Harry Kane sporting the yellow Tottenham Hotspur kit.  Big smile on his face.  Top goalscorer. Over the last few games of the 2016/17 English Premier League season, Harry Kane of Tottenham Hotspur went on a goal scoring rampage. The result? A total of 29 goals over the course of the season, which was enough for him to comfortably win the league's Golden Boot award.

Can Kane repeat his feat this year? There will be some stiff competition in the form of names such as Romelu Lukaku, Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus. Lukaku looked to be a lock to win the Golden Boot last season until Kane decided to score practically every time that he touched the ball.

Other names that are considered possibilities to win the EPL goalscoring title include Diego Costa, Alexis Sanchez and Alexandre Lacazette.
