Find out who has won the Golden Boot award, along with its history, given to the player who has scored the most goals

At the end of every season the Premier League presents the Golden Boot award to the player, or players, to have scored the most goals in that campaign.

History

The award has been presented since the start of the Premier League, in 1992/93.

Between 1994 and 2001 it was sponsored by Carling before Barclaycard took over until 2005.

Until 2016 the award was sponsored by the competition's title sponsor, Barclays, before in 2017 it was presented by Cadbury, the official snack partner of the Premier League.

In the event of joint top scorers, the accolade is shared, with awards for each player.

Past winners

The award is currently held by Mohamed Salah, whose 32 goals for Liverpool last season is a record in a 38-match campaign.

Arsenal's Thierry Henry has won the Golden Boot a record four times and is one of only two players to have won the award three years in a row, between 2003/04 and 2005/06.

Alan Shearer is the other, for Blackburn Rovers and Newcastle United, between 1994/95 and 1996/97.

Arsenal, Liverpool and Man Utd have had the most Golden Boots, with five each. Chelsea have had four.
