Odion Ighalo is the top scorer in English league football in 2015, finishing the calendar year three goals ahead of Harry Kane.

The Watford ace helped fire the Hornets into the Premier League and has continued his fine form in the top tier, netting 14 times so far in the 2015/16 campaign to take his total to 30 in the past 12 months.

Kane kicked off 2015 with a double in Tottenham's 5-3 win over Chelsea and, after scoring 10 in his past 10 Premier League games, finishes the year with 27 league strikes to his name.
