They won 3-2. Meanwhile, Liverpool had to settle for second place in the standings after a 3-1 win over Wolves.

With these three Golden Boot trophies, Mohamed Salah is now equal or equal to Alan Shearer and Harry Kane.

Facing Wolves, Mohamed Salah appeared from the bench in the 58th minute replacing Diogo Jota.

Conditions that have just recovered from injury made Mo Salah placed on the bench. However, the Liverpool coach then entered him and contributed to his goal.

Meanwhile, for Son Heung-min the Golden Boot trophy was the first in his career. He made history as a player from Asia who won the Premier League Golden Boot.

Ahead of this match, Son Heung-min is indeed a competitor to Mohamed Salah in winning the Premier League Golden Shoe title.

Son Heung-min’s performance in terms of his recent sharpness with the Spurs. He scored 11 goals in the last 10 matches which makes Tottenham Hotspur now in fourth place in the 2021-2022 Premier League.

Son Heung-min’s opportunity to win the title of Premier League’s top scorer in 2021-2022 is indeed very open because he is accompanied by Harry Kane.

Harry Kane had previously stated that he would do his best to ensure that his teammate (Son Heung-min) won the Golden Boot.
