- 2011/12 – 30 goals (Arsenal)

The man was a beast at his peak. He was the premier league top scorer in two consecutive seasons from 2011/12 to 2012/13. In the 2011/12 season, he scored 30 goals with Arsenal and ended being up the top scorer. Subsequently, he made a switch to Manchester United next season and it was the same story once again.

Luis Suarez is the only player who managed to bag the European Golden Boot award twice but most importantly, in the prime Messi-Ronaldo era. He is probably one of the greatest no.9 in history. He won the award jointly in 2013-14 with Cristiano Ronaldo when he scored 31 goals for Liverpool in the Premier League. The next golden boot came in 2015-16 after he joined FC Barcelona and played alongside the likes of Lionel Messi and Neymar.

Jamie Vardy is one of the most under-rated strikers if not the most under-rated. The Leicester man was the top scorer in the 2019/20 season with 23 goals. His impact on the title-winning season for Leicester City is also incomparable.
