Round 37. Harry Kane: 25 goals. Jamie Vardy: 24 goals. Sergio Aguero: 24 goals. One game to play, just one goal the difference.

As we approach the final round of the 2015-2016 English Premier League season, the race for the golden boot is heating up.

Harry Kane leads the pack on 25, followed by Jamie Vardy and Sergio Aguero both on 24. Kane is currently the favourite to be given the famous award.

The fixtures are in favour of his club, Tottenham, also. Round 38 features Tottenham Hotspur versus Newcastle United, Manchester City versus Swansea City and Leicester City versus Chelsea.

Swansea, who are currently in form, can cause a last match upset for the sky blues. Additionally, champions Leicester City are due to face former champions Chelsea, who are coming off a 1-1 draw with Liverpool. However, the Blues definitely possess the capability to defeat the champions in the final round.

Kane and his whites are favourites to beat Newcastle United, and it is likely that Kane can seal his golden boot by netting in the last game of the season.

Taking a look at the stats, Kane has played 3278 minutes this season, thus scoring one goal every 131 minutes. Vardy has played a total of 3049 minutes creating an average of one goal per 127 minutes.

Finally, Aguero has played a total of 2284 minutes thus making his average one goal per 95 minutes. The race for the shiny piece of gold is definitely on.

After a spectacular season from all three talented footballers, who will finish the season as the English Premier League’s highest goalscorer of 2015-2016?
