Arsenal FC's Thierry Henry surged clear at the top of the ESM Golden Shoe standings after the weekend's action.
Milan marksman makes move
Henry, who had scored a hat-trick in Arsenal's previous home game, was the only player in the top five to score this weekend. The only other top-ten player on target was Andriy Shevchenko. This enabled the Ukrainian, who struck in AC Milan's 2-1 defeat of AC Siena, to move up the rankings into a tie for sixth with Newcastle United FC's Alan Shearer and Djibril Cissé of AJ Auxerre on 42 points.

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.
