The Leading African Scorers In Europe's Top Five Leagues

Having not found the back of the net since January, Bafana Bafana striker Lebogang Mothiba has dropped further down the leading African goalscorers in Europe's top five leagues ranking, while Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Sadio Mane moved up the list following their goals on the weekend.

Tired of reading? Click through the gallery above to see the top African goalscorers in Europe's elite leagues so far this season, according to Transfermarkt.

Former African Player of the Year Aubameyang netted a second-half penalty in Arsenal's 2-0 victory over Manchester United and in doing so, took his tally to 17 goals in 29 top-flight encounters this season, making him the joint-highest African goalscorer in Europe's elite leagues along with Mohamed Salah and reported FC Barcelona and Bayern Munich target Nicolas Pepe.

Although he is at the summit of the podium, Salah extended his barren goalscoring streak to four consecutive league games against Burnley on Sunday, an alarming situation according to the Premier League's all-time top goalscorer, Alan Shearer.

Salah's teammate Mane, meanwhile, netted a brace in Liverpool's 4-2 victory over the Clarets, and made history with his first strike, becoming only the fifth player ever to find the back of the net in six consecutive league clashes at Anfield.

The Senegalese superstar took his league tally to 16 strikes, four goals ahead of Tunisia international Wahbi Khazri, who was sent off in Saint-Etienne's 1-0 loss to LOSC Lille on Sunday. Staying with that Ligue 1 fixture, the match-winning goal was scored three minutes from time by in-demand Ivory Coast international Pepe, who netted his 17th league goal of the campaign in doing so.
