Ranking the Top 20 Contenders for the Premier League Golden Boot

As the 2014-15 Premier League campaign draws closer, we take a look at the men who will be tasked with firing their club to glory and capable of winning the Golden Boot award for the forthcoming season.

Last year, Liverpool's Luis Suarez won the award, as he netted 31 goals in 33 games. He, of course, has since departed for Barcelona, meaning a new player will be picking up the award come season's end.

The highest scorer remaining from last term is Suarez's old team-mate, Daniel Sturridge.

In our slideshow, the players are ranked partly (and most importantly) on their ability to find the net consistently but also the nature of their own team: how good they are offensively, how many chances they create as a whole and what kind of supply line is in place for the forwards.

In addition, last season's goal tally is noted, and the players' production over the past few years is taken in line with increasing age, development and appearance numbers.

Here are our top 20 contenders, with Sturridge himself of course featuring high up.
