Week 28 of the Premier League season has come and gone and this weekend brought plenty more goals for all to enjoy.

With Manchester City playing for (and winning) the Capital One Cup, Liverpool's magnificent duo of Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge had a chance to enhance their lead atop the scoring charts, and at least one of them didn't disappoint.

Elsewhere, the likes of Eden Hazard and Loic Remy kept pace with the leading scorers in what was an excellent matchday for the league's most talented poachers.

Read on for an updated list of the EPL's leading scorers and a breakdown of its performers.

Another day, another monster performance from Liverpool's Suarez. Adding another goal and two assists to his tally, the Uruguayan now has an incredible 24 goals on the season, six more than his nearest challenger.

Liverpool's 3-0 win over Southampton was as dominant as they come, and Suarez had a foot in all three goals. The former Ajax man is enjoying an excellent season and has been instrumental to the Reds' success this season, with his team currently sitting comfortably in second place.

His 24 goals are a fantastic number, but as pointed out by 8 Fact Football, his 10 assists are nothing to scoff at, either:

As reported by Squawka, his goal against Southampton put him in some pretty elite company:

Liverpool can only hope Suarez is able to keep up this scoring pace, as his contributions will be vital in the Reds' chase for the EPL title.

 

Daniel Sturridge, 18 goals

Liverpool fans are spoiled. Not only does their team field the EPL's most talented scorer, but he also happens to form a partnership with the current No. 2.

Sturridge may not have been able to add to his season tally, but his pairing with Suarez is still producing some mind-boggling numbers. Total LFC gives us this little gem:

The young England international played an excellent match against Southampton and was unlucky not to score, but it's safe to believe he won't let that bother him too much. After all, he still did this:

Clearly, the 24-year-old is not lacking confidence right now.

 

Sergio Aguero, 15 goals

The Argentinian didn't see any EPL action this week, playing for the Capital One Cup with Manchester City.

Returning from injury, Aguero was able to start for the Citizens, but his impact was limited. He was replaced by Jesus Navas just before the hour mark, and the Spaniard wound up scoring the final goal that put the dagger in the tie.

Aguero has been a key component for City and is undoubtedly their most talented man up front, so the team will need him back in top form as soon as possible. ESPN's Miguel Delaney had some good news in that regard:

EPL action returns next week with another full slate of matches, giving these top scorers another opportunity to add to their tallies.
