Romelu Lukaku, 16 Goals

Lukaku was back to goalscoring ways for his club after it seemed he could miss the match at Stoke with injury.

The Everton striker added another notch to his impressive strike count at the Potters, scoring a penalty for the opener in a 3-0 win.

The Toffees have struggled to maintain consistency during the first half of the campaign, but the maturity and progression of Lukaku has kept them afloat.

The Belgium international will need to maintain his fitness if the Goodison Park club have aspirations to finish in the European places at the end of the season.  

Riyad Mahrez, 14 Goals

The story of Mahrez's season will go down in legend if the Foxes become the most unlikely Premier League champions of all time. 

Leicester were once again confounding their critics on Saturday, slaying Manchester City in style and winning 3-1 at the Etihad Stadium. 

Mahrez danced through the City defence to earn his 14th strike of the season, and the Algerian wizard has been central to his team's incredible run.

The midfielder showed glimpses of his ability last season as Leicester avoided relegation, but this year he has reached world-class heights in terms of his consistency and potency.

WhoScored.com highlighted Mahrez's amazing numbers:

Jermain Defoe, 10 Goals

The extent of Liverpool's defensive problems were highlighted against Sunderland at Anfield, as the Reds gave away two late strikes and two precious points.

Defoe rolled back the years to score an 89th-minute equaliser, as Liverpool collapsed in the closing stages.

The striker has always had astute predatory senses in front of goal, but the Black Cats fans were sent into delirium by his very late effort from 10 yards. 

The Times' Gabriele Marcotti tipped his hat towards Defoe as the player struck to break Liverpool hearts:

Defoe remains Sunderland's best outlet for avoiding relegation this season, and a strong run of goalscoring form from the ex-Tottenham Hotspur striker could facilitate an escape.

Sam Allardyce's team are four points from safety, but they showed on Merseyside that they will not be going down without a fight. 

Newcastle United's 1-0 victory against West Bromwich Albion put increased space between themselves and Sunderland, but the Magpies are still within striking distance of Allardyce's men.
