When Zlatan Ibrahimovic left Paris Saint-Germain in the summer, people rightly wondered where the goals would come from for the Ligue 1 champions. The Swedish striker scored 156 goals in 172 appearances for PSG, and was one of the key reasons for their dominance.

Although that dominance has disappeared this season – with PSG currently third in the Ligue 1 table – the Uruguayan has stepped up to be Unai Emery’s chief marksman.

The 29-year-old, who was often frustrated playing in a wide position to accommodate Ibrahimovic, has flourished in the Swede’s absence.

In fact, Cavani’s 21 goals this season place him at the top of the charts across Europe’s top five leagues.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Luis Suarez are the next on the list, five goals behind Cavani.
