Liverpool's Mohamed Salah Breaks English Premier League Goal Scoring Record

He has 44 goals in 51 games in his first season at Liverpool.

Salah's strike into the bottom corner lifted him above Alan Shearer, Luis Suarez and Cristiano Ronaldo as the first player to net 32 times in a single 38-game season.

Dejan Lovren doubled Liverpool's lead when he headed in Andrew Robertson's cross just before halftime.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp, says there is more to come from Premier League Golden Boot victor Mohamed Salah, after his record-breaking first season at the club. "Now, we will be ready and this qualification gives us a big boost".

Spurs were handed an incredibly tough draw from Pot 3 this season but still emerged as group winners ahead of Real Madrid, Borussia Dortmund and Apoel Nicosia. "They keep moving to the next level".

As it turned out, Liverpool could have lost against Brighton, as Chelsea suffered a 3-0 defeat at the hands of Rafa and Newcastle at St. James' Park.

There was a party atmosphere at Anfield on the final day of the season. This is my fourth year now and the first time I have got to 30 goals in the Prem, now it's about getting to 30 goals for the next two or three years, that's the aim.

As well as an incredible goalscoring return during his first season back in England, he has also helped guide the Egyptian national team to this summer's World Cup, their first appearance at the tournament since 1990.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger signed off after 22 years and 1,235 games in charge with a 1-0 win at Huddersfield, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang grabbing the victor.

Both sets of fans applauded Wenger in the 22nd minute of the game and two planes flew overhead dragging messages of support for the Frenchman.

"Do I feel relief?" Not really, I'm sad. At some stage it has to end. I am trying to improve every year, so I am very happy.

Tottenham beat Leicester 5-4 in the highest-scoring game of the day to secure third place above Liverpool.

Champions Manchester City have broken the record for wins, points and goals this season as Gabriel Jesus struck a dramatic late victor to beat Southampton 1-0.

That also meant City set a record EPL margin of victory of 19 points over United, which beat Watford 1-0 at Old Trafford.

As such, the Dutch champions are guaranteed European football for next season, regardless of whether they can navigate the playoff round.

Everton finished 8th despite losing to West Ham 3-1 at the London Stadium.

At the other end of the table, Swansea City's 7-season stay in the EPL came to an end as it joined West Bromwich Albion and Stoke City in being relegated to the Championship.
