After a thrilling finish to last season’s Golden Boot race, there is a wide-open look to next term’s Premier League top scorer odds.
Having led the way with a haul of 32 in 2018, Salah went into the final round of fixtures with a two-goal advantage back in May, but ended up in a three-way tie for the title.
While the Egypt winger drew a blank as the Reds closed with a 2-0 triumph over Wolves, teammate Sadio Mane joined him on the 22 mark by bagging a brace at Anfield.
However, Arsenal forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang ended up with the same tally after hitting a double as the Gunners won 3-1 at Burnley.
“It means a lot,” said Aubameyang, who had previously won the Bundesliga Golden Boot with Borussia Dortmund in 2017. “I am really happy and proud of it.
“I am sharing this trophy with Mane and Salah – I like these two guys. We are representing Africa, so it is a good sign for the continent.”
After 18 months with the Gunners, 30-year-old Aubameyang believes there is still room for improvement.
He added: “It is always a tough battle when you play a game here in England and you have to be ready physically. That’s the most important change when I came here from Germany.
“I think I did well in the first six months and now I have had a whole season. I am happy with that. Hopefully, I will do better next season.”
Rashford ready to challenge?
Manchester City marksman Sergio Aguero finished just one off the pace and is available at 6/1 to add to his 2015 triumph in this category.
Teammate Raheem Sterling struck 17 times last term and is now 14/1 to finish at the summit in the Premier League top scorer odds.
Splitting that pair in the table was Jamie Vardy on 18 and it is 16/1 for the Leicester poacher to prevail next season.
Kane was left stranded on 17 after injury problems cut short his campaign, but the England ace is back on track to fight for more Golden Boot glory.
Among those bidding to break into the top ranks this time is Manchester United front man Marcus Rashford on 33/1.
The 21-year-old enjoyed a more prominent role after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer replaced Jose Mourinho and has signed a new long-term contract with the club this summer.
Rashford said: “United has been everything in my life since I arrived at the age of seven.
“This club has shaped me both as a player and as a person, so it’s such a privilege every time I get the opportunity to wear the shirt.
“I want to thank Ole and his staff for everything they have done for me. They are the perfect group of coaches to learn from as I continue my development and look to push on to the next level.
“I will be giving everything I have to help get this club back to where it belongs and deliver the success that our fans deserve.”
