Raheem Sterling has been cut to 6/1 in bwin’s Premier League top scorer odds after hitting a hat-trick in Manchester City’s 5-0 romp at West Ham.
The England winger finished joint-sixth last season with a tally of 17 but has made an early statement of intent to climb the table this term.
“It’s early days,” Sterling told CityTV. “It’s about enjoying it and keeping winning – that’s the most important thing.
“It feels good but the important thing was starting well as a team and getting the win and the three points.”
Two-time Golden Boot winner Harry Kane also hit the ground running with a late brace as Tottenham beat Aston Villa 3-1 and is now 3/1 clear favourite.
The 26-year-old was delighted to break his duck at Spurs’ new stadium, netting for the first time in four attempts back in N17.
“It’s something I’ve been thinking about for a while,” said Kane, who got married during the off-season.
“I missed a few games towards the back end of last year and had the summer to think about what that would be like, so it was nice to do it and help the team to get a victory.
“I had four weeks off, the most I’ve had off in a few years now. I’ve had a good pre-season, been here from the start, worked with the team and everyone’s feeling good.
“We’ve still got work to do, I’ve still got work to do in terms of fitness and things like that, but playing games will only help.
“I feel in a good place and hopefully I can continue doing what we’ve done.”
Marcus Rashford is rated at 12/1 in bwin’s Premier League top scorer odds following his double in Manchester United’s 4-0 triumph over Chelsea.
Ashley Barnes also netted twice as Burnley beat Southampton 3-0 and he is available at 80/1 in this market.
