Thierry Henry has moved to the top of the ESM Golden Shoe standings for the first time this season after scoring twice for Arsenal FC against Chelsea FC yesterday.
Henry was last season's top marksman in Europe and shows no sign of giving up his crown easily. The France forward's goals in the 2-2 draw at Highbury took his tally to 15 for the season, or 30 points in the Golden Shoe system. FC Internazionale Milano striker Adriano is close behind in fourth, having scored just one goal less than Henry.
On the up
Further down the rankings, Andriy Shevchenko is up to 17th with his two goals in AC Milan's 6-0 win against ACF Fiorentina, a jump of 17 places. However, the big mover of the week was Trabzonspor's Fatih Tekke who has moved from 53rd to 21st after his hat-trick in the club's 4-0 victory at Samsunspor.

Only the leading five countries (Spain, Italy, Germany, France and England) on the UEFA Ranking have two as their multiplier. This is to emphasise the difference in international performance level between clubs from those countries and those from the other countries.
A player cannot first play in a summer league (eg Norway) and then in a winter league (eg Spain) and combine the points total for each season.
