Is there anyone who can stop Mohamed Salah? With eight games left in the season and only three goals to make up in the Premier League top scorer standings, the Liverpool star has already scored 20 goals, while Son Heung-min (17 goals) is closing in on the Liverpool star.

Salah’s Liverpool colleagues Diogo Jota (15 goals) and Sadio Mane (13 goals) are in second and third place, respectively. Then there is a slew of additional double-figure scorers, like Harry Kane of Tottenham Hotspur and Cristiano Ronaldo of Manchester United.

Man City has five players on the list with seven or more goals, while Brentford’s Ivan Toney has also reached double digits with 12 goals, indicating that the Bees are certain to stay in the Premier League for another season.
