Jon Super/Associated Press
Sergio Aguero moved to 14 goals this season, as he returned to Premier League action following a calf injury.

Manchester City's Sergio Aguero netted against Cardiff City on Saturday, Jan. 18, to close the gap on Luis Suarez in the top-scorer charts, but the Argentine still remains eight goals behind Liverpool's forward.

Suarez has been in such scintillating form this season that a goalless match resembles a drought. However, with 22 goals in just 17 matches, the Uruguayan looks certain to join a select group of players who have scored 30 Premier League goals in a season.

Midway through Sunday's action, the top scorers are as follows:

1 Luis Suarez Liverpool 22
2 Sergio Aguero Manchester City 14
3 Loic Remy Newcastle United 11
= Daniel Sturridge Liverpool 11
= Yaya Toure Manchester City 11
6 Olivier Giroud Arsenal 9
= Eden Hazard Chelsea 9
= Romelu Lukaku Everton 9
= Alvaro Negredo Manchester City 9
= Jay Rodriguez Southampton 9
= Wayne Rooney Manchester United 9

Ones to Watch

Emmanuel Adebayor, 5 Goals

Emmanuel Adebayor looks set for a strong second half of the season following the sacking of Andre Villas-Boas

Tottenham Hotspur's Togolese striker may not challenge Suarez or Aguero this season, but he may just prove to be the form striker as the Premier League settles into 2014. 

Adebayor snatched a brace of goals against Swansea City on Sunday, as he moved to five goals in seven games.

Before the sacking of Andre Villas-Boas, Adebayor had been consigned to training with the Tottenham reserves.

However, Tim Sherwood has invested faith in a striker of proven pedigree. Adebayor provides a physical focal point for Tottenham's attack, which Roberto Soldado has not been able to provide yet. 

Benoit Assou-Ekotto, Spurs' on-loan left-back, certainly backs Adebayor.

 

Yohan Cabaye, 7 Goals

Cabaye has been in such good form this season that manager Alan Pardew has admitted his concern to Sky Sports that the Frenchman may move.
