Premier league golden boot: who got the award for most goals between Mane, Salah and Aubameyang as all three draw on same number of goals.
Manchester City have finally won the league after a long nail-biting contest with Liverpool till final game-day. Meanwhile, similar fierce competition for the Premier league top-scorer was going-on.
However, unlike the Premier league title, there are three players who have drawn for the Premier league golden boot.
After the final game-week, Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, all three are topping the chart by scoring equal number of 22 goals.
So who will be crowned as the top scorer? Unlike the World Cup, where the Golden Boot is decided by assists if a number of scorers are level, the Premier League instead shares it between the players.
This has happened before also, when Chris Sutton, Michael Owen and Dion Dublin shared it in 1997-98 and and then again in 1998-99 when Jimmy Floyd-Hasselbaink, Michael Owen and Dwight Yorke shared the award.
Thus, this is after 20 years, when more than one player has leveled the top-scorer chart in the Premier league. However, it is amusing that none of the players belong to the champions Manchester City.
Despite, Mane’s and Salah’s exploits this season, Liverpool lost the league by one-point to the Pep Guardiola’s side.

Mohamed Salah will share the Premier League’s Golden Boot with two other players, still he is the top scorer of the league for two years in a row. The most influential and loved Egyptian since the death of Um Kalthoum in 1975.
