This season 2018/2019, the title of top scorer in the English league returns to three decisive African strikers in the success of their respective teams. They are Senegalese Sadio Mané, Egyptian Mohamed Salah and Gabonese Pierre Emerick Aubameyang.

Sadio Mané, Mohamed Salah and Aubameyang finished top scorers in the league with 22 goals scored respectively.

This Sunday, May 12, 2019, Sadio Mané scored a double on the 38th day with Liverpool against Wolverhampton with a score of 2 goals to 0 in Anfield, as Aubameyang with Arsenal against Burnley with 3 goals to 1 thus joining Mouhamed Salah in the ranking of the scorers of the first league.

Remember that the Ivorian international Didier Drogba was the last African player to finish top scorer of the English championship in 2010.

The last time an African trio finished top of the Premier League scorers was during the 1998-1999 season.
