The Golden Boot award was shared between Son Heung-min and Mohamed Salah after both players ended the 2021/22 season on 23 goals.
Salah had led the race going into the final day, but despite coming on as a substitute and scoring in Liverpool’s 3-1 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers, Son pulled level with the Egyptian thanks to a double in Tottenham Hotspur’s 5-0 victory at Norwich City.
