Cristiano Ronaldo - 16 goals

The Real Madrid forward is, quite simply, in sensational form this season, bagging his fourth hat-trick in all competitions at the weekend against Real Sociedad.

After not scoring in the first two games of the season, his latest treble comes after braces against Getafe and Rayo Vallecano, as well as a hat-trick against Sevilla.

It's hard to argue that he's not the most lethal striker in world football right now - but can anyone catch him?
