The 2013/14 Premier League campaign has started with a bang - and three strikers in particular have taken centre stage.

Here are the current three in-form Premier League strikers:

Olivier Giroud | Arsenal

One of the in form strikers in the Premier League currently and with him now linking up with Mesut Ozil there is no reason why he can't bang in 20 goals this season, helping Arsenal challenge for the title.

He had a pretty decent record in France before arriving at Arsenal scoring nearly every second game - Tours FC 30 (61) and Montpellier 33 (73). So, it is really no wonder why Arsene Wenger bought him.

Although last season he only scored 11 goals in 34 games, he has already scored four goals in five games this season and doesn't look like stopping any time soon.

Daniel Sturridge | Liverpool

Liverpool fans were stoked when Sturridge signed for Liverpool, but was it such a good signing?

Sturridge had already played for Manchester City and Chelsea and many were seeing Liverpool as his last chance to make it big. He has thrived under manager Brendan Rodgers and produced the goods so far this season.

Many definitely saw that he was a great talent and played very well at times. He scored eight goals in 12 games while on loan at Bolton and in the 2011/12 season scored 11 goals in 30 games which was the most by any Chelsea player in the Premier League.

He has already scored 14 goals in 19 appearances for Liverpool but the big question is: can Sturridge continue banging in goals for fun with star striker Luis Suarez now back from his ban?

Christian Benteke | Aston Villa

Risen to fame in such a short amount of time, the injured striker will be a big loss for any team, but especially Aston Villa, who may have to battle with relegation this season.

It doesn't look to be a serious injury but he is set to miss four-six weeks. Benteke is now, without a doubt, Aston Villa's shining light and many predicted him to be leaving the Villains but he has decided to stay.

After performing well for Genk with 19 goals in 37 games he was signed to be a goalscoring machine and he truly is. In his first season in the Premier League he scored 19 goals in 34 games and this season he had started off looking to beat last year's tally with four goals in four games.

Hopefully for Villa he recovers from his injury quickly and starts scoring some goals again.
