Mohamed Salah Wins Premier League Golden Boot

Today, Mohamed Salah has already broken the record of scoring the most goals in a 38-game Premier League season - but it's not only the award the Reds attack earned after today's result against Brighton.

Salah has also beaten Tottenham Hotspur forward Harry Kane to this season's Golden Boot. This is despite not being an out-and-out striker himself.

It has been a tussle at times between Kane and Salah, but in the end, the Reds attacker pulled ahead of the race and didn't look back, cruising to victory.

The final table goes as follows: Salah 32, Kane 30, Sergio Aguero 21, Raheem Sterling 18, Jamie Vardy 20.

The Egyptian King scored a whopping 32 goals across the season - the highest ever scored in a 38-game Premier League campaign.

It is, of course, not the only accolade that the 25-year-old has picked up this season. For his unprecedent season at Merseyside Salah has won: PFA Players' Player of the Year, FWA Footballer of the Year, African Footballer of the Year, BBC African Footballer of the Year, PFA Team of the Year, Liverpool F.C. Fans Player of the Year, Liverpool F.C. Players' Player of the Year: 2017-18 and the Premier League Player of the Season.

Now, following the end of the league campaign, attention will be turned to Ballon d'Or, the most revered award a footballer can claim, a token of world greatness.

Not since Kaka's 2007 win has a footballer won the award aside from Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. The chances of Salah winning the award will surely rest on Liverpool's Champions League final match against Real Madrid in Kiev. If the Reds can do the seemingly impossible and win, it will be fair to say that the 2018 Ballon d'Or will have the attacker's name on it. It's something no one could have predicted.

The only problem that Salah faces now is trying to emulate his successes for next season.
