Mohamed Salah is 3/10 in bwin’s Premier League top scorer odds heading into the final round of fixtures, with the Liverpool ace two clear at the summit.
Defending champion Salah managed to extend his advantage during last weekend’s 3-2 success at Newcastle, before being carried off with a head injury.
The Egypt winger was forced to sit out the Reds’ Champions League triumph over Barcelona on Tuesday night, due to concussion rules, but is eligible to face Wolves at Anfield this Sunday.
Jurgen Klopp said of the midweek match: “He feels okay, but it is not good enough from a medical point of view. That’s all. He’s desperate, everything, but we can’t do it.”
Team-mate Sadio Mane is one of a trio of players two off the pace and he can be backed at 16/1 for Golden Boot glory.
Sergio Aguero is rated the most likely to make up ground, being quoted at 15/4 prior to Manchester City’s trip to Brighton.
Arsenal forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is another on the 20-mark after netting from the penalty spot in a 1-1 draw with Brighton and is available at 14/1 here.
The Gabon international is still determined to give it a go when the Gunners visit Burnley on Sunday.
He said: “When you’re a striker, it means a lot. If you want to be the best, you have to win the Golden Boot.
“It’s a tough battle. We have great strikers in the Premier League. They are so consistent all season. They score and they score and they score.
“The best strikers are just waiting to score all season. That’s what makes them so special. But I am a guy who is confident and I know I can do it.”
Jamie Vardy is four behind Salah and quoted at 250/1 in bwin’s Premier League top scorer odds ahead of Leicester’s clash with Chelsea.
