WhoScored yesterday produced an excellent graphic, putting together a list of the best free kick takers in Europe this season.

Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Zlatan Ibrahimovic fail to make the top 20 whilst Gylfi Sigurdsson, Sebastian Larsson and Christian Eriksen represent the Premier League in the top 10.

Werder Bremen star Zlatko Junuzović takes top spot on the list, having scored 4 times from 17 direct free kick attempts.

The 27 year old winger has the best conversion ratio of 23.5%, closely followed by Miralem Pjanic and Hertha Berlin’s Ronny.

Roma star Miralem Pjanic has scored two free kicks this season, despite only hitting the target with 2 of his 10 free kicks.

Arsenal man Alexis Sanchez narrowly misses out on the top 10, appearing in 11th place with a 10% conversion rate.

Despite scoring four free kicks this season, Bayer Leverkusen set piece specialist Hakan Calhanoglu is statistically only the eight best free kick taker.
