Ranking the 5 most in-form players in world football based on ratings

#3 Karim Benzema - 8.08 | Real Madrid

Real Madrid CF v CA Osasuna - La Liga Santander

Always the clinical striker, the star Frenchman bid his time until Cristiano Ronaldo left for Juventus. Ever since, Karim Benzema has become the indispensable star for Real Madrid.

Clearly the best player in the squad, and currently in his prime, Benzema has scored well over 20 goals per season since 2018, and he's on target to surpass his personal goalscoring record.

Although Benzema couldn't get his name on the scoresheet during the recent El Clasico matchup against Barcelona, the star has maintained ruthless precision in front of goal this season.

His seven assists in ten La Liga appearances have only been eclipsed by his nine goals so far. At this pace, if Los Blancos win La Liga, they'll have Benzema to thank.


#2 Kamaldeen Sulemana - 8.14 | Rennes

Kamaldeen Sulemana for Rennes

He's only 19 years old, but Sulemana has already taken France's Ligue 1 by storm. After playing in the Danish Superliga for two years and scoring a goal every three games in his sophomore year, the winger joined Rennes this season and is already repaying their faith in him.

Four goals and one assist in eleven games for Rennes in Ligue 1 this season has put the wonderkid on the radar of bigger European clubs, and his pacey dribbling has become a consistent threat to defenders in France. It's no surprise that Sulemana is Rennes' No. 10, and if his efforts remain top-notch, the sky is the limit for the star.


#1 Mohamed Salah - 8.88 | Liverpool

Manchester United v Liverpool - Premier League

Clearly, Liverpool's key marksman is currently the most in-form player in the world, and his hat-trick against Manchester United last weekend only adds to his brilliant all-round appeal.


Salah's appearances for Liverpool have been filled with goals and assists since the star joined in 2017, and recently, they've only increased in intensity.


5:43 AM · Oct 24, 2021

Fifteen direct goal contributions in just nine Premier League games puts the Egyptian international at the top of the Top Scorer charts in England, as well as second place in the Assist charts. Five goals in just three Champions League games also means that Salah's brilliance has shone continentally as well.

If the star continues in this form, he could guide Liverpool to yet another season with trophy wins.
