1. Van persie
1. Van Persie*
*for the lone fact arguing Suarez over him would take the entire argument, but Suarez is better
The fact you even have Torres on this list is laughable. Fun fact though, Sturridge has as many goals for Liverpool in the EPL (15 in 20 Apps) as Torres has for Chelsea (15 in 87). What is the difference between the two? Oh about 38 million pounds...

I will admit Suarez creates more for his team than van persie..
But persie is a better finisher and is more of a pure striker..
Rooney is tearing up the league this year..
I can't believe you don't have him on this list..
I know moyes is trying to use him as a set up man to persie..
But Rooney will score plenty of goals..
He's definitely top 10 material..
Why else did mouhrino want him soo bad?
I'd rather have chamberlain or Walcott, (both similar players), over giroud..
Walcott and chamberlain have the best pace in the league..
You can't teach pace..
Giroud is an ok player but not top 10..
Arsenal only need giroud for tap ins..
Giroud scores very few goals by himself..
When Torres first moved to Chelsea he was rubbish..
But now that he is getting first team action..
He has turned into a better player..

All of Rooney's goals have come from set pieces. I did make a mistake leaving him off the top 10 entirely (I originally thought I had him at 6, but went to bump him down and forgot to put him back on), but he is not top 5. He is too slow to create on his own, and is declining quickly. He is the next Torres, declining at a young age after peaking and being over worked and getting injured all the time.
Giroud doesn't create his own goals often, but he still has a finishing ability. Though I am the same one that said he was garbage and Arsenal's weakness when we TD a few weeks ago. I don't know what I was thinking, you are right. He sucks.
Torres has no goals this season. He had 8 in 36 appearances in the Premier league last year. He has been washed up since 2011. He wasn't even good in his final year with Liverpool. He is done.
You not including Negredo or Michu though is your downfall. Negredo was 4th in La Liga in goals last year, with 25 (more than Soldado), and had 31 total goals last year in only 42 app. Meanwhile Michu scored 18 in the EPL last year, with no help around him. These two are for sure top 10.

I'm just not a huge Swansea Michu fan..
He reminds me too much of Toni, big and slow..
I really don't like michu's style of play, he drifts in and out too much for a striker..
We both agree giroud sucks ha ha..
With Torres.. People said the same thing about Michael Owen being washed up..
Owen then went on to have some success at man united..
When Torres first went to Chelsea he was horrible..
But he started to find his form last year in the UEFA cup, scoring alot of goals in that competition..
Mark my word Torres will be an improved man this year..
You are being too hard on rooney..
Maybe he has turned into less of a pure striker since van persie arrived..
But he is one of the best passers in the league and is still an excellent finisher..

Swansea sucks, so you shouldn't be a fan. No one should be a fan of Swansea. But, that is what makes Michu so much more impressive. He does it by himself, and is a top scorer in the league. His style may not be pretty to watch or entertaining, but it is effective.
Giroud is trying to prove both you and me wrong this season...
Owens scored 5 goals with Man U, and was mostly used as a sub against weak opponents. He had no success. Besides, Owens and Torres are not similar in anyway, besides dominating at Liverpool and then sucking once they left. I know you have a man-crush on Torres, but face the facts, he is done.
Rooney simply can't create on his own. He needs someone to do most of the work for him. His injuries over the years have slowed him.
