The Golden Boot award for the Premier League will be decided this weekend, along with the title. But Jurgen believes Mo Salah has no chance at the Golden Boot ahead of the player bought at just £22 million by Spurs.

Mo Salah and the Golden Boot

The Liverpool striker has scored 22 Premier League goals this season, one more than his Spurs counterpart.

Salah’s participation in the final game against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Sunday is in doubt. So Heung Min Son, a £22 million signing in 2015 – could win the award regardless.

With Jurgen Klopp’s side playing in the Champions League final next weekend, the German boss is convinced that he would not risk his star player against Wolves this weekend. Adding Salah himself agrees on these terms as well.

The Liverpool Gaffer said:

”I actually understand 100 per cent the goalscoring battle with Heung-min Son but we have no chance that we take any risks. But Mo doesn’t want to take any risks, there is no doubt about that.”

Who will take home the prize?

It’s a tough decision for the Reds boss.

That’s because Liverpool has to defeat Wolves at Anfield to increase their hopes of beating Manchester City to the Premier League title. With Pep Guardiola’s side one point ahead of them (who face Aston Villa on Sunday).

Salah’s presence clearly improves Liverpool’s chances of success. But as Klopp pointed out, there is always a risk. And if the Tottenham forward wins the Golden Boot due to Klopp’s cautious approach, so be it.

Salah, who was dubbed “selfish” by Alan Shearer earlier this month, will undoubtedly want to finish first on the goalscoring table. But there are priorities, and it’s evident that team medals are more significant than individual ones.

If Salah goes on to win the Golden Boot, it will be his third golden boot. Unreal!. Moreover, Liverpool No.11 is also leading the race for the season’s playmaker trophy. The Egyptian has 13 assists under his name this season and is just 11 ahead of his teammate Trent Alexander-Arnold.

So, basically What. A. Season.! it could be for the Reds.
