Marcus Rashford leads Europe’s top goalscorers in 2023 with seven goals

Marcus Rashford leads Europe's top goalscorers in 2023 with seven goals

Kylian Mbappe led the 2022 top goalscorers list by six goals from the old man at Barcelona. But he could not win France the World Cup, the daft fraud.

He is already in the running for the 2023 annual goalscorers award (that does not actually exist).

The criteria: All club goals in all competitions for clubs in top five leagues.


10) Victor Osimhen – Napoli (4 goals)
Four goals in four Serie A games in 2023 have catapulted him to the top of the Serie A goalscoring charts and into the attentions of Europe’s big clubs, with Manchester United said to be very interested in the Nigerian as a long-term striker solution.


9) Erling Haaland – Manchester City (4 goals)
Is that all? Frankly, we’re embarrassed for him. His stats are quite decent, though.


8) Eddie Nketiah – Arsenal (4 goals)
Nobody saw this coming. And nobody else on this list has scored twice v Manchester United and Oxford United.


7) Rasmus Højlund – Atalanta (4 goals)
The Danish striker has scored three of his four Serie A goals since the turn of the year.


6) Robert Lewandowski – Barcelona (4 goals)
Features some classic stat-packing against fifth-tier AD Cueta but expect him to fly up this ranking when he is allowed to play in La Liga again.


5) Riyad Mahrez – Manchester City (5 goals)
“Since we came back for World Cup, he is playing really, really well,” said Pep Guardiola, who has watched the Algerian score five goals in 2023, all against Tottenham or Chelsea.


4) Kylian Mbappe – PSG (5 goals)
Now this is stat-padding; all five goals were scored against non-league side US Pays de Cassel. That follows two Ligue Un games in which Mbappe failed to score and PSG lost to see their Ligue Un lead cut.


3) Wissam Ben Yedder – Monaco (5 goals)
A hat-trick against Ajaccio made it 11 league goals for the season for the Frenchman who did not even make the World Cup squad.


1) Ademola Lookman – Atalanta (6 goals)
Weren’t expecting that, were you? He has already scored more goals this season for Atalanta than in two on-loan Premier League seasons at Fulham and Leicester City. A goal every 53 minutes in 2023, is it?


2) Marcus Rashford – Manchester United (7 goals)
Seven goals in seven games. The man is on fire.
