10) Harry Kane
The Spurs striker didn’t find the net in August, but since bagging a brace in Malta on September 1st, “The Hurricane” can’t stop scoring. He now has 11 for the season which includes 4 braces and a hat-trick.
Key doubles against West Ham and Dortmund have seen Spurs go unbeaten in their last 6, thanks to the goals of their number 10.
After his £43m move from Lyon in the Summer, Lacazette has bagged 4 Premier League goals so far. More notably, every game that he has scored in, Arsenal have gone on to win so the new number 9 is definitely the king pin in The Gunners line up.
8) Paulo Dybala
After a summer of speculation and interest, Dybala stayed in Turin. Juve’s top man has found the net 12 times for club and country so far this year, with 10 of those coming in the league. That feat makes him the 2nd leading goalscorer in Europe this season, only 1 league goal behind Radamel Falcao of Monaco.
7) Wayne Rooney
After much speculation, England’s leading goal scorer, returned to ‘home’ his boy hood club on a free transfer. Although Everton haven’t had the best of starts to the 2017/18 season, Rooney has increased the hype around Goodison Park, along with other big named signings. Rooney’s 2 league goals this season have included a goal at the Ethiad against Manchester City and the match winner at home to Stoke City.
After being released by United at the end of the 2016/17 season, Ibrahimovic has re- signed with the Red Devils despite cruciate ligament damage in his knee last April. Latest reports suggest he could be back by Christmas to boost United’s already frightening attacking options. Ibra, who scored 28 goals in all competitions last term, will certainly be a great addition to the United squad for what will surely be another shout for the title.
Lukaku’s £75m transfer fee at the start of the summer raised a few eyebrows across the game. However, given transfer values later in the window and the Belgians start to the season, that seems a bargain for José Mourinho.
United’s number 9 has found the net 14 times in all competitions so far this season for club and country which has seen United go unbeaten since their loss to Real Madrid in the UEFA Super Cup. More importantly, there is only 1 game in which Lukaku hasn’t scored for United, furthermore proving it was money well spent in the summer.
4) Paul Pogba
Pogba has come to life this season and along with Lukaku, has turned Manchester United into a real force again both domestically and in Europe. Pogba has 2 goals and 2 assists already in his 4 Premier League appearances this season with United going on to win 3 of those games.
After his £89m move last summer, the Frenchman has become the key man in the middle this year at United.
3) Neymar Jr
Undoubtedly the most talked about player in world football this summer, the former Barca man made a record move to Paris for £200m. Neymar Jr. has 6 goals this term, which has seen PSG go unbeaten in all competitions this year so far.
Although Ligue 1, almost appears nailed on, PSG’s recent win at home to Bayern Munich in the Champions League is a real sign of progress and the worlds most expensive player will definitely be a key part of that.
2) Lionel Messi
2nd place in our countdown goes to Lionel Messi. The Argentinan has scored 12 goals this term and it is incredible to think that he is still only 30 years old after all he has accomplished in the game.
Averaging 1.13 goals per league game since making his debut in 2004, Messi has continued to reach ridiculous heights winning 5 Ballon d’Or’s, 4 Champions Leagues, 8 Spanish League titles and 5 Spanish Cup titles. The only trophy missing from his cabinet is the World Cup and with Russia 2018 just around the corner, can this finally be his year?
The top spot in our countdown goes to Cristiano Ronaldo. After a then, world record transfer move in 2008 from Manchester United to Real Madrid, Ronaldo has rarely been out of the headlines since joining the Galacticos. Like Messi, averaging over a goal per game for Real, Ronaldo already has 8 goals this term and is on course for another 50 goal plus season.
Like Messi, Ronaldo isn’t short of accolades. He has won 4 Ballon d’Or’s, 1 European Championships with Portugal, 4 Champions League titles, 3 Premier League title’s as well as 2 La Liga titles. With both Ronaldo and Messi going blow for blow in breaking records, it really is a golden era for football that us football fan’s may never see the like of again!
