Premier League's leading goalscorers in 2013 (1)

As the debate surrounding which team possesses the best strike partnership in the Premier League continues, Liverpool duo Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge showed once again on Saturday why their names are firmly in the frame as the finest pair in England's top-flight.

Both players were on the scoresheet as the Reds cruised to a convincing 4-2 victory over West Brom, with the Uruguayan netting an impressive treble in his man-of-the-match display at Anfield.

It was Suarez's fourth Liverpool hat-trick - but first in front of a home crowd - taking his season's tally to six goals, despite the fact he missed the first five games of 2013/14, as he served the remainder of his 10-game ban for biting Branislav Ivanovic.

He sits two goals behind teammate Sturridge, whose exquisite chip at the weekend drew many plaudits of its own, and was arguably the best of the eight he has converted this campaign, which puts him at the top of the Golden Boot leaderboard.

Manchester City's Sergio Aguero separates Sturridge and Suarez, after he netted his seventh Premier League goal of the season in Sunday's 2-1 victory over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, while on-loan Blues striker Romelu Lukaku scored his fifth goal of the campaign for parent club Everton in their 2-0 away win against Aston Villa.

Robin van Persie and Olivier Giroud both also found the net for Manchester United and Arsenal, in respective wins against Stoke City and Crystal Palace, to join Aaron Ramsey and Loic Remy as the only other players to score at least five goals in the Premier League this season.

However, with the 2013/14 campaign still less than 10 games old, a look at the goalscoring charts for the whole of 2013 will provide a more accurate tally of the most prolific players in the Premier League this year.

Click through the tabs - above or below - to check out the most in-form goal-getters, including a surprise inclusion who no longer plays in the Premier League, but remains among the highest scorers in the division in 2013!
