Last season, Arsenal forward Aubameyang and Liverpool's duo of Mane and Salah made history for African football in the Premier League when they shared the coveted Golden Boot award between them after scoring 22 goals each.

The trio, who also feature in the top 10 for the league's leading goalscorers from the continent, trail some way behind table-topping Didier Drogba, however, with the Ivory Coast legend having netted 104 goals across his two spells with Chelsea.
