The Uruguayan wants to complete his best season. His next goal is to become the leading scorer in 38 games in the Premier League.

Worth noting, too, that none of Suarez’s goals have arrived from the penalty spot, whereas both of those current holders did.

Suarez’s rivals are lucky that he started late in the Premier, due to the sanction dragged on from last season. Otherwise, he probably would have already passed the record. Besides, becoming the leading scorer in the Premier League he deserves to be named the player of the season. Suarez is arguably the one of the best players in the world right now.
