Signed from Roma in the summer, Salah has proved his doubters wrong after a disastrous first spell with Chelsea. Liverpool's £36.9 million signing has notched up 10 goals and two assists as Liverpool competes for a place in the top four. The Egyptian's scoring rate of a goal in every 102 minutes is better than the likes of Tottenham Hotspur's Harry Kane, Chelsea's Alvaro Morata and Manchester United's Romelu Lukaku.
At 30, Messi still remains Barcelona's chief goal-scorer and creator. Having moved to a more central role after the departure of Neymar, Messi has been involved in 16 of the 34 goals Barcelona has scored in the league. After losing out on the LaLiga crown to rival Real Madrid, Barcelona has set the early pace in the 2017-18 season with the winter break approaching.
Cavani has the best ratio for goals per minutes (66) on the pitch in the top five leagues across Europe. The Uruguayan has benefited from the creativity provided by record signings in Neymar and Kylian Mbappe as PSG has trounced every team in its path. As it stands, the 30-year-old striker requires only five goals to overhaul Zlatan Ibrahimovic as the top scorer in Paris Saint-Germain's history.
After underwhelming spells in the Bundesliga and the Laliga, the Italian schemer returned home with a point to prove. In the 13 matches played so far, Immobile has led the scoring charts with 16 goals and six assists. But his goals haven't helped Lazio much as it trails leader Napoli by nine points, in fifth position.
In the early part of the season, the 29-year-old was often seen clashing with club officials and former players with his comments regarding the Bavarian club's transfer policies than his goal-scoring prowess. But the Pole has been revitalised after a change in the managerial hotseat with Jupp Heynckes replacing Carlo Ancelotti. Lewandowski will now look to help fire Bayern to a record sixth successive Bundesliga title.
