Auba, Salah and Mane Share PL Top Scorer Trophy

Liverpool duo Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane shared the Golden Boot award with Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on Sunday, after all three finished as the joint-top goalscorers in the Premier League during the 2018/19 season, with 22 apiece.

Mane scored twice as Liverpool beat Wolverhampton Wanderers 2-0 at Anfield, but they finished runners-up in the title race to champions Manchester City. The Citizens retained the title thanks to beating Brighton & Hove Albion away from home, with Sergio Aguero netting his 21st goal of the campaign.

 

Away from the title picture, Aubameyang added a brace to his tally during a 3-1 win away to Burnley that kept the Gunners in fifth place and took the former Borussia Dortmund man to 31 goals in all competitions.

There was some consolation for Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson, who beat out City rival Ederson to the Golden Glove crown after keeping the most clean sheets with 20.

 

Elsewhere, Chelsea’s Eden Hazard finished with the most assists, one ahead of Bournemouth winger Ryan Fraser, after setting up 15 goals to cap a terrific personal campaign.

Final Golden Boot Standings (Player, Club, Goals)

1. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Arsenal: 22

1. Sadio Mane, Liverpool: 22

1. Mohamed Salah, Liverpool: 22

2. Sergio Aguero, Manchester City: 21

He hasn’t been quite as prolific as his stunning first season on Merseyside, but Salah has still been the man the UEFA Champions League finalists have looked to for goals, particularly during the run-in.
