Mohamed Salah remains in pole position for the 2021/22 Castrol Golden Boot award, but his pursuers have been closing the gap.
It leaves the Liverpool star defending a five-goal lead with four matches remaining.
Golden Boot contenders
|Salah||22||TOT (H), AVL (A), SOU (A), WOL (H)|
|Ronaldo||17||BRE (H), BHA (A), CRY (A)|
|Son||17||LEI (H), LIV (A), ARS (H), BUR (H), NOR (A)|
|Jota||15||TOT (H), AVL (A), WOL (H), SOU (A)|
|Mane||14||TOT (H), AVL (A), SOU (A), WOL (H)|
Son will look to close the gap further over his next three outings, starting against Leicester City on Sunday, and then finish with a flourish against two of the bottom four clubs: Burnley and Norwich City.
He has netted seven goals in his last three home matches, including two hat-tricks, to move joint-second in the top scorers' list.
The Portuguese will aim to maintain his superb Old Trafford form when Brentford visit on Monday. But he has fewer matches remaining than both Salah and Son.
Salah won the Golden Boot outright in 2017/18 before sharing the award the following season.
He has already matched his 22-goal total from 2018/19 and only needs one more strike to match the winning tally for the last two campaigns.
