Former Arsenal defender Martin Keown has backed Liverpool star Mohamed Salah to win the Premier League’s golden boot this season.

The 27-year-old, who has scored 57 league goals since joining from Roma in 2017, won the award during his first season at Anfield after scoring 32 goals in 36 league appearances for Jurgen Klopp’s side.

He claimed the golden boot again last year, but was forced to share it alongside Reds team-mate Sadio Mane and Arsenal forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang after all three players finished the season with 22 .

The Egyptian has already scored three goals this season and Keown, who is expecting Liverpool to win the title, has backed him to outscore Mane come the end the season.

Mohamed Salah shared the golden boot with Sadio Mane and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang last season

“If Liverpool are going to be champions, it has to be Mohamed Salah,” Keown wrote in the Daily Mail .

“He will pip Sadio Mane this season, and I’m sure Klopp won’t have let those two leave Turf Moor on Saturday without dealing with their squabble.

“Salah went through a spell where he struggled to score last season, but I see more in his play this year than I have before.”

Meanwhile, fellow Mail columnist, and former Blackburn and Celtic striker Chris Sutton believes that Tottenham star Harry Kane will finish the season as the league’s top scorer.

Harry Kane also has three goals

The England striker, 26, won the award in both the 2015-16 and 2016-17 seasons, finding the net an 29 times in the latter campaign.

Despite being limited to just 28 league appearances by injuries last season, Kane still scored at an impressive rate and finished with 17 goals as Mauricio Pochettino’s side took fourth place.

He has enjoyed a promising start to the new campaign, already scoring three goals from Spurs’ opening four matches this season, and Sutton is confident the 26-year-old will enjoy another productive year in front of goal.

“Fitness permitting, he will always be leading that line for Spurs,” wrote Sutton in the same article.
