Salah Breaks Premier League Goal Record

Mohamed Salah had quite the day Sunday, being named the Premier League Player of the Season, hours before opening the scoring for Liverpool in front of the home fans against Brighton, getting to 32 league goals on the campaign, and breaking the existing record of 31 held by Luis Suarez, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Alan Shearer. Liverpool would go on to win 4-0 with a convincing performance before they play Real Madrid in Kiev… Leicester City got off to a great start at Wembley Stadium against Spurs, and were leading 3-1 just after halftime when Kelechi Iheanacho scored. In the next thirteen minutes however, Spurs battled back to a 4-3 lead in the 60th minute, only for Jamie Vardy to score his second goal in the 73rd. Harry Kane would have the last laugh though, scoring the decisive fifth goal for the London side with fifteen to play… Manchester City became the first top flight English side to reach 100 points on a season, beating Southampton 1-0 with a wonderful last-gasp effort from Gabriel Jesus… Chelsea wrapped a disappointing end to the season with a 3-0 defeat at Newcastle… In Arsene Wenger’s final game at the helm, Arsenal capped off an era with a beautiful team goal, exemplifying “Wengerball,” as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang got on the end of an Aaron Ramsey pass to score the game’s only goal in the 38th minute at Huddersfield Town. Aubameyang scored ten Premier League goals on the season, despite not playing his first match until February. On the season he finished with one less goal than Alvaro Morata, and one more than Alexis Sanchez. The Gabonese striker also finished level on assists with Eden Hazard… Manchester United finished out their runner-up campaign with a 1-0 victory over Watford, after Marcus Rashford scored the winner in the 34th minute with the only shot on target from the Red Devils all game.
