#4 Luis Suarez – Liverpool

One of the finest strikers to ever grace the Premier League

Love him, or hate him, Luis Suarez was one of the finest strikers ever to grace Premier League football. The Uruguayan international almost inspired Liverpool to the Premier League title in 2014, but defensively they fell short, and Gerrard slipped, as Manchester City claimed the crown ahead of their North-West rivals.

Suarez was instrumental during the campaign, and despite missing the first six games of the season, he managed to score 31 goals – the joint highest in a 38 game season.

His £22.5 million move from Ajax raised eyebrows as many predicted the forward to flop despite his goalscoring exploits in the Eredivisie. 

A series of incidents in England cast a dark shadow over his career. Whether it was for racially abusing Patrice Evra, biting Branislav Ivanovic, or taking a chunk out of Giorgio Chiellini's arm, Suarez was loathed by many.

For someone who always plays football with a smile on his face, Suarez continues to divide opinion in Barcelona as well.
