3. Michu - Goals: 17; in the box: 16

Michu would appear to have something of the Ruud van Nistelrooy about him given his penchant to score his goals from the comfort of the penalty area, with 16 of the Spaniard's 17 strikes from closer than 18 yards.

The 27-year-old has been a revelation since his arrival at the Liberty Stadium, with the striker playing a prominent role in landing the club's first ever major trophy, and helping them into the top half of the Premier League.

Four of his goals this season have been scored from inside the six yard box, while his only success from beyond 18 yards was against Queens Park Rangers on the opening day of the campaign.
