Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has been in the gym despite Jurgen Klopp’s insistence on his team making the most of the winter break. The Egyptian international posted a picture on social media with the caption ‘Back from the holiday I didn’t go on’ – and these supporters have paid tribute to the 27-year-old’s dedication.
Leicester City’s Jamie Vardy remains in front in the race for this season’s Premier League Golden Boot, but in recent weeks, the former Roma attacker and Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero have closed the gap – and as a result, these fans are now convinced the coveted award is coming Salah’s way.
Will Mohamed Salah win the Golden Boot this season?
Golden boot incoming.

What do we think?
Salah, who is valued at £135 million (as per Transfermarkt), has scored 18 goals in all competitions so far this season, which means he has now scored an incredible 89 goals in 137 appearances for the Anfield club. The race for the Golden Boot looks as though it is going to go down to the wire, but if the Liverpool ace does miss out, it won’t be for a lack of trying.
