Luis Suarez: Liverpool's unstoppable hit man

Luis Suarez is in blistering form, blistering might not even do justice given how good he has been. He has terrified opposition defenders and given them nightmares. The Uruguayan has most goals (29) and assists (11) this season so far and the fact that he missed first five games of the season due to suspension makes the statistic even more impressive.

The wily striker is breaking records at will, on Sunday when he scored a spectacular goal in the 4-0 drubbing of Tottenham at Anfield, he surpassed Robbie Fowler's 28 goals to set the record of most goals in a Premier League season by a Liverpool player. He is just six goals away from breaking the all time record of 34 goals jointly set by Andy Cole(1993-94 season for Newcastle) and Alan Shearer (1994-95 for Blackburn Rovers).

He just needs one more goal to become the first Liverpool player to score 30 league goals in a single season since Ian Rush in 1986-87. The top goal-scorer in Premier League last season was Robin Van Persie with 26 goals and Suarez has already surpassed that tally with six games in hand.

With the kind of form the star striker is in, there is a good chance that he might set the record for most Premier League goals in a season.

Suarez has scored three hat-tricks this season and has become just the fourth player in Premier League history to score three hat-tricks in a season after Alan Shearer (twice), Ruud van Nistelrooy and Dimitar Berbatov.

Of the 29 goals scored in the season and not even single goal scored from the penalty spot, this says a lot about the striker.
