Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo is still topping European charts. The Portuguese has fired 36 shots – the most in Europe’s Top Five leagues.
The 34-year old former Real Madrid star moved to Italy for a different experience last term. While he did not top the scoring charts, he was one of the top scorers. Despite his advanced age, he consistently kept on leading the chats in Spain. However, now he has to be rotated to assist in specific games and times in the season.
Out of his 36 shots so far, his conversion rate has dropped significantly. Federico Chiesa of Fiorentina also has as much shots as Ronaldo but Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski is leading with 11 goals converted already.
Ronaldo is not as tricky anymore as he was at Old Trafford before he switched up his game in Spain. WilfriedZaha of Crystal Palace leads the pack here with 38 completed take-ons. Leicester City star Ricardo Pereira has been impressive so far, making 52 tackles which sends him up the chart.
Liverpool’s Becker Alisson is not yet back to full fitness paving way for the excellent Jan Oblak of Atletico Madrid to have six clean sheets – the most in the Top Five leagues so far.
On assists, Belgian star Kevin de Bruyne leads will 8 assists from 29 chances; Such impressive start early on in the season. He picked up a knock but is expected to return soon. He missed much of the games last season due to injuries but if he manages to stay fit for most of the current season, he is a candidate to rival Virgil van Dijk for the PFA Player of the Year award. Others like Raheem Sterling, Bernardo Silva, Sadio Mane also stand good chances.
