Sheffield United: The statistic that shows Billy Sharp is deadlier than Europe's top strikers, including Juventus' Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi of Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain's Kylian Mbappe

Billy Sharp has led the way so far in Sheffield United's push for the Premier League - and his 22 goals have also put him in some established company amongst European strikers.
