Two-time winners Harry Kane and Mohamed Salah top the goalscoring charts with 22 goals apiece.

Kane is in worse form than his rival. He has scored only once since Matchweek 33, compared with Salah's total of three goals in the same period.

But Kane will fancy his chances of finishing his season strongly when Tottenham Hotspur travel to his favourite opponents. Indeed, he has scored 14 times in 11 matches against Leicester City, with seven of those strikes coming at King Power Stadium including four in one match when he last won the Golden Boot in 2016/17.

Kane also has a prolific record on the Premier League's final day, his seven goals in such matches being the third-highest total in the competition's history.

But Salah has a good record against his own Matchweek 38 opponents, Crystal Palace.

He has scored five goals in his last three meetings with them and will now hope to reclaim the award he lost last season to Jamie Vardy.
