The top-performing Premier League strikers of the weekend

Giroud Celebrates

Arsenal, Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur are all represented on our list of the weekend's top-performing Premier League strikers.

We look at the Premier League's best front men from the weekend's set of fixtures.

Sergio Aguero (Manchester City)

The diminutive Argentine opened the scoring from the spot just one minute into the 5-0 thumping of Newcastle United, and looked sharp throughout the clash at the Etihad Stadium, causing constant problems for the visitors' defence.

Also picked up an assist for David Silva's second in the 52nd-minute before coming off on the hour for debutant Wifried Bony ahead of Tuesday night's Champions League visit of Barcelona.

Edin Dzeko (Manchester City)

Dzeko was just as impressive as his strike-partner on the weekend, making an immediate impact in winning the spot-kick for Aguero's opener.

His cross lead to Samir Nasri doubling their advantage in the 12th-minute, before the Bosnian netted himself less than 10 minutes later after showing some fantastic control and composure to slot home David Silva's pass.

With £28 million rival Wilfried Bony watching on from the bench, the under-pressure front man also recorded five shots and two key passes over the course of the match, in what was a real statement of intent.

Olivier Giroud (Arsenal)

Arsenal were forced to work for Saturday's three points against a resilient Crystal Palace, with Olivier Giroud's presence up top proving fundamental to the 2-1 win.

The Frenchman lead the line with power and poise at Selhurst Park, and managed to pick up the deciding second on the stroke of half-time after pouncing on Julian Speroni's parried save.

His 10 won headers trailed just Aston Villa's Christian Benteke [14] and Hull's Michael Dawson [11] for the most on the weekend.

Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur)

The increasingly impressive Kane was at it again on the weekend, winning a penalty and scoring with the last kick of the game to earn his side a 2-2 draw with West Ham United after his initial 95th-minute spot-kick was saved.

Always in the thick of things with six shots, seven attempted take-ons and two key passes, the England hopeful also hit the post and saw a goal disallowed at White Hart Lane.
