Liverpool’s Luis Suarez sits atop the ESM Golden Shoe standings having scored an impressive 20 league goals at the halfway point of the Premier League season.

Considering the striker was suspended for the first six matches of the 2013-14 campaign, his strike rate this season is all the more impressive.

The only other change since the previous standings sees Real Sociedad’s Antoine Griezmann move into the top ten. The Frenchman’s strike against Athletic Bilbao in Sunday’s Basque derby saw him move up to ninth spot in the rankings.

*** Rules

Only the leading five countries – Spain, Italy, Germany, England and Portugal – in the UEFA rankings have two as their multiplier. This is to emphasise the difference in (international) performance level between clubs from those countries and those of other nations.A player cannot play first in a summer league (e.g. Norway) and then in a winter league (e.g. Spain) and combine the points totals for each season.
