Salah, Son Share Premier League's Golden Boot 2021/22 Award Liverpool's Mohamed Salah and Tottenham Hotspur's winger Son Heung-Min have emerged as the Premier League's golden boot award winner on a dramatic final day of the season. Son started the day a goal behind Liverpool's Mohamed Salah in the race to win the golden boot award but netted twice in the space of five minutes to reach 23 Premier League goals and become the first Asian player to win the golden boot award. Tottenham were 5-0 winners over bottom of the table Norwich at Carrow Road and Son left it late to overtake Salah, who was closing in on winning it for the third time in his career. Son scored twice in the space of five minutes in the 70th and 75th minutes to secure the crown. Liverpool winger may have started a goal ahead of Son and while the South Korean did overtake Salah briefly, the Egyptian did come off the bench against Wolverhampton Wanderers at Anfield and score in the 84th minute to tie with Son, with both men sharing the award as Salah clinched the award for the third time in his career. All eyes were on Sunday’s final day of the Premier League season at both the Etihad Stadium and Anfield with City and Liverpool going toe-to-toe for the Premier League title on the final day of the season. City won the title for the sixth time in a decade and the fourth time in six seasons under Pep Guardiola, sealing a 3-2 win over Aston Villa. Liverpool needed a win over Wolves and for City to drop points on home soil against Villa. Jurgen Klopp’s side ended the campaign with a 3-1 win against Wolves.

AC Milan have won the 2021-22 Serie A title, beating Sassuolo 3-0 to clinch the crown from arch-rivals Inter Milan who finished second.

Before the blast of the whistle, the Rossoneri needed just a point to clinch the title. However, Olivier Giroud’s brace and Franck Kessie’s goal ensured that AC Milan claimed the Serie A title for the first time in 11 years.

Giroud squeezed the ball home in the 17th minute. The Frenchman scored his second in the 32nd minute after further fine work from Rafael Leao to put Pioli’s men on course for the trophy, without needing to be concerned with how Inter were getting on back at their shared San Siro stadium.

There was no relenting from AC Milan as Kessie found the back of the net four minutes later to effectively put the game, and title race, to bed before halftime.

Stefano Pioli’s side won their sixth match on the bounce to secure a title at the expense of Juventus, who had been so successful in the league over the years.

They put behind their woes for the past 11 years to earn their 19th Serie A crown.
