Harry Kane has been promoted to 7/2 joint-favourite in bwin’s Premier League top scorer odds after heading in Tottenham’s late winner at West Brom.
That was the 27-year-old’s 150th top-flight goal and put the Spurs striker on seven for the season, one off the lead shared by four players.
Jose Mourinho was full of praise for Kane after that 88th-minute decider, hailing his all-round contribution to the team.
“When you go to stats in relation to the strikers, I always say that the stats should be how many goals has a striker scored, and what he did for his team in the matches where he didn’t score,” said Mourinho.
“And many of the strikers that history will show an incredible number of goals that they score, plus zero.
“Harry Kane you have to say has this many goals, this many assists, this number of balls recovered, this number of duels won.
“This number of balls that he saved his team in a defensive set-piece. This is Harry Kane. It’s goals plus this and this and this and that.
“For me, it’s not one more goal or one less goal, it’s about what he is as a player.”
Teammate Son Heung-min drew a blank at The Hawthorns but is still one ahead of Kane and can be backed at 10/1 for Golden Boot glory.
Watkins enjoys double delight
Mohamed Salah is the other market leader on 7/2 in bwin’s Premier League top scorer odds after moving up to eight with a well-taken penalty in Liverpool’s 1-1 draw at Manchester City.
Jamie Vardy joined the pacesetters after scoring one spot-kick and having another saved in Leicester’s 1-0 win over Wolves and he is 5/1 to repeat last season’s success.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin completes the leading quartet and is quoted at 9/1 after missing out in Everton’s 3-1 loss to Manchester United.
Aston Villa forward Ollie Watkins has been cut to 20/1 following his double in Sunday’s 3-0 victory at Arsenal.
The 24-year-old, who hit a hat-trick in Villa’s 7-2 thrashing of Liverpool last month, is on six but admitted to expecting a mixed reaction from family members to his Emirates Stadium exploits.
“I’m not sure my grandad or uncle Baz are going to be too happy!” Watkins told Sky Sports. “They are Arsenal fans and I am an Arsenal fan myself.
“But I’m buzzing. I am sure they will love it really. I am over the moon.”
Timo Werner grabbed his fourth Premier League goal in Chelsea’s 4-1 defeat of Sheffield United and is a 10/1 chance.
