Some of the best strikers in the world have been displaying their qualities since the start of the 2021/22 campaign, helping their team to the top with plenty of goal contributions. We have been witnessing some world class individual performances from these strikers since the season started and their numbers in terms of goals and assists have been ridiculous.
In this article we are going to rank the best strikers in the whole of Europe based on their current form. Below is a summarized run down of the list, from bottom to top.
5. Romelu Lukaku (Chelsea)
The Belgian powerhouse made his dream move back to his childhood club this summer for a whopping fee of 97.5 million pounds and he has been repaying every penny with his performances for them so far. The 28 year old has scored 4 goals from 5 starts in Chelsea colors this season.
Apart from his goals, Lukaku has served as a focal point for Thomas Tuchel's side - a major factor which the European champions lacked on so many occasions last term. He was the main player that led Inter Milan to the Serie A title under Antonio Conte last season and with the way he is playing, he could as well replicate the same achievements with Chelsea this season.
4. Cristiano Ronaldo (Manchester United)
One of the greatest players to ever play the beautiful game of football. The iconic Portuguese forward stole the headlines this summer with his high profile return to Manchester United and has been showing why there was a lot of noise in the media regarding his move.
Ronaldo has scored more goals than games played for the Red Devils (4 goals in his first 3 appearances) so far. A lot of people doubted if he could do the business back in the EPL considering his age, but the 36 year old has proven doubters wrong with his lethal finishing ability to keep up his incredible career stats for the several clubs he has represented.
3. Erling Braut Haaland (Borussia Dortmund)
Haaland is the hottest prospect in world football at the moment and for good reason too. The Norwegian wonderkid has been phenomenal since his emergence at Austria Salzburg and somehow managed to maintain his outrageous goalscoring numbers even with his switch to a top European league like the German Bundesliga.
So far this season, he has already recorded a total of 11 goals and 3 assists in his first eight appearances in all competitions for Dortmund. He now has a total of 68 goals and 19 assists in just 67 matches for the German outfit. Truly incredible.
2. Robert Lewandowski (Bayern Munich)
Lewandowski is currently the best player in the world according to the world football governing body (he is the FIFA Best Player Award holder). The Polish international has been in unstoppable form for Bayern Munich for several seasons, he even broke the record for most goals scored in a single Bundesliga season last term with 41 goals to surpass the initial record held by the legendary Gerd Müller.
Lewandowski has started the new season in the same way he ended the last one, with 7 goals in 11 matches to his name already, including a brace in the demolition of FC Barcelona in front of the Camp Nou crowd in their UEFA Champions League opening match.
1. Karim Benzema (Real Madrid)
“Big Benz” like many like to call him, has been carrying the Real Madrid team since the 2018/19 season when a certain Cristiano Ronaldo left the club. His achievements for the Los Blancos has not really gotten the recognition it deserves but with his fine start to this campaign, a lot of people have begun to take note of his world class qualities.
The 33 year old French striker has been unstoppable in the Spanish La Liga so far and has an incredible 15 goal contributions (8 goals and 7 assists) in just his first 6 league matches for Real Madrid. He tops the charts for the highest goalscorer and also the highest assist provider with his efforts and will be very hard to stop considering the way he has been playing.
