Surprisingly, Ronaldo and Messi take the top two spots with the two of them being the only players with over 100 goals, and only players in triple digits in total goal involvements.
Sergio Aguero (joint 16th) is the only active Premier League player in the top 25 and Neymar (13th) is the youngest player on the list at just 28. Lewandowski has the chance to end up in the top four by the end of this current season with nine goal involvements needed from the remaining games.
