The list is based on how much these players have outperformed their xG or 'expected goals' tally.

xG measures the quality of chances that an attacker has to score goals.

As you can see, Messi is 3rd: even though the Argentine has scored more goals than any other player in the list, he has outperformed his xG by 'mere' 21,33%.

Tottenham duo Son Heung-Min and Harry Kane are the only 2 players more efficient than Leo.
