Every good Fantasy Football team is built around goalscorers. The 2020/21 Premier League season will be no different, but how do you possibly shoehorn the three forwards you want into one squad along with key goalscoring midfielders?
To get a balanced line-up, there’s very little room for manoeuvre and there is going to have to be some give and take on the selection front. To help you make your decision, we’ve taken a look at how bookmakers have been pricing up the Top Premier League goalscorer markets ahead of the new season.

Mo Salah (Liverpool): Salah is the 5/1 favourite to top the scoring charts. He got 19 last season in Liverpool’s charge to the title, but interestingly that only put him fifth in the list of most goals. Having netted 22 in the 2018/19 season, the Egyptian is as consistent as they come and is a midfielder again in FPL.
Harry Kane (Tottenham): Kane’s 18-goal haul last season came despite time out injured. As team captain, he will be Tottenham’s main man once again and on penalty duties throughout the season. It’s no surprise to see him at 11/2 to be top scorer.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Arsenal): Arsenal fans rejoiced at the prospect of Aubameyang staying and at 6/1 he looks a great shout to be the Premier League’s top scorer. He has scored 22 in each of the last two seasons and can flourish in a full campaign under Mikel Arteta. He has been moved into the midfield list this year.
Sergio Aguero (Manchester City): Injury meant Aguero spent a significant chunk of last season on the sidelines. He had surpassed the 20+ goal mark in the previous five seasons for City. Will he return the same player? 7/1 says he finishes as top score.
Timo Werner (Chelsea): Chelsea new boy Werner is 9/1 to take the Premier League by storm. The big question mark over the German is whether he will be used in rotation with Olivier Giroud and Tammy Abraham. Time will tell on Werner.
Raheem Sterling (Manchester City): Like Salah and Aubameyang, Sterling is one of the midfielders who can bring a lot of goals to the table. Seasons of 17 and 20 goals in the last two Premier League campaigns show his goalscoring has improved and he is 12/1 to top the charts.
Sadio Mane (Liverpool): Forty goals across the last two seasons have made Mane a lock for many fantasy managers. At 14/1, he is a big price to repeat the joint golden boot winning season of 2018/19. As a midfielder in fantasy football, he can bring points to the table.
Jamie Vardy (Leicester City): Last season’s top scorer with 23 goals, Vardy provided exceptional value for Fantasy Football managers. Will his ageing legs be up for another season? He is 16/1 to repeat his Golden Boot season.
Danny Ings (Southampton): Ings provided a relatively cheap option in the forward line last year and duly delivered 22 goals for the Saints. He might be unglamorous, but he is an each-way odds at 20/1
Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford & Mason Greenwood (Manchester United): At 20/1 for all three, take your pick of United’s most likely leading goalscorer. Interestingly, Martial has been reclassified as a forward and Rashford and Greenwood as midfielders. The problem with all three is that the goals are likely to be shared.
