Salah vs Aguero: comparing main Golden Boot contenders
Mail's Amitai Winehouse compares two forwards as the duo leads the Golden Boot race having scored 17 goals so far this season.
"Mohamed Salah did score on the opening day of the season and had three goals by the end of September, but struggled to really get going until mid-October, leading to doubts over his form. In December he really hit a run of form, scoring six Premier League goals. January saw three more."
"Sergio Aguero has been a consistent goalscorer throughout the season, although he did go through something a dry patch between the end of August and mid-September. He has also been ruthless when he has scored, bagging three hat-tricks this campaign in the Premier League already."
"Salah has played more football than Aguero in the Premier League this season, posting nearly 600 more minutes of action than his rival. In that time, he has taken three more shots but hit 11 more on target.
"The Egyptian's conversion rate is 19.5 per cent compared to Aguero's 20.2 per cent, which is a minimal difference. They also have fairly comparable assists figures, Salah with seven compared to Aguero on six.
"However, Salah posts a lower Expected Goals (xG) per 90 figure, at 0.63 to 0.77. Given the generally small figures involved in xG, that suggests Salah is doing better to put his chances away than Aguero, as the quality of them is slightly less."
