Aguero Now Joint Favourite To Retain Premier League Top Goalscorer Crown
Sergio Aguero netted two more Premier League goals for Manchester City in their 2-2 draw with West Ham on Saturday and now has scored twelve Premier League goals so far this season, and just lies four off leader Jamie Vardy.
As a result, Aguero is now 5/2 joint favourite from 9/2 to retain the coveted crown. Jamie Vardy netted another goal in Leicester’s 3-0 win over Stoke and now he is the clear leader at the top of the 2015/16 Top Goalscorer table having scored 16 goals. The Leicester City player is now 5/1 from 11/2 to remain on top come the end of the season.
Everton’s Romelu Lukaku failed to hit the back of the net at the weekend but only remains one off leader Vardy.
Lukaku is now the 5/2 joint favourite alongside Aguero, but has been eased from 2/1.
Last year’s runner up Harry Kane scored in Tottenham’s 3-1 win over Crystal Palace and is now just three off the lead, having already scored thirteen Premier League goals so far this season. The England striker remains 4/1 to go one better than his second place last season.
Watford’s Odion Ighalo netted again in their 2-1 win over Newcastle on Saturday and now has scored fourteen Premier League goals, and as a result his price has shortened into 7/1 from 15/2 to win the Top Goalscorer crown, whilst Olivier Giroud who was taken off in the 22nd minute against Chelsea that saw the Gunners lose 1-0 has been eased back out to 10/1 from 9/1.
