Liverpool Star Striker The Man To Back For The Golden Boot

The man to back for the Golden Boot before the weekend
The man to back for the Golden Boot before the weekend

Liverpool’s Mo Salah was brought back to the centre of attention in midweek after a Champions League double made him the quickest player to reach 50 goals in Liverpool’s history, reaching that target in a staggering 65 appearances. That put him above Liverpool legends such as Albert Stubbins, Roger Hunt and Ian Rush.

Yet some pundits still believe that this season, Salah is not as clinical or dangerous as he was last season. The fact remains though, that at this point last season, Salah had scored just one goal more in the league than he has this season, hitting five, to this season’s total of four.

Salah is still one of the top forwards in the Premier League and although his performances have not been scintillating like they were at the end of last season as Liverpool reached the Champions League final, he has still reached a decent goals total.

His next few fixtures could see a glut of goals come the Egyptians way, with Cardiff at home this weekend, his odds are sure to shorten if he bags a few against Neil Warnock’s shaky defence at Anfield.

Salah could quite easily bag a hat-trick against Cardiff which would see him level-pegging with current leading scorer Eden Hazard, who has been on fire this season. The doubters would surely be silenced and his odds for the Premier League Golden Boot would tumble after another few goals.

The Egyptian can currently be backed at a large 11/2 to win the Golden Boot behind Sergio Aguero and Harry Kane. This seems a massive price for a man who scored 32 Premier League goals last season!
