Top five: Europe's in-form strikers

Published 7 Comments

Europe's top five leagues possess the best strikers in world football - and it's no surprise to see high-profile stars at the top of the goalscorer charts in their respective domestic competitions.

Let's take a look at Europe's current in-form strikers…

Premier League | Sergio Aguero

Sergio Aguero currently sits joint top of the goalscorer charts in the English Premier League, alongside Liverpool's Daniel Sturridge, after scoring eight goals at the start of this season.

In all competitions, the gifted Argentina international has netted seven goals in his last five matches - or 10 in his last eight.

Either way, Aguero is currently playing some of his best football under new Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini.

La Liga | Diego Costa

Diego Costa is the name on everyone's lips in Spain at the moment. The Brazilian - or should that be Spaniard? - finds himself joint top of the La Liga goalscorer charts after bagging 13 goals from 12 matches for Atletico Madrid.

Costa has scored 12 goals in his last 10 matches and has netted five more league goals than Lionel Messi. Not bad, eh?

Can Atletico hold onto him until the end of the season?

Serie A | Giuseppe Rossi

Isn't it great to see Giuseppe Rossi back scoring again after spending almost two full seasons out nursing serious injuries?

The Italy international has hit the ground running at Fiorentina and currently leads the Serie A top scorer charts with nine goals.

The former Manchester United and Villarreal striker bagged a superb hat-trick against Italian champions Juventus last month.

Bundesliga | Robert Lewandowski

Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski is not messing about. Although he's leaving Signal Iduna Park at the end of the season - or possibly earlier if a Premier League club manages to get their way - the Poland international is still giving it his all.

With nine goals to his name, including a hat-trick in his most-recent outing against Stuttgart, the 25-year-old leads the Bundesliga top scorer charts.

Ligue 1 | Edinson Cavani

Edinson Cavani, like Radamel Falcao, was always going to score plenty of goals in Ligue 1.

The Uruguay international, who now plays for PSG, has scored five goals in his last three league matches to bring his tally to nine for the season - putting him top of the goalscorer charts in France's premier division, one ahead of Falcao.
