African superstars claim PL Golden Boot

English Premier League

For the first time in Premier League history, three African superstars, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane will share the Golden Boot award.

The African trio, who earned podium finishes at the CAF African Player of the Year awards, have continued to raise their profile in England's top-flight with excellent individual 2018/19 campaigns - scoring 22 goals each.

Salah, who lifted the prize last season in record-breaking fashion, becomes only the second African player in English history to win the award twice - after Ivory Coast and Chelsea legend Didier Drogba.

While Gunners' ace Aubameyang lifts his second top-scoring title after the 2016/17 Torjägerkanone with Borussia Dortmund, in which he netted a staggering 31 goals in 32 games.

Salah played all 38 games of the Reds league fixtures this season, while the Gabon and Senegal forward's acheived the tally in 36 games respectively.
