"Sergio Ramos isn't a centre-back, he's whatever the kind of player he wants to be", Luis Enrique said during the half-time interval of Espanyol's league meeting with Real Madrid - after witnessing the Madrid captain find the net once again. Ramos' tally stands at 14 goals. Cristiano Ronaldo's departure has given Ramos free rein to satisfy his goal-scoring appetite.

Goals flowing

Boosted by the eight penalties which he has successfully converted this season, the defender has  scored more goals than six of the top strikers in Europe.
