Rickie Lambert is hoping he can hang around at the top of the goal scoring charts for as long as possible.
The Southampton star is on four goals with a number of players, one off Manchester United's Robin van Persie.
The 30-year-old is hoping he can continue banging the goals in for the newly promoted Saints having helped them to their first win of the season over Aston Villa at the weekend.
"If I'm up there with Van Persie at the end of the season I'll be happy," he said.
"I'm very proud to be up at the top of the leading scorers, but it's only five games in. The Golden Boot is a massive achievement. I'll give it a go.
"But I'm just trying to help my team get three points.
"This is the first time I've scored and we've won the game and this is the feeling I want.
"I'm not nervous about playing in the Premier League. It's more excitement really; I'm enjoying every game, every stadium."
