Premier League Golden Boot race: Danny Ings closes in on top spot as race heats up

The race for the English Premier League Golden Boot promises to be a closely contested affair, unlike the league crown that Liverpool lifted on Thursday night.

Danny Ings scored a double on Sunday as Southampton crushed Watford 3-1 to take his tally for the season to 18, one behind Leicester's Jamie Vardy. 

On a weekend where only two Premier League matches were played, it was the Southampton forward who took advantage of his rivals' commitments in the FA Cup to move close to the top and keep his dreams of winning the Golden Boot alive. 

With plenty of matches still to come, the battle can go down to the wire as there are no clear favorites at the moment.

Only three goals separate the top five on top scorers' chart, with seven matches to play.
