Race for Premier League Golden Boot ends in three-way tie

The race for the Premier League’s Golden Boot finished in a three-way tie, after Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang and Sadio Mane each scored final day braces to level with Mohamed Salah on 22 goals.

Aubameyang scored twice in Arsenal’s 3-1 win at Burnley, whilst Mane also netted two as Liverpool beat Wolves 2-0 at Anfield.

The duo’s goals moved them level with another Liverpool forward, with Salah also winning a share of the award to make it back-to-back Golden Boots for the Egyptian.

It is the lowest winning total since Carlos Tevez and Dimitar Berbatov shared the prize with 20 goals each in 2011, also the last time that the award was shared.

Salah also becomes just the sixth player in Premier League history to win the award in consecutive seasons, after Alan Shearer, Michael Owen, Thierry Henry, Robin Van Persie and Harry Kane.
