Lethal marksmen are racking up the goals in England, Spain, Germany and beyond

We haven't even hit November yet and the never ending carousel of football has already served up a bunch of goals across the continent. The usual suspects are at it again and some unfamiliar faces are making themselves household names with their goalscoring exploits. The top five domestic leagues in Europe haven't disappointed thus far and their most prized assets are scoring goals for fun. Here are the best from each country, and where you can watch them in action.

Jonathan David - 6

Despite a lot of hubbub online it seems Ligue 1, at least for now, is still fifth in UEFA's coefficient rankings, meaning Ligue 1 top scorer and Canadian international Jonathan David edges Luis Diaz of Porto onto this list. Despite Champions Lille languishing in 11th in the table and 13 points off the top, their 21-year-old striker is in top form. He's already netted almost half the league goals he managed in the last campaign and looks set for a big money move in the not so distant future. Linking up with veteran Turkish striker Burak Yilmaz up front, David has been able to net 6 goals in just 10 matches, outscoring the likes of Kylian Mbappe and Lionel Messi in the process. This could be a big season for the young Canadian. He's a player well worth watching blossom before he inevitably gets that move to an elite club.

Ciro Immobile - 7

One of Italy's many heroes at Euro 2020, Ciro Immobile jumps onto this list as Serie A's current top scorer. The 31-year-old has already netted 7 goals in as many games for Lazio this season. He's a wily, experienced striker who knows how to put the ball in the back of the net. Edin Dzeko is the only man pushing him thus far with 6 goals of his own since his move to Inter Milan but for now the plaudits belong solely to Immobile. His consistency is astounding, only putting up less than 20 goals in a domestic league campaign once in the last 5 seasons. He scored 36 in 2019-20 and on this form he could perhaps outdo his best this season.

Mohamed Salah - 7

Mohamed Salah is representing the English Premier League very well. He just edges Immobile in this list because he has also contributed four assists for his team so far this season, while the Italian has only managed two. For the same reason, Leicester City's Jamie Vardy doesn't make the cut because, despite also scoring 7 goals, he has provided only one assist compared to the Egyptian's four. It's not only his goals and assists that make Salah immensely watchable but simply his technical ability. He is being lauded in all quarters as most likely the best footballer in the world at the time of writing. He's pulled off moments of pure genius on multiple occasions already this season as part of a Liverpool team which appears to be back to its best. He will no doubt be up there with a shout when the golden boot is awarded at the end of the season and at the moment only Vardy can come close to his lethality in front of goal.

Erling Haaland - 9

The unbelievable form of Norwegian sensation Erling Braut Haaland just goes on and on. His potential seems to be infinite. He could become far and away the best player of his generation. The youngster has already banged in 9 goals in only 6 Bundesliga games as part of a Dortmund side embracing the chaos under Marco Rose. The Yellow Wall are being treated to tonnes of goals and of course their star marksman is leading the way. After scoring 27 in 28 league games last season, who knows how many he might score this time around. His departure from BVB feels inevitable but for now German football fans can bask in his glory a little while longer as he takes the league by storm on an almost weekly basis.

Karim Benzema - 9

Topping the charts is Real Madrid's Karim Benzema. He's also scored 9, just like Haaland, but on top of that he's laid on an astonishing 7 assists for his teammates already, with the Norwegian managing only 3. Having returned to the fold in the French national team, the 33-year-old continues to be a vital part of the machine for club and country. Nobody comes close to him in La Liga right now in terms of goalscoring. As a player who was mostly associated with doing all the dirty work for Cristiano Ronaldo and helping to put him on a pedestal, Benzema now seems to be enjoying his new role as the focal point of Madrid's attack. Now he is the one taking on the responsibility as top goalscorer while still managing to create endless opportunities for the youngsters who surround him in attack. It's hard to overestimate his value to Madrid and La Liga.

Supporters of a biennial World Cup are playing Russian Roulette with domestic league income

FIFA's supposed plans to stage a World Cup every two years could cost leagues and clubs billions Former Arsenal manager and current Chief of Global Football Development at FIFA, Arsene Wenger is spearheading a consultation designed to adapt the men's football calendar starting in 2024. One of the most controversial proposals to come out of this thinktank is the idea of a biennial World Cup. While Wenger himself described a chasm in enthusiasm between younger and older generations, when responding to the uproar brought about by his suggestions, YouGov research commissioned by FIFA itself found that the idea is unpopular...
