With Christmas just around the corner, it seems like the perfect time to have a look back at world football’s top performers so far this season.

A number of big names have truly delivered already this season, whilst some other lesser know players have risen to the occasion for their respective teams.

To work out how influential a player has been, in the attacking sense at least, we’ve simply added the number of goals a player has scored with the number of assists they have contributed.

It’s not full proof, and doesn’t give defenders much of a chance. But, it gives us a clear indication as to who has been key to each team’s scoring ability this season.

The stats are taken from the wizards over at WhoScored.com, so enjoy our countdown in the slideshow that follows….

PS: Lionel Messi is NOT in the list. It’s not a mistake – he has eight goals and four assists, meaning a total of 12 points using our system! That's not enough - so enjoy the Top 15 that follows…
