ROMELU LUKAKU is the new favourite to win the Golden Boot after making his second Chelsea debut against Arsenal on Sunday.
The Belgium international ran the Gunners ragged at the Emirates as he scored the opener and proved to be a handful all afternoon.
Lukaku had the simple task of tapping in Reece James' cross in the first half and would have had a second goal if it wasn't for a spectacular save from Bernd Leno.
And after just his first Premier League game of the season, Lukaku has leapfrogged former favourites Harry Kane and Mo Salah in bookies' odds market.
Lukaku is 3/1 favourite with William Hill to bag the award after his £97.5million move from Inter Milan.
Liverpool's main man Salah is the second favourite at 4/1 ahead of Spurs' talisman Harry Kane (6/1).
Salah scored on the opening weekend against Norwich but failed to find the back of the net against Brunley.
While Kane has some catching up to do as he's only played 18 minutes of Premier League action for Spurs as uncertainty continues to surround his future, with a potential move to Man City looming.
