oddschecker look at what could be a nightmare final day for Liverpool’s Mo Salah both in terms of the title race and personal accolades.
Salah leading the way
Despite hitting a rocky patch and only scoring twice in his last seven league games, he still leads Heung-Min Son by a single goal (22 to 21) but there are doubts as to whether the Egyptian will be fit enough to take to the field at Anfield against Wolves, while Son is ready to go at relegated Norwich.
If the players end on the same number of goals, the award will be shared between the pair. The last time that his happened was back in 2019 when Salah, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Sadio Mane all scored 22 goals each.
Son to snatch it?
Son is the only man who could realistically snatch the award from Salah’s clutches on the final day, with Cristiano Ronaldo four back on 18. The Spurs man will certainly fancy his chances considering that his Spurs side travel to bottom side Norwich City. And it has been suggested that, should Spurs manage to build a lead, Harry Kane could hand penalty duties over to the South Korean.
There is a strong possibility that Son scores a hat-trick (16/1 best price) to secure the top scorer prize (if Salah doesn’t score at least two vs Wolves). If you fancy Son to spoil the final day party Salah, he is currently best priced at 32/19 to win the Premier League Golden Boot.
Could Kevin De Bruyne also pip Salah on the final day?
To add even more misery to Salah’s already nightmare day, Kevin De Bruyne could snatch the PFA Player of the Year award away from the Egyptian.
If he manages to score or create a couple against Aston Villa and, in doing so, drive Manchester City to the Premier League title, he will become hard to overlook in the Player of the Year running.
If you fancy the Belgian to win the award, he is currently available at a best price of 5/1. Of course, Salah could secure both the Golden Boot and Player of the Year awards, injury permitting, by putting in a strong performance himself complete with a goal or two against Wolves at Anfield.
Fancy the treble?
You can back Son to win the Golden Boot, De Bruyne to win the PFA Player of the Year award and Manchester City to win the title at best odds of 8/1.
