11 assists in 34 league matches for the Blues, earning him the player of the season award at Stamford Bridge.



3. Alexander Isak (Newcastle – 21 Goals, 2 Assists)

Bursting onto the scene with his blistering pace and impeccable technique, Newcastle's Alexander Isak continued his impact from the previous season with 21 goals and 2 assists. Despite being limited to 30 appearances due to injury, his knack for finding scoring opportunities and clinical finishing has elevated him among the league's elite marksmen, adding potency to Newcastle's attack as he earns praise from fans and pundits alike.

4. Phil Foden (Man City – 19 Goals, 8 Assists)

Premier League Player of the Year, Phil Foden from Manchester City, scored 19 goals and 8 assists in 35 league matches. The Manchester lad has proven to be a vital asset in City's attacking lineup this season. His knack for scoring goals and setting up opportunities for his teammates highlights his significance to the Cityzens. His brace against Man United in the derby showcased his immense potential to reach greater heights in the Premier League.

4. Ollie Watkins (Aston Villa – 19 Goals, 13 Assists)

Aston Villa's Ollie Watkins consistently scored goals and created opportunities for his teammates. With 19 goals and an impressive 13 assists in 37 matches, Watkins has proven to be a well-rounded striker under the leadership of Unai Emery. Thanks to Ollie's goal-scoring ability and talent for providing valuable assists, Villa secured the fourth spot in the Premier League table, an achievement unmatched by previous Villans.



4. Dominic Solanke (Bournemouth – 19 Goals, 3 Assists)

Dominic Solanke from Bournemouth consistently posed a goal-scoring threat, scoring 19 times and delivering 3 assists in 38 games. His pivotal role in Bournemouth's pursuit of increased competitiveness this season under Andoni Iraola cannot be overstated. Solanke's remarkable hat-trick in the 3-2 victory against Nottingham Forest at the City Ground just before Christmas Day was a testament to his significant improvement.

7. Mohamed Salah (Liverpool – 18 Goals, 10 Assists)

Liverpool's Egyptian king, Mohamed Salah, continued to dazzle with his goal-scoring prowess, netting 18 goals and providing 10 assists in 32 matches. His lethal combination of speed and precision consistently threatened opposing defences. Liverpool fans relied on him to propel their team to glory in what was Jurgen Klopp's final season in the English top flight. However, his form dipped towards the end of the campaign, which many argue was due to his absence for a few weeks during the 2024 Africa Cup of Nations, where he sustained a hamstring injury. He ranks high on the list of Liverpool's best forwards of all-time.



8.  Son Heung-Min (Tottenham – 17 Goals, 10 Assists)

Tottenham's South Korean talisman, Son Heung-Min, has been a key figure in his team's attacking line-up under Ange Postecoglou. Boasting seventeen goals and nine assists, Son's versatility and goal-scoring instincts were crucial for Spurs, especially after the departure of England captain Harry Kane but it was not enough to help them secure a Champions League place, with the Lilywhites finishing the season in the fifth spot.

9. Jarrod Bowen (West Ham – 16 Goals, 6 Assists)

Securing the join-ninth position is West Ham's dynamic forward, Jarrod Bowen, who has been a revelation in the Premier League. With 16 goals and 6 assists in 34 matches, Bowen's contributions played a pivotal role in West Ham's quest for a successful campaign after they landed the Europa Conference League last season. He was a driving force for the Hammers upfront and is guaranteed a place in Gareth Southgate's squad for Euro 2024 in Germany.

9. Jean-Philippe Mateta (Crystal Palace – 16, 5 Assists)

Jean-Philippe Mateta unexpectedly surged into the top goal scorers of the 2023-24 season. Following the arrival of Oliver Glasner after Roy Hodgson stepped down, Mateta began finding the net with astounding consistency. He finished the campaign with 16 goals and 5 assists in 35 league matches, boasting a shooting accuracy of 63%. Notably, he scored 12 of his 16 goals with his right foot.


9. Bukayo Saka (Arsenal) - 16 Goals (9 Assists)

Sharing the joint 9th spot is England winger Bukayo Saka, who has been a standout for Arsenal in the 2023/24 season, impressing with 16 goals and 9 assists in 35 league games. His speed, control, and intelligence have troubled defenders, while his impact on Arsenal's attack has earned him a spot among the season's top scorers. Saka symbolises Arsenal's future hopes in the league.



As the 2023-24 season ended, Erling Haaland emerged as the clear frontrunner for the Golden Boot, leading by a significant margin. His dominance throughout the season, with each goal, solidified his position as the inevitable recipient of this prestigious award.
