In the early stages of the season, it was difficult to see anyone other than Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Kane taking home the Premier League Golden Boot.
The England international has been scintillating in front of goal, and was on course to claim his third consecutive individual award.
However, Liverpool star Mohamed Salah found shooting boots of his own and ended up securing the gong with a two-goal advantage.
The race for the award was taken to the final day of the season, and Kane managed to add two strikes to his tally in a dramatic 5-4 victory over Leicester City.
The 24-year-old ended the campaign with 30 goals in the top flight, which is an improvement on his previous two seasons.
However, Salah recorded 32 by netting in Liverpool’s 4-0 romp over Brighton at Anfield on Sunday.
In the end, Tottenham closed the 2017-18 season without a trophy, but they did grab third place and qualification for the Champions League.
Unsurprisingly, Liverpool fans have been quick to poke fun at Kane, who has scored 41 goals and registered four assists in all competitions, but he received plenty of support from Spurs fans on Twitter.

Saltiness towards @HKane is quite frankly ridiculous, he is the best English striker by a country mile and has proved that year on year….such a critical culture we live in these days…I am proud he is a Spurs player and now onto the #WorldCup2018 #COYS

Despite @HKane being ‘off form’ and ‘struggling’ since being ‘rushed back from injury’ v Chelsea in Apr, he’s since scored 5 in 7 PL games including two match-winning goals in final two games to seal 3rd place 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 #THFC #COYS #Oneofourown #Kaneforcaptain

well done harry, if you hadn't got injured you would have probably scored 50, as for Liverpool theyre a 1 man team, without 1 season wonder salah they would be relegated #coys
