I'm not sure I'd go that far either. Maybe he's top 3 on form but is it really fair to say he's ahead of any of Ronaldo, Messi and Ibrahimovic when they're doing it in the Champions League as well?
I'm not saying he isn't a great player but at the moment he's mostly bullying the smaller clubs; now that isn't a bad thing, you still need to win those games, but I'd like to see him do it consistently against top class opposition.
Of course it's not his fault that he's not in the Champions League. We can reassess after the World Cup.
