The Premier League Golden Boot is a yearly football award that is given to footballers who score the most goals in a Premier league season. The winners are also given £1000 for each goal they have scored in the season.

The first person to win the Premier League Golden Boot was Teddy Sheringham during the 1992-93 season. Arsenal F.C.'s Thierry Henry has won the award 4 times and currently holds the record for the most Golden Boots wins in the history of Premier League. Only two players have won the award for 3 consecutive (back-to-back) years, namely Thierry Henry and Alan Shearer. Most recently (2018-19), the award was won and shared by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Sadio Mané and Mohamed Salah, all of whom scored 22 goals.

The first international players to win the Premier League Golden Boot were Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink and Dwight Yorke during the 1998-99 season.
