Isak has already scored twice in four games for the Tyneside club this season, however both came on the first day of the season in a 5-1 hammering of Aston Villa.

Haaland has received 16% of market bets, with Isak receiving 13% of the money. Mohamed Salah and Darwin Nunez of Liverpool come in second and third in the betting, with 8% and 7% of the bets, respectively.

It’s reasonable to assume that anyone who wants to dethrone the Norwegian striker will need to have a season to remember. Last season, the 23-year-old scored 35 goals in his rookie season. While some supporters feared he would not be able to maintain his success this season, the juggernaut has already scored seven goals in five league games.

Tottenham fans, like Newcastle fans, expect their own player to outperform Haaland. 21% of Spurs fans who have bet on the market this season have backed their own striker Son-Heung Min, while 18% believe Haaland will win back-to-back titles.
