Premier League prediction: Alan Shearer's pick for the 2020/21 top scorer award

Alan Shearer has backed Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah to win the 2020/21 top scorers' award.  

The Premier League's all-time leading scorer believes the Egyptians will easily beat competition from the likes of Timo Werner, Jamie Vardy, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Sergio Aguero, Harry Kane, and Sadio Mane to the accolade. 

"I think it will be the usual suspects that will be in there, I don't see anyone upsetting that," he said during an interview with the Premier League. 

"Timo Werner, I was really impressed with him the other evening I know he did not score but I'm fairly confident that he will get off the mark soon and he will score goals for Chelsea. 

"Vardy had got two (against West Brom), Aubameyang is off the mark Aguero will score against Harry Kane will score goals," 

"Sadio Mane, without a doubt, but this season I'm going to go for Mo Salah. As a center-forward, you need to get off to a good start, get a goal early on, so for him to get three (against Leeds), I'm going to go for Mo Salah this year to win the Golden Boot," 

All the leading marksmen are off the mark in the new campaign, and it promises to be an exciting one.
