Montella moves clear at summit

ESM Golden Shoe: AS Roma's Vincenzo Montella ended Thierry Henry's run at the top of the standings.
Vincenzo Montella ended holder Thierry Henry's run at the top of the ESM Golden Shoe standings with his winner for AS Roma at ACF Fiorentina on Sunday.

Eto'o closing
While Henry has not scored in five games for Arsenal FC, Montella's eighth Serie A goal in seven matches took him two points clear, and Samuel Eto'o is not far behind after his early effort for FC Barcelona against Real Racing Club Santander.

Bubbling under
Also moving up the rankings are Crystal Palace FC's Andrew Johnson, whose fine form continued with a goal against Tottenham Hotspur FC, and Ricardo Oliveira, up 27 places to joint 24th after registering twice for Real Betis Balompié at home to CD Numancia.

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.
