Which players have won the Premier League Golden Boot? Who won the most?


The Premier League officially started in 1992, taking over as England’s top division.

In the 30 years since, some of the biggest names in world football have plied their trades in the Premier League, including some of the most prolific strikers in history. Players like Thierry Henry, Didier Drogba, Alan Shearer and Mohamed Salah have terrorized opposing defenses during their respective spells in the league, but who has won the most Golden Boots? And which player holds the record for most Premier League goals in a single season?

DAZN answers these questions below:

Who has won the most Premier League Gold Boot awards?

It may come as no surprise to fans who watched the Premier League in the early 2000s, but Thierry Henry holds the record for most Golden Boots with four.

Henry was the league’s top scorer in 2001-02, 2003-04, 2004-05 and 2005-06, while wearing Arsenal’s red and white shirt. The French star helped the Gunners win the Premier League title twice in those four seasons (01-02 and 03-04).

Who holds the record for most goals scored in a season in the Premier League?

Andy Cole and Alan Shearer scored 34 goals in consecutive campaigns (1993-94 and 1994-95, respectively), which remains the Premier League single-season goalscoring record.

However, Cole and Shearer enjoyed a 42-game season which was the norm for the Premier League until the 1995-96 campaign when the current 38-game fixture list became the norm.

Liverpool ace Mohamed Salah holds the single-season record of 38 games, having netted 32 times during the 2017-18 campaign to win his first of three Golden Boot awards.

In terms of goalscoring rate, Harry Kane’s 0.97 goals per game in 2016-17 is the standard bearer. Kane hit the rate by scoring 29 goals in 30 games that season.
