13. Duvan Zapata - 23 goals in 32 games

12. Moussa Dembele - 24 goals in 44 games

11. Jamie Vardy - 24 goals in 31 games

10. Wissam Ben Yedder - 25 goals in 41 games

9. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang - 25 goals in 41 games

8. Ciro Immobile - 25 goals in 39 games

7. Sadio Mane - 27 goals in 42 games

6. Raheem Sterling - 27 goals in 42 games

5. Sergio Aguero - 29 goals in 38 games

4. Kylian Mbappe - 32 goals in 35 games

3. Karim Benzema - 33 goals in 44 games

2. Lionel Messi - 39 goals in 42 games

1. Robert Lewandowski - 45 goals in 42 games

The biggest shock is Ronaldo not cracking the list at all as he's only managed 18 goals in 33 games this year.

The 34-year-old has still won Serie A and the Nations League in 2019 but his goalscoring has been below par.

It comes as no surprise that Messi finds himself among the elite however.

He remains the focal point of Barcelona's attack as they look to retain La Liga this season.

Karim Benzema has also enjoyed one of his most prolific years in front of goal.

The Frenchman has become Real Madrid's key goalscorer since Ronaldo's departure and he's repaid the faith shown in him by Zinedine Zidane.

Manchester City duo Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling come fifth and sixth which comes as no shock considering their domestic trophy haul last season.

Sadio Mane represents European Champions Liverpool after netting 27 goals in 42 games.

Some unexpected names manage to make the list including Jamie Vardy and Duvan Zapata.

Vardy is having an electric year under Brendan Rodgers at Leicester City and is the Premier League's top scorer this season.

But the crown for the whole year seems to be going to Lewandowski and it's well deserved.
