Three African Stars Share EPL Golden Boot.



The trio of Gabon's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Egypt's Mohamed Salah and Senegalese Sadio Mane have won the 2019 English Premiership Golden Boots.

The Arsenal forward Aubameyang netted twice on the final day as three players share the award for the first time since 1998/99. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang equalled Liverpool duo Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane as the top scorers in the 2018/19 Premier League, on 22 goals each.

It is the first time three players have shared the award since Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, Michael Owen and Dwight Yorke in 1998/99.

Salah led the race going into the final day, but he could not add to his 22 goals.

Mane struck twice in the second-placed Reds' 2-0 home win over Wolverhampton Wanderers to tie with his Liverpool team-mate.

Arsenal's Aubameyang also netted twice, in a 3-1 win at Burnley, and he was the man who threatened to take the award on his own as he missed a late chance to claim a hat-trick.

Mane and Aubameyang have won the award for the first time, while Salah has claimed the Golden Boot in back-to-back seasons, after scoring 32 times in 2017/18.
