Manchester United and Chelsea flop Radamel Falcao is the in-form striker in Europe this season.

The Colombian has scored 12 league goals for Monaco so far this campaign.

That’s more than any other player in the top five divisions of European football.

His goals have come at the rate of one every 55 minutes - faster than those of any player to have scored at least five goals in Europe’s elite leagues this season.

Juventus’ Paulo Dybala has the next best record with one every 56 minutes.

Raheem Sterling has the best record of any English based player.

The Manchester City forward has scored five goals in 387 minutes of play in 2017/18.

That works out at one goal for every 77 minutes he’s played.

That’s marginally better than Sergio Aguero who has averaged one every 78 minutes.
