Raheem Sterling has been trimmed to 22/1 in bwin’s Premier League top scorer odds after hitting a hat-trick in Manchester City’s 3-1 win over Watford.
That took the England winger’s tally to 15 in this competition, three behind team-mate Sergio Aguero, who heads the betting on 3/2.
There was an offside debate over his first goal and his second was a tap-in, but Sterling’s third highlighted his skill as he weaved into the area, cut back and fired past Ben Foster.
Vincent Kompany said: “It’s incredible, because his first year at City was tough, and then from the moment Pep (Guardiola) came in, he just kicked on and went from strength to strength.
“For me, he is one of the best wingers in the world. He’s so important for us. To have the ability to unlock defences when they defend with so many bodies is the sign of a top, top, top player.”
Sadio Mane is seen as another lively outsider on 20/1 after moving up to 16 with a double strike in Liverpool’s 4-2 triumph over Burnley.
The Senegal international reached 50 goals for the club and has now netted in the Reds’ last six top-flight fixtures at Anfield.
Team-mate Mohamed Salah stayed on 17 and is 11/4 to repeat last season’s Golden Boot glory.
Kane continues to close in on top spot
Harry Kane can be backed at 333/100 to add to his 2016 and 2017 gongs after also moving one off the pace by scoring in Tottenham 2-1 defeat at Southampton.
Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is another on 17 after converting a penalty versus Manchester United and is quoted at 6/1 in bwin’s Premier League top scorer odds.
Eden Hazard is on 13 and available at 50/1 following his last-gasp equaliser for Chelsea against Wolves.
Raul Jimenez earlier put Wanderers in front with his 12th league goal of the campaign and is 66/1.
Jamie Vardy is on the same mark and can be backed at 66/1 too after bagging a brace as Leicester beat Fulham 3-1.
That took him to 101 strikes in all competitions for the club, having joined from Fleetwood for £1million in 2012.
New Foxes boss Brendan Rodgers said: “He is a wonderful striker and scored two very good goals.
“He is one of the best in this division if you get up the pitch and slide him in. He doesn’t need many chances to score.
“He’s a top-class striker. I’m very happy he is here. He’s tactically very good and starts off the press well.”
