And while the Frenchman is one of six players to have hit double figures for goals in Ligue 1 this season, he isn’t at the top. Monaco’s Wissam Ben Yedder is the current top scorer in Ligue 1 having netted 13 goals, one clear of Lille forward Jonathan David.

Mbappe is then joined by Martin Terrier, Gaetan Laborde, Ludovic Ajorque and Amine Gouiri on 10 goals, ahead of a duo on nine.
