Mohamed Salah scored a brace as Liverpool beat Brighton 3-1 on Wednesday night, their second win since lifting the English Premier League title.
The double moved Salah, who won last season's golden boot alongside Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and teammate Sadio Mane, to within a touching distance of the leading scorers.
Jamie Vardy and the Gabon international, who are on 22 and 20 respectively, had added to their tally on Tuesday night as they both scored in the 1-1 draw at Emirates to extend their lead.
Others who scored in midweek include Chelsea's Tammy Abraham, who scored the winner as Chelsea beat Crystal Palace 3-2 on Tuesday night and Raheem Sterling, who grabbed the fifth as Man City spanked Newcastle 5-0 on Thursday night.
With four matches to go, the battle for England's top marksman will most likely go down to the wire as the leading pack seems to be on a rich vein.
