United celebrate a Paul Pogba goal.

Who'll finish the season as United's top scorer?

There is a close fight going on in the battle to be Manchester United's leading goalscorer in the 2018/19 season.

Whether solely focusing on the Premier League, or considering all competitions, Romelu Lukaku is currently a single strike ahead of his closest competitor, midfielder Paul Pogba.

Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial are also in the hunt as they could easily force their way ahead of Lukaku and Pogba with a strong end to the campaign.

Romelu Lukaku leads the way in the scoring charts at the moment - but only by one goal.

Lukaku, who missed our last outing, the Emirates FA Cup defeat at Wolves, and both of Belgium's Euro 2020 qualifiers with a foot problem, leads the way with 15 goals.

Pogba is one behind, with five of his efforts coming from the penalty spot, as he enjoys one of the most productive seasons of his career so far.

Rashford improved his tally to 12 goals with the late consolation at Wolves last time out, nudging one ahead of French forward Martial in all competitions, with the pair tied on nine at Premier League level.

With so much at stake in the remaining part of the campaign, it will be interesting to see who comes out on top in May.

Paul Pogba.
Paul Pogba has scored 11 times in the Premier League this term.
