Just one more match day and the 2021/22 Premier League season will be over. So far, it's been a tough season, and the winner of this year's league title is still unknown as the last day approaches.
But the fight for first place in the league isn't the only one we'll see on the last match day. The battle for the Golden Boot at the end of the season is another one to look forward to.
Daily Express took this picture.
With the way things are going, it looks like Salah or Son will win this year's Golden Boot. But at the end of the season, who will get the prestigious award? This is a hard question to answer, but let's look at a few things that might help us figure it out.
At the moment, Mohammed Salah has scored the most goals in the Premier League, with 22. Son Heung-Min, who plays for Tottenham and has scored 21 goals in the Premier League this season, is only one goal ahead of him. At first glance, Salah seems like the most likely candidate for the award. However, that might not be the case.
The Egyptian isn't sure to play against Wolves for Liverpool because of an injury. During Liverpool's FA Cup game against Chelsea, he was taken off because he was hurt. He is not very likely to play against Wolves. This means that if Son plays against Norwich on Sunday, he might have a chance to win the Golden Boot.
If Salah can't play against Wolves, all Son has to do to win the Golden Boot is score at least one goal against Norwich. This shouldn't be too hard, since the Korean is in good shape right now. On Sunday, he might end up getting more than one goal.
Son still has a good chance of winning the Golden Boot even if Salah plays against Wolves on Sunday. This is because Salah will play Wolves and Son will play Norwich, which is a much easier team than Wolves.
But we should all agree that Salah is a better player than Son and a better scorer of goals as well. If he plays against Wolves, he will definitely be a threat to score.
Taking all of this into account, it is safe to say that both players deserve to win the Golden Boot. But if I had to guess who would probably win, I'd put my money on Son Heung-Min.
