The final round of the 2019/20 Premier League season will unfold on Sunday. But one of the awards still up for grabs is the Golden Boot, which is awarded to the league’s top scorer.

Leicester striker Jamie Vardy leads the way heading into the final day.

His 23 goals this season puts him a strong position to win the prize, with Southampton’s Danny Ings second in the race on 21.

Also in the running is Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang with 20 goals, while Liverpool star Mohamed Salah is likely to miss out despite netting an impressive 19 times.

Although Vardy has the chance to win the gong for the first time, he insisted it wasn’t his priority.



He told the club’s wesbite: “At the end of the day it’s all about putting performances in for for the club and picking up as many points as possible.

“I’ve said before, it doesn’t really matter who scores, as long as we are picking those points up.”

Vardy’s Leicester host Manchester United on the final, while Ings faces Sheffield United and Aubameyang takes on Watford.

What happens if the Golden Boot is tied?
Unlike the World Cup where the Golden Boot is decided by assists if the top scorers are level, the Premier League instead shares it between the players.

This happened previously when Chris Sutton, Michael Owen and Dion Dublin shared it in 1997/98.

It also occured in 1998/99 when Jimmy Floyd-Hasselbaink, Michael Owen and Dwight Yorke shared the spoils.

Dimitar Berbatov and Carlos Tevez both took home the award in 2010/11 when they got 20 each.

Last season, we saw Aubameyang, Salah and Sadio Mane – all on 22 goals – share the Golden Boot.
