The award is shared for the first time since 2018/19, when Salah, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Sadio Mane all finished on 22 goals apiece.

 

Liverpool star Salah becomes only the fourth player to claim the Golden Boot for a third time, after Premier League Hall of Fame inductees Alan Shearer and Thierry Henry, and Harry Kane.

 

Salah also claimed the Playmaker of the Season award for the most assists, a feat matched only by Kane last season.

Son becomes the first Asian to win the prize and only the third Spurs player to claim the award after Teddy Sheringham and Harry Kane.

Cristiano Ronaldo finished third on 18 goals after missing the 1-0 defeat at Crystal Palace due to injury.
