Top Contenders for the Premier League Golden Boot: March 2019
Hello and welcome Back to our assessment of the race to the Premier League Golden Boot. At the start of March, the Premier League table is slowly starting to take shape, however, it is still a two horse race to the top right now. Even though Liverpool is currently leading the race, Manchester City are just a point behind and as such, March promises to be full of excitement and might even be decisive to the title race.
The race to the Premier League Golden Boot has picked up the pace as well and the top 5 contenders are separated by a goal each. With 10 more games to be played from now and until the end of the season, each player has a chance to strengthen his chances and only time will tell if the player leading the race now will reign supreme at the end of the season. For now, let us take a look at the top ten contenders for the Premier League Golden Boot at the start of March 2019.
#10 Paul Pogba (France, Manchester United)
Goals Scored - 11
The Frenchman is enjoying a new lease of life under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Manchester United. Ever since the Norwegian has taken over the reigns at Old Trafford, Paul Pogba has found his form back. He has been fantastic for Manchester United in the past couple of months and it is only fitting that Pogba finds himself among the contenders for the Golden Boot right now.
Pogba started the month by assisting Marcus Rashford to score the only goal of the game in a 1-0 win over Leicester City. He followed that up with a fine brace in the game against Fulham, helping United win 3-0. After injuries forced United to stutter to a 0-0 draw against Liverpool, Pogba picked up another assist in the midweek game against Crystal Palace but failed to add to his tally.
At the start of March, the Frenchman has 11 goals and 9 assists from 25 games so far. He is the only central midfielder in this list and has registered 64 shots, 44 of which have been on target. He is currently 10th in the race to the Premier League Golden Boot and is 7 goals behind the man who leads this race.
