Here I am taking a look at the Premier League's current top five scorers. With one leader, and the rest tied on goals it will be a great sight to see who continues to blast balls into the backs of the net. 

Daniel Sturridge (Liverpool) - 5 Goals

Currently the top scorer of England's top division of football, Sturridge has had a fantastic start to the 2013-14 campaign.

With five goals in Liverpool's first six games - three of which were winners - he has led the Liverpool line with great ability. As Luis Suarez is back from his ban, people were wondering if Sturridge would continue featuring regularly for Liverpool, and the answer seems to be YES.

Against Sunderland on the weekend, the attacking duo of Suarez and Sturridge was back and the Liverpool attack was sparked back into life.

Sturridge assisted Suarez twice, while also grabbing a goal for himself in the process. A great talent who is shining since his January move last season, Sturridge is a serious contender this season for the Premier League Golden Boot Award.

Christian Benteke (Aston Villa) - 4 Goals

Ruled out for several weeks after coming off against Norwich City, Benteke has still however managed to show his value and worth. With four goals to his name in about four-and-a-half games, Benteke has had a fantastic start to the season.

Although a hassle over the summer, Benteke committed his future to Villa and the club and fans will be delighted that he did. Leading the Aston Villa front line with dominance, he posses a great eye for goal and a fantastic ability to hit the back of the net.

Surely when back from injury Benteke will continued to be feared by clubs across the Premier League. 

Olivier Giroud (Arsenal) - 4 Goals

With four goals in Arsenal's first four games, Giroud has had a sensational start to the new Premier League season. The prolific striker had a relatively quiet season prior, however his second season with Arsenal looks to be a promising one.

He has picked up four goals and two assists in six games, Giroud looks to be a great man to lead the Gunners attack. Missing out on a world renowned striker this year, Giroud has expectations to live up to, and will be working hard to fulfil the expectations.

With the creative geniuses playing alongside him in the form of Santi Cazorla, Mesut Ozil and Jack Wilshere, Giroud will be spoilt with chances throughout the season to score goals.

Aaron Ramsey (Arsenal) - 4 Goals

The man on fire as I would describe, Ramsey has been a sensation for Arsenal so far. Scoring four goals in Arsenal's last three Premier League games, as well as picking up an assist and helping out with three consecutive clean sheets, Ramsey is looking a monster in the Arsenal midfield.

With defensive capability as well as quality going forward, Ramsey is living up to the potential he has had for so long. The Welsh captain is pushing out the likes of Santi Cazorla and Jack Wilshere for a spot in the starting XI in Arsenal's midfield, and I'm sure we can all see why. 

Yaya Toure (Manchester City) - 4 Goals

Surprisingly the only top scorer who plays for a Manchester Club, Yaya Toure has scored more goals than team-mates Sergio Aguero, Alvaro Negredo as well as players from City's Manchester rivals in the likes of Robin Van Persie and Wayne Rooney.

Toure is a true powerhouse at the heart of Manchester City's midfield and is dominating games in the middle of the park. A shaky game against Bayern Munich in the Champions League may have made him look like a little kitten, but in the Premier League the big Ivorian is a Lion and he is tearing apart his opposition.

Toure is packed with determination, power as well as speed, and will surely be one to continue to watch for his goalscoring abilities. 

Undoubtedly all these players have had fantastic starts to the season. However, they obviously may not finish as the top five scorers come the end of the season, but they will surely be doing all they can to stay up near the top.
