Barclays premier league is called the best and the most entertaining league in the world for no reason. The games are competitive, the teams are strong and on a given even the team which is at the bottom of the table can surprise the league leaders.
With the new TV rights coming in, even the mid-table teams have got some good cash on their hands, and are buying players that would not have been believable even a few years ago. This has added to the entertainment and competitive stuff of the league definitely.
Today, we look at the top 5 striker which have graved the league, the Barclays premier league.
5) Luis Suarez
Oh, what Liverpool fans would not give to have him back.
Luis Suarez, when he arrived to the Merseyside, was not a name known across the world football. He arrived from Ajax, and as soon as he had arrived, another prolific striker, Torres went out of the club.
In the initial seasons of Suarez, fans did get to see his talent, but only a few times. He was wasteful with his chances, and was always surrounded by controversies. Be it Evra, Ivanovic or Moyes, his attention was not towards football, but rather why everone was after him.

He not only scored hat-tricks, he did everything that season, what a striker can do and hence gets his mention in our top 5 list.
