Mane scored twice for Liverpool in a 2-0 victory against Wolves at Anfield, equalling the tally of his teammate, while the Gabon international also matching that score by striking twice in the second half for Arsenal against Burnley.

The Premier League is nothing like other competitions where assists are used in tie break situations. The EPL regulations state that in the event of a tie the award will be shared.

The last time two players shared the top-scorer award was in 2010/11, where Manchester United's Dimitar Berbatov and Manchester City's Carlos Tevez both had 20 goals.

Aubameyang becomes the first Gunners player since Robin Van Persie in 2011-12 to win the Premier League Golden Boot.
