It rained goals galore at the top of the ranking, with six of the current seven top scorers finding the back of the net on the weekend.

Edinson Cavani and Harry Kane both added one strike to their tallies and now sit on 24 league goals, while Mohamed Salah and Ciro Immobile follow with 23 strikes each.

Lionel Messi climbed to fifth spot after scoring a brace against Girona, including a cheeky free-kick, which even shocked his coach, and now sits on 22 strikes.

Sergio Aguero was the only striker in the top seven that did not add to his league tally this past weekend, but that's based on the fact that he played in the Carabao Cup final, scoring Manchester City's opener in their 3-0 triumph over Arsenal.

Luis Suarez made the biggest jump this week following his hat-trick against Girona. The Uruguayan has now scored as many goals as Robert Lewandowski, while Neymar, with 19 goals, and Mauro Icardi, with 18, complete the top 10.

Ronaldo now sits just four goals shy of the top 10 marksmen in Europe's top five leagues after taking his tally to 14 LaLiga goals for the season. He even snubbed the chance to close the gap further when he chose to give Karim Benzema the chance to score a late penalty against Alaves.
