The Premier League table is starting to take shape, with Arsenal the early pacesetters of the 2013/14 campaign, recording 25 points from their opening 11 games.

Mesut Ozil's impact at the Emirates has been undeniable, while the goalscoring contribution of Aaron Ramsey has also helped take some of the burden off of Arsene Wenger's primary striker Olivier Giroud.

Liverpool are the Gunners' closest rivals, with the fine forward partnership of Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge propelling Brendan Rodgers's side to second spot, closely followed by Southampton - the surprise package of the season in third.

Leading marksman Rickie Lambert has nearly assisted as many goals as he's scored for Saints, with support from the likes of Adam Lallana and Jay Rodriguez.

Chelsea are back in fourth spot, four points adrift of leaders Arsenal, with Jose Mourinho struggling to find a regular goalscorer at the focal point of his Blues attack.

After a slow start to the season, Manchester United are now up to fifth, with Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney beginning to work well together. David Moyes will need both players to be firing on all cylinders if he is to have any chance of retaining the title at Old Trafford.

Everton are in sixth thanks largely to the goalscoring prowess of on-loan Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku, while Tottenham occupy seventh spot, having struggled to find the net due to a lack of service for summer signing Roberto Soldado.

Manchester City are back in eighth place with 19 points, despite boasting arguably the most fearsome front line, which includes the likes of Sergio Aguero, Alvaro Negredo and Edin Dzeko.

They say that title challenges are built on solid defences, but it's no secret that it's goals that actually win matches. On that basis, GiveMeSport provides a list of the top 10 strikers in the Premier League this season, based on both goals and assists.
