1. Luis Suarez - 14
Just how on earth does one go about nullifying the threat of Suarez? That is the question that Premier League defenders and managers alike have been seriously pondering since the Liverpool striker returned from a 10-match ban earlier this season.
Since his comeback from that shocking bite on Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic, the 26-year-old has been utterly brilliant, scoring goals for fun and banishing memories of his previous indiscretions by proving his magnificence on the pitch.
With a stunning haul of 14 goals in just 10 games in the top-flight this season, it would be foolish to bet against the former Ajax man finishing well ahead of the chasing pack.
