They do not play again this season

After his hat-trick at Chelsea, can Man Citys Sergio Aguero clinch the Premier League Golden Boot? While Leicester and Tottenham focus on English footballs top prize, up to five players also have their sights set on another award. Cameron Sutton Steelers Jersey .Agueros treble at Stamford Bridge lifted him to within one goal of leading marksman Harry Kane on Saturday, before Leicesters Jamie Vardy joined the Tottenham man on top of the pile with his 22nd goal of the season against West Ham. Evertons Romelu Lukaku and even Vardys team-mate Riyad Mahrez also have eyes on the summit.  So who will join the likes of Alan Shearer, Thierry Henry and Cristiano Ronaldo in lifting the top-goalscorer gong? Here, we take an in-depth look at the contest... Previous Golden Boot winners Season Player Team Goals 2014/15 Sergio Aguero Man City 26 2013/14 Luis Suarez Liverpool 31 2012/13 Robin van Persie Man Utd 26 2011/12 Robin van Persie Arsenal 30 2010/11 Dimitar Berbatov Man Utd 20 Carlos Tevez Man City 20 State of playTottenhams Kane and Leicesters Vardy lead the way with 22 goals. Kane will have the opportunity to reclaim the outright lead on Monday Night Football when Spurs face Stoke, while Vardy will miss the Foxes next outing at Swansea due to suspension, following his red card against West Ham.  Harry Kane shares the lead in the Golden Boot race with 22 goals Aguero is just one back, while Everton frontman Lukaku is on 18. The latters goals appear to have dried up following his breath-taking start to the campaign. Mahrez, meanwhile, completes the quintet on 16 goals having handed over the goalscoring mantle to Foxes team-mate Vardy in recent weeks.  Golden Boot race Player Team Goals Jamie Vardy Leicester 22 Harry Kane Tottenham 22 Sergio Aguero Man City 21 Romelu Lukaku Everton 18 Riyad Mahrez Leicester 16 Remaining fixturesAhead of Monday Night Football, Kane and Aguero have five matches remaining to add to their respective tallies. However, Mahrez has just four games remaining and Vardy - due to his suspension at Swansea - has a maximum of three fixtures left.Kanes Tottenham travel away to Stoke, Chelsea and Newcastle in their final five games and welcome West Brom and Southampton to White Hart Lane. That run of games could benefit Kane, with 12 of his 22 goals coming on the road for Mauricio Pochettinos side. Will Vardy or Mahrez add the Golden Boot to a potential Premier League winners medal? Lukaku also has five games to play - his 18 goals have been evenly split at home and away. Thirteen of Agueros 21 goals have come at the Etihad Stadium, but he will not have the luxury of home comforts, with three of Manchester Citys final five games coming on the road.  Remaining fixtures Harry Kane Jamie Vardy & Mahrez Sergio Aguero Romelu Lukaku Stoke (a) - - - - - Newcastle (a) Liverpool (a) West Brom (h) Swansea (h) (Vardy sus) Stoke (h) - Chelsea (a) Man Utd (a) Soton (a) Bmouth (h) Soton (h) Everton (h) Arsenal (h) Leicester (a) - - - Sunderland (a) Newcastle (a) Chelsea (a) Swansea (a) Norwich (h) Repeat performance?Aguero would win the Golden Boot if these five players repeated their goalscoring feats against their remaining opponents from earlier this season. The Man City striker scored five goals against Newcastle and, while he didnt net against his teams other remaining opponents earlier this season, that would take him to 26 goals. Vardy would finish second if he repeats the two goals he scored against Manchester United and Chelsea, while Kane and Lukaku would be tied fourth. Kane scored just once against Spurs five remaining opponents, while Lukaku notched an impressive five goals in Evertons fixtures against Liverpool, Bournemouth, Leicester, Sunderland and Norwich. Will Vardy or Mahrez add the Golden Boot to a potential Premier League winners medal? Mahrez, meanwhile, would remain fifth despite scoring six goals in the corresponding fixtures first time around. It appears the Algerian may have too big a gap to bridge.

Is Manuel Pellegrini going to rest him? He took him off with five minutes to go against Chelsea and hes had muscle injuries in the past.As for Lukaku, I think he might just have a bit too much to do. Sky Sports pundit Graeme Souness verdictThere might be an element with Aguero that he needs to play to be at his best. Strikers have to be at their sharpest, at it all the time. Looking at his shape, I think hes someone who needs to be worked all the time and cant be rested too much.Id like to think as well hes someone who wouldnt want to miss a training session or a game, knocking on the managers door, saying he wants to be part of everything going on. Who do you think will hold their nerve and claim this seasons Golden Boot?

In the final minute of play in Winnipegs 2-1 victory over the Montreal Canadiens on Sunday, Gallagher was roughed up by three different Jets players, preventing him from leaving the offensive zone. With their net empty, and an extra player on the ice for a Canadiens team looking for the equalizer, Gallagher was kept on the wrong side of the blue-line for roughly 20 seconds, keeping his team from entering Winnipegs zone. Gallagher was crosschecked into the net by Zach Bogosian, punched and then elbowed in the head by goaltender Al Montoya in the crease, and then elbowed again by defenceman Jacob Trouba. There was no call on the play. "There could have been five penalties there," said head coach Michel Therrien, who watched the replay before speaking to the media. "Were definitely going to ask the league for explications. Its very frustrating. It could have given us the chance to tie the game." But Montoya, who made 30 saves for his 10th win of the season, wasnt buying any of it, and suggested the Habs forward was doing his best to stay in the zone and draw a penalty. "No. 11?" Montoya asked, apparently not knowing Gallagher by name. "We were all caught up. The referees saw that. They were there. You know he was doing something for a reason." After the game, defenceman Josh Gorges spoke to the press on Gallaghers behalf, calling the five-foot-nine forward too "fired up" and "heated" to address questions about the games final minute. "I have to be careful with what I say," said Gorges. "It was pretty evident they were not allowing him to get out of the zone. He took a punch to the head from the goalie, got tripped up from the defenceman, and the guy coming off the bench gave him another shot." To make matters worse, Gallagher made three trips to the penalty box during the game, for roughing, holding, and tripping. He finished the game with two shots, six penalty-minutes and a minus-1 rating. "I cant comment on how (the referees) feel towards any one individual player," said Gorges. "I dont know if theres a grudge or something. Its too bad." With the game tied at 1-1 going into the third period, Michael Frolik scored the eventual winner at 1:04 after a Winnipeg dump-in was mishandled by netminder Carey Price. Thee Jets captain Andrew Ladd took the puck off Prices stick, and found a streaking Frolik in front of the net. James Conner Womens Jersey. The Canadiens (29-21-6) kept the pressure on Montoya and the Jets in the final frame, but couldnt benefit from two power plays. Winnipeg held on for their eighth win in 10 games since Paul Maurice took over as head coach on Jan. 12. The Jets (27-25-5) are still in last place in the Central Division, but are only four points off the final playoff spot in the Western Conference. Winnipeg has now won four of its last five on the road, and beat the Canadiens for the first time in seven encounters. "Weve made some pretty big strides," said Maurice. "Theres still a lot to cover. Its what we want our team to look like. We want to define what the Winnipeg Jets game is. And thats going to take a long time to do. "Were big and were fast and were young. And we want to use that. We want to be aggressive with our size and our speed." The Jets benefited from good speed by Tobias Enstrom in the second period when he opened the scoring at 9:13 on a great individual effort. The Winnipeg defenceman carried the puck along the end boards, circled the net and squeezed a shot under Prices glove on the wraparound for his sixth of the year. After hitting two posts in the period, the Canadiens got their equalizer courtesy of a quick release wrister by Brian Gionta at 17:06. While playing 4-on-4 hockey, the Canadiens captain took a pass from Tomas Plekanec on his backhand, quickly switched to the forehand and fired home a sharp shot into the roof of the net. And despite the incident with Gallagher in the dying seconds, Gorges thought the Canadiens shouldnt have left it so late. "Thats not what happened tonight, that wasnt the difference," said Gorges of the altercation. "But it was a frustrating end to the game." Price, playing his second game in as many days, made 33 saves in the loss. NOTES: Michael Bournival was back in the Canadiens lineup after missing Saturdays game with the flu.
