Mohamed Salah of Liverpool leads the race with 22 goals, while Tottenham’s Son Heung-min is second with 21.

Because no other player is in sight, one of them will most likely win the top-scorer honor.

Cristiano Ronaldo is in third place with 18, but an injury has forced him to withdraw from the last day.

Salah has received the accolade twice before, the last time for his record-breaking 32 goal haul in the 2017-18 season. With 22, he shared it with Sadio Mane and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang the next season.

Salah has the chance to become only the fourth player in history to win the Golden Boot three times. Son, on the other hand, has scored more than 20 goals in a league season for the first time with Spurs and could be the first Asian player to win the award.

Berbatov, who won the Golden Boot in 2011, is backing Park Ji-sung to beat his Liverpool opponent. According to Betfair (via The Mirror), he said:

“I’m rooting for Son to join the club and become a Premier League top goalscorer; he has to score one to equal Salah, and two to go ahead of him. He can do it and secure Champions League football for Spurs in the process.”

On Sunday, Tottenham will face Norwich City at Carrow Road in a winnable match.

Given the latter’s shambolic defensive record this season, they could score a few goals as well. Son will try to acquire a few of his own under his belt.

A win will ensure the north London club’s place in the UEFA Champions League next season.
