With the season finally over, it’s time to look at the EPL top scorers.
The pace-setter Erling Haaland didn’t drop off and looks set for a place in the EPL top scorers all time list if things stay on track. Most betting sites will already have him as the heavy favourite to do the same thing next season.

EPL Top Scorers in History
There are 34 members of The 100 Club – a small group of players who have scored over a century of goals in the Premier League. Many of them did it over long careers and hundreds of matches.
Of those 34, Thierry Henry had the best goals to game ratio by scoring an average of 0.68 goals in each of his 258 Premier League matches for Arsenal.
Of course, Henry was more than just a goalscorer and would regularly be amongst the top assisters in the division.
If Erling Haaland stays fit and maintains his rate of 1.02 goals per game, he’ll join the club within two years. Keep it up even longer and he’ll find a place on the EPL top scorers all time list.
But the Manchester City man has some way to go right now. Alan Shearer is the highest scorer in EPL history with 260 goals across 15 years for Blackburn and Newcastle.
Only Sergio Aguero has scored more Premier League hat-tricks than Shearer. The Magpies legend bagged 11 in total.
In 1999, he became just the second EPL player to score five goals in a single game in a 9-0 win against Sheffield Wednesday.
Harry Kane is the biggest threat to Shearer’s crown. The Spurs man is on track to write his name atop the EPL top scorers all time list. He’s on 213 for Tottenham after bagging 30 in what was a miserable campaign for his club.
Kane is one of the most consistent goalscorers in Europe. The Spurs man scored in 25 different Premier League matches last season. That’s a record across a 38-game season.
EPL Top Scorers Predictions
It won’t be a surprise to read some of the names on the list of likely EPL top scorers for next season.
Of course, the man at the top of the list is Erling Haaland. The Norwegian forward enjoyed an excellent first season in England.
He set a record for the most goals scored in a single Premier League season with 35 from 34 games. Haaland will surely be amongst the EPL top scorers for as long as he’s at the club.
But he won’t be alone. Harry Kane will certainly be in the mix. He’s less than 50 goals away from breaking the all-time record. Kane has averaged 21+ goals in each of his last 10 seasons in the Premier League.
There will be plenty of other candidates to choose from. Mohamed Salah has won the Premier League Golden Boot on three different occasions. He was also the top assist maker in the league last year.
Other candidates include Gabriel Jesus, Ollie Watkins and Marcus Rashford.
