Luis Suarez, 25 goals

The irresistible Suarez added yet another goal to his total this weekend, scoring the third in Liverpool's terrific win over Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday.

He reached 25 league goals for the season, joining Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler in the record books, per OptaJoe:

The Reds completely outplayed United in Manchester and their victory closes the gap to league leaders Chelsea to just four points. And Liverpool have a game in hand.

Suarez was terrific at Old Trafford, the key cog in their attacking machine which saw them devastate the Red Devils on the counter attack.

The Uruguayan's form will be essential for Liverpool to continue their campaign to win a first league title since 1990.

Along with Daniel Sturridge, second on the top scorers list, they form the most potent attacking pair in the Premier League this season.

While he did not register a goal against Manchester United, he did provide the assist for Suarez's strike.

He was also a constant thorn in the United defence, most notably Nemanja Vidic who was sent off for taking the Englishman down in the penalty area.

The 24-year-old is a shoe-in for England's World Cup squad this summer, with many eager to see him play in his favoured, central role, rather than Wayne Rooney.

His continued excellence has been a real fillip for Brendan Rodgers and Liverpool this season, and he will be hoping that he can record at least 20 league goals by the end of the season.

Rodriguez was on target again for Southampton this weekend, as they overcame a struggling Norwich side 4-2 at St Mary's.

The Englishman's goals have been essential for the Saints this season and they currently sit eighth in the table while defeated Norwich are 15th and flirting with relegation.

Rickie Lambert and Rodriguez have scored over 20 goals between them this season and are both making a claim to be included in Roy Hodgson's squad for Brazil.

If the 24-year-old can continue to bang in the goals and drive Southampton to a strong finish to the season, he may well be selected and deservedly so.
