With the Premier Leauge coming to an end this week, Mo Salah currently finds himself four goals clear of Harry Kane in the race for the Golden Boot in what has been a remarkable debut season for the former Roma man.
Kane has been desperately trying to catch the winger for weeks even claiming a Christian Eriksen goal was his by ‘swearing on his daughter’s life’! That appeal was granted in the Englishman’s favour but since then has only managed to hit the back of the net once in four games. The 24-year-old needs to find his scoring boots quickly and a couple of goals against Newcastle United this evening would give him a fighting chance of lifting the trophy for the third consecutive year.
Salah, who is nicknamed the Egyptian King, faces Brighton & Hove Albion at Anfield on the last game of the season whilst Kane comes up against Leicester City as Spurs bid farewell to Wembley with the team heading back to North London in their brand new stadium for next season. The race could go down to the wire depending on how well Kane fares tonight. If it does, we can expect a flurry of goals from both players come Sunday.
To coincide with the race for the Golden Boot we have a little quiz for all you football fanatics to have a go at. Can you name the players who scored more than 20 goals in a Premier Leauge season? There are 65 players who have achieved the feat and we give you a clue to each answer by providing the team they played for and the year in which they scored 20+.
