Mohamed Salah

The other five names in the frame are Kevin De Bruyne, Leroy Sane and David Silva (all Manchester City), Mo Salah (Liverpool) and Harry Kane (Tottenham). They face competition from Kane, Marcus Rashford and Ryan Sessegnon.

His assists tally suggests he's not been overly selfish in front of goal and is the firm favourite to win the Golden Boot as he leads a certain Lilywhites striker by four strikes now.

Salah's biggest threat regarding the Premier League's golden boot race is from Spurs centre-forward Kane, who has claimed the previous two editions, the Londoner heading into the final six matches is presently on 25 goals.

German global Sane has been directly involved in 21 goals this season for City, scoring nine times and adding a further 12 assists, which is second only to De Bruyne.

His City counterpart Ederson has proved to be an excellent addition for his club after the position proved a problem for manager Pep Guardiola last season.

His reward is a place on the Young Player of the Year shortlist. He has been instrumental in Fulham's push to reach the Premier League, scoring 14 times in the Sky Bet Championship.
