Romelu Lukaku (Everton)

Goals this week: 2 (vs Leicester) 

Total league goals: 23

League games played: 31

Goals/game ratio: 0.74


There's a Belgian magician in the Premier League, and he's wearing a blue shirt. Who? Eden Hazard? Come on...


Widening the gap between him and his closest contenders on top of the Premier League goalscorers table, Romelu Lukaku is having the time of his life this season. He scored in every one of the Toffees' last seven games at home and with two against Leicester this weekend, is now four goals ahead of Harry Kane (19) with 23 strikes - with not one single penalty. 


Well done, Chelsea. 

Anthony Modeste (1. FC Köln)

Goals this week: 1 (vs Borussia Mönchengladbach) 

Total league goals: 23

League games played: 28

Goals/game ratio: 0.82


The French sensation of the season across the Rhine keeps on surprising, consolidating his spot on this top 10 week after week. 


With another goal, although it didn't help his team against Borussia Mönchengladbach (3-2 defeat), Anthony Modeste got his total of the season to 23, and remains just two goals behind Borussia Dortmund superstar Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Edin Džeko (AS Roma)

Goals this week: 1 (vs Bologna) 

Total league goals: 24

League games played: 31

Goals/game ratio: 0.77


Tied with Gonzalo Higuain for a long time, Edin Dzeko opened up the gap between him and the Juventus striker this weekend as he helped his team get a 3-0 win over Bologna. 


With 24 league goals - 34 in all competitions - Dzeko sets a new record each week, this week becoming the player who has scored the most for AS Roma in a season. 

Luis Suárez (FC Barcelona)

Goals this week: 0 (vs Malaga) 

Total league goals: 24

League games played: 29

Goals/game ratio: 0.83


Powerless in Barcelona's defeat to Malaga (2-0), Luis Suarez failed to score after striking in each of his last five competitive games. 


That's still 24 goals this season for the Uruguayan Pistolero, only six goals off his career best from last season (35). 

Andrea Belotti (Torino FC)

Goals this week: 1 (vs Cagliari) 

Total league goals: 24

League games played: 28

Goals/game ratio: 0.86


Far from all this superstar business, the Torino rooster keeps scoring his way to the top of the Serie A goalscorers ranking and no one seems fit to stop him. 


With another crucial goal to assure his team a nice win over Cagliari (3-2), Andrea Belotti now has 24 league goals. Guess who's gonna sign with Juventus next season? 

Alexandre Lacazette (Olympique Lyonnais)

Goals this week: 0 (vs Lorient) 

Total league goals: 24

League games played: 27

Goals/game ratio: 0.89


After scoring in midweek action against Metz (0-3), Alexandre Lacazette wasn't even in the starting eleven to face Lorient this weekend. And one might say his absence was deeply felt, since Lyon was absolutely smashed by the 18th team in Ligue 1 (1-4). 


Only on the pitch for the last 25 minutes, Lacazette was powerless. On the other hand, he didn't get his weekly penalty. We'll call that mitigating circumstances. 

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Borussia Dortmund)

Goals this week: 0 (vs Bayern Munich) 

Total league goals: 25

League games played: 26

Goals/game ratio: 0.96


In the clash of superstar strikers which matched him against Robert Lewandowski this Saturday, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang - trying to make amends after that silly mask controversy - didn't show much and couldn't do anything but watch his team being crushed by Ancelotti's men (4-1). 


His first goalless game after scoring in each of his last seven competitive goals. And no doubt he'll be back on the scoresheet really soon. 

Robert Lewandowski (FC Bayern München)

Goals this week: 2 (vs Borussia Dortmund) 

Total league goals: 26

League games played: 28

Goals/game ratio: 0.93


The great winner of Saturday's der Klassiker. With two set piece goals, Robert Lewandowski climbs on this top 10's podium for the first time this season, with now 26 league goals in 28 games. 


This man just makes the amazing look normal. 

Lionel Messi (FC Barcelona)

Goals this week: 0 (vs Malaga) 

Total league goals: 27

League games played: 27

Goals/game ratio: 1


After back-to-back braces against Sevilla and Valencia, Lionel Messi was as helpless as the rest of his team to get three points against Malaga this weekend (2-0).


A minor setback in La Pulga's inevitable road to a sixth Ballon d'Or. 

Edinson Cavani (Paris Saint-Germain)

Goals this week: 2 (vs En Avant Guingamp) 

Total league goals: 29

League games played: 29

Goals/game ratio: 1


Unstoppable. Magistral. Breathtaking. Brilliant. All the superlatives are still too little to describe Edinson Cavani's season with Paris Saint-Germain. 


Scoring his 28th and 29th league goals of the season after two goalless games in Ligue 1, he now has 42 goals in all competitions and remains, irremovable, on top of this ranking. 


At the beginning of the season, after his four goals against Caen (0-6), French journalist Francesca Antoniotti said he won't score more than eight goals this season in all competitions. Oh boy, she must feel stupid right now.
