LIVERPOOL, England (AP) — Beating Manchester City to the title might not be the only thing occupying the minds of Liverpool forwards Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane heading into the final two weeks of the Premier League season.
They are battling each other for the Golden Boot, too.
Salah and Mane became the top two in the league’s scoring charts Friday after netting twice each in Liverpool’s 5-0 win over already-relegated Huddersfield that lifted the team back into first place.
Salah has hit the front on 21 goals — leaving behind Man City striker Sergio Aguero and Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who both have 19 — as he looks to finish as top scorer for the second straight season.
