Son-Heung Min has shortened to a best price 9/2 in the Premier League top goalscorer betting odds market after another blank for Liverpool’s race leader Mohamed Salah.
Dry spell continues for Salah
Salah (1/6) still holds a two-goal advantage with 22 Premier League goals to Son’s 20, but the Egyptian King has now failed to score in seven of his last eight league matches, breaking his dry goal patch only once to put two past beleaguered Manchester United in a 4-0 win.
The start of the eight-match run was at the Emirates on March 16th, where Diogo Jota and Roberto Firmino were the scorers in a 2-0 win for Liverpool.
Going into that match, Salah was a best price 1/16 (1/25 in places), while Son was available at 66/1 as Cristian Romero and Harry Kane scored the goals in a same day 2-0 win at Brighton.

Son makes late play for Golden Boot
Just eight weeks on, Son has netted nine goals in his subsequent seven matches to close in on Salah at the top of the Premier League top goalscorer market. Cristiano Ronaldo has made a move of his own during the same period but remains a best price 80/1 with 18 goals to his name.
And with Salah now in sight, there is now the intriguing possibility of Harry Kane giving up penalty duties for Spurs’ final three league games (Liverpool only have two) starting with tomorrow’s North London Derby against Arsenal at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
While that feels unlikely for this particular game, the state of play in the league could well dictate Son getting penalties for the last day trip to already relegated Norwich City, and particularly if the outcome of the top 4 race has already been decided.
