With everything said and done, scoring goals in an away fixture is always pleasing for a footballer. The ability to do it on a regular basis is what makes a player great.

Much credit goes to their star player Mohamed Salah, who was devastating for the opposition with his mind-boggling dribbling and goal contributions. The Egyptian winger scored 23 goals in 35 appearances to claim the Golden Boot, jointly with Spurs' Son Heung-min.
Salah was in sensational form in front of goal and at times looked unstoppable. The 30-year-old forward scored 11 goals away from home last season, which is within itself a great achievement.
