Harry Kane Challenges Salah To Repeat Goal Scoring Feat

Mohamed Salah has scooped up yet another award after his fabulous first season with Liverpool as the Egypt star was named the Premier League's Player of the Year on Sunday.

"Perfect final [day] of the season, of a very exciting season, a very intense season", he told his press conference after the game.

That also meant City set a record Premier League margin of victory of 19 points over Manchester United.

Serie A: Benevento 1 (Diabate 87) bt Genoa 0; Inter Milan 1 (Rafinha 80) lost to Sassuolo 2 (Politano 25, Berardi 72). He finished with five Premier League titles, three League Cups, one F.A. Cup, one UEFA Champions League, one UEFA Europa League, and one Club World Cup.

"To enjoy it we had to win it - winning football games is what makes me happy and the boys did it", Wenger said.

Harry Kane has challenged Mohamed Salah to beat him to the Golden Boot for the Premier League's top scorer again next season.

Jurgen Klopp's side needed only a point to retain their Champions League status for next season but with Chelsea losing at Newcastle, Dejan Lovren's powerful header and first Liverpool goals for Dominic Solanke and Andy Robertson achieved their aim in style.

Manuel Lanzini scored twice as West Ham beat Everton 3-1, while Crystal Palace beat bottom side West Brom 2-0 and Bournemouth won 2-1 at seventh-placed Burnley in the day's other matches.

At Anfield, they were also scouring through the record books after Salah opened the scoring against Brighton and Hove Albion with his 32nd goal of the season.

"The Golden Boot went down to the final day, and although Salah looked to be in the driving seat for most of the season, he wasn't in the frame before it started and that left us way ahead". The decisive goal came when striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang slid in at the back post to convert a low cross from Aaron Ramsey.

Liverpool finish the season with the joint-4th best goals against record in the PL.

"Whether that is managing or not..."

Manchester City players celebrate after scoring in the English Premier League match between Southampton and Manchester City at St Mary's Stadium, Southampton, on Sunday, May 13, 2018.

Most points - 100: Chelsea's record of 95 from the 2004/05 fell as City beat Brighton in midweek and Gabriel Jesus's stoppage time victor at Southampton took City into three figures for points. Jesus removed his shirt and twirled it in celebration in front of City's supporters.

City will celebrate on the streets of Manchester on Monday with an open-top bus parade.
