Premier League Top Scorers Week 23: Updated List of EPL's Top Marksmen

Danny Collins@@dannycollins89Featured ColumnistJanuary 19, 2014

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:

Notable Mover

Sergio Aguero, 14 Goals

It speaks volumes of the quality of Manchester City's squad that Aguero has barely been missed since he was sidelined with a calf injury on Jan. 14. 

In his absence, Edin Dzeko and Alvaro Negredo have played three games together, bagging 11 goals between themNegredo with six and Dzeko with fiveas writes Simon Bajkowski of the Manchester Evening News.

The Argentine laid down a marker as he returned to the Premier League against Cardiff City on Saturday, hitting the fourth as Manchester City prevailed 4-2. 

The goalCity's 103rd of the seasonwas Aguero's 13th in his last 12 Premier League appearances, as tweeted by Match of the Day.

 

Ones to Watch

Emmanuel Adebayor, 5 Goals

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

Newcastle United's French playmaker moved to seven for the season with a well-placed shot and a free-kick on Saturday. The goals helped Newcastle breeze past West Ham Unitedand their former manager, Sam Allardyce3-1. 

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.
