1. Luis Suarez (Liverpool) - 8.61 rating

There is absolutely no doubt about it - Luis Suarez has been the player of the season thus far in the Premier League.

The Uruguayan international missed the opening part of the season through suspension, but has come back like a train to score 25 goals in 24 games - as well as create 10 more for his teammate.

His pass completion percentage might be below 75, but he's been named man of the match in half of the games he's played this season, as well as making 29 tackles for the cause.

Perhaps it's stats you don't see which are also vital, with defensive focus on Suarez opening the door for his strike partner Daniel Sturridge.

If the Reds win the title for Brendan Rodgers this season, then it's Suarez who must take the plaudits.
