Luis Suarez became only the seventh player to score 30 Premier League goals in a single season after netting in Liverpool's 3-2 victory over Norwich City at Carrow Road on Easter Sunday.

The Uruguayan striker has enjoyed a scintillating individual campaign that could get even better with Brendan Rodgers's side still in contention for the domestic title in 2013/14.

Suarez missed the first five games of the season as he served the remainder of his 10-game ban from the Football Association, which makes this term's goalscoring exploits even more impressive.

The South American has recorded 30 goals in 30 appearances in England's top-flight, reaching the landmark for the first time in his Anfield career. He becomes one of only two players still actively playing in the Premier League to have achieved the feat, occurring for the first time since 2011/12.

"[The 30 goals] is important for myself but my target is to help the team every time," enthused Suarez after the Norwich victory last weekend. "We are on the top now and we enjoy that."

His achievement is all the more remarkable when you consider that not a single one of his 30 goals has come from the penalty spot, with Steven Gerrard on spot-kick duty for Liverpool this season.

The current record number of goals in a single Premier League season is 34, and with three games remaining it wouldn't come as a surprise to see the 27-year-old surpass that, with games against Chelsea, Crystal Palace and Newcastle United to come.
