All eyes will be on one man today in the Burnley v Arsenal game

The race for the Premier League Golden Boot comes to a conclusion today and there are still four players that have the chance to be crowned the top scorer this season.

Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah is the current leader on 22 goals, two ahead of Man City’s Sergio Aguero, Liverpool’s Sadio Mane and our very own Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Salah is obviously the clear favourite by virtue of the fact he already has the goals banked and for him to be taken over it will require a hat-trick from one of his rivals and for the Egyptian to fire blanks.

But Liverpool are playing Wolves today and they will not be easy to break down and you have to think that the nerves and tension will be at their maximum today. It will not be easy for either for Salah or Mane to find the back of the net.

Man City, on paper, have the easier task at Brighton but it would be folly to assume that Aguero will run riot against the Seagulls.

And of course, Aubameyang will have just as difficult a task as the others playing away at Burnley and that is if Unai Emery even selects him, there is no guarantee of that.

But we are talking a quartet of top-class strikers and any one of them has the capabilities of going on the rampage and for me personally, I will be watching Auba with eagle eyes today, I would love it if he repeated his heroics at Valencia against the Clarets.

I just have to say that because Arsenal have won the last nine meetings with Burnley, the price of an Arsenal win at 2.155 from MustardBet looks amazing value. Get on it!

So, for me, today I will be watching the game with eager anticipation and keeping my fingers crossed that our Gabon superstar has a huge day.


    1. This season have been unpredictable and I love the birst of surprises…will like to see mane,aguero, and aubameyang score two each and Salah go blank??….four golden boot winner.

  1. ..a man my eye will be on is Ozil

    provided he pulls his finger out (then) our striker(s) will be assured the service that they deserve and provided he does the same in Baku then our front line offensive should prove irrepressible.

    1. .. a team coming 5th or 6th and auba winning the golden boot somehow doesn’t add up – i’m not worried in the slightest about that boot it’s just a distraction from an arsenal view point. seems to be the younger fan base – having never ever experienced arsenal success (propper) would happily grasp at anything even as it appears out of some sense of desperate and bogus reality.

      Unequivocally and with the greatest respect for all that the G.Boot stands for it ought rightly to go firstly to either salah, mane, or aguero – That our man *deserves it would only go against the spirit of the GB award and in particular what it stands for.

      1. Your comment doesn,t make sense to me,surely the team,s position has nothing to do with the GB?it being an individual award,the player who deserves it has to be the player who scored the most goals irrespective of his team finishing no?I guess you’ll disagree?

        1. @Tissiam
          by analogy H.Kane won the WC golden boot – but in my opinion it carried little weight as him winning it did little to effect the outcome of where the “3 Lions” finished up. I’m suggesting it [means more] when the goals you’ve scored consolidate your teams finish rather than anything else. However, given that PEA gets to share this honor with mane & aguero makes his receiving the accolade much more noteworthy and credible. Let’s not forget his peers 22 x scored catapulted each mane and aguero’s team into champions league football – that’s the point. I’d rather apply some honesty and perspective around the reality of AFC’s 2018/19 campaign.

  2. I’m enjoying watching Bielek right now. He’s bigger than I thought and looks comfortable on the right of a back three. Seems to consistently look to pass forward. Obviously a big jump from League One to PL but it’s been done before. One to watch.
