Under the leadership of new manager Antonio Conte, Chelsea fans will be hoping to see a lot more goals next season. But is it worth backing a Chelsea forward to walk away with the golden boot award? We take a look at which Chelsea players could challenge Sergio Aguero; the bookies favourite to outscore everyone next season.

Diego Costa

As the transfer deadline starts to draw to a close there are still rumours linking Costa with a move away from Stamford Bridge. The 27-year-old went on a remarkable run during his first season at Chelsea where he scored 20 goals in only 26 league games. Last season didn’t go too well though for the burly forward and he only managed 12 goals in 28 appearances.

Paddy Power is backing Costa to be the league’s top goal scorer this time round at odds of 16/1. If the player does indeed stay at Stamford Bridge and maintain his spot as the club’s first choice forward then he could be a great outside bet with those odds. A return to the form he showed back in the 2014/15 season would surely see him net a minimum of 20 goals and without any European football Costa will be fresh and chomping at the bit every weekend.  

Michy Batshuayi

New Belgian signing Batshuayi will need time to adapt to the premier league but he could end up being one of the signings of the season. At 22-years-of-age he is not yet the finished product but still has a decent goal scoring returns. During his two years at Marseille he scored 26 goals in 62 appearances and before that he notched up 39 goals in 97 appearances for Standard Liege.

The bookies interestingly have him down at 16/1, the same odds as Costa, to be the league’s top goal scorer next season but one feels that the future of Costa will play a big part in the amount of game time Batshuayi will see.

Chelsea are also thought to be close to making a bid for Everton forward Romelu Lukaku. The ex-Chelsea man has been the subject of interest from a few clubs this summer but the transfer fee which Everton are holding out for could be too much. If, however, Chelsea do manage to bring the Belgian back to Stamford Bridge, he would be a fantastic shout for the golden boot award with Paddy Power backing him at 12/1.


At the moment it’s hard to say who will lead the Chelsea frontline this season but with the bookies not favouring the Chelsea forwards, perhaps a cheeky punt on one of them as an outside bet could leave you smiling come the end of the season.
