Luis Suarez continues his great form this season with another 2 goals to take him to joint top of the goalscorer table along with team mate Daniel Sturridge and Sergio Aguero. This is unbelievably impressive as Suarez missed the first five Premier League games of the season.

Luis Suarez is Liverpool’s’ main man at the moment scoring eight goals in six games, in the game against fulham he had a shot every 11.25 minutes with a shot every 30 minutes being on target and troubling the goalkeeper. Liverpool have now scored 16 goals in six league games since Suarez returned from a 10-game suspension, with the Uruguayan and Daniel Sturridge grabbing 12 of them – more than the Fulham team combined have scored this season. Suarez only managed to get 30% of his 10 shots on target during this game meaning he scored 2 out of the 3 shots that he did have on target. He didn’t manage to get one shot on target from outside of the area.

suarexz122Suarez made a total of 42 passes and completed 33 of them which works out to be 79% pass accuracy, this is his worst passing display this season 7% off of his best which was 86% against West Brom. Suarez completed all 4 of his passes in his own half and managed to complete 74% of his passes in the opponents half. He managed to complete 77% of his passes in the final third.

Coutinho attempted the most passes to Suarez none resulted in an assist for him though, Gerrard created the goalscoring opportunity for Suarez passing the ball into the opposing penalty area for Suarez to finish the play off and put it in the back of the net. With Suarez and Sturridge being on fire in front of goal at the moment it must be an easy job for Liverpool’s’ midfielders to put the ball into the danger areas where the SAS partnership can put the ball into the back of the net.

Luis Suarez’s goal tally went up to 8 after his 2 goals on Saturday afternoon and he has scored 100% of his goals from inside of the opposing penalty area. He has scored 62.5% of his goals with his right foot, 12.5% with his left and 25% of his goals have been scored with his head.

Suarez likes to attack defences and take the defenders on and you will always see him attacking the penalty area with his bulldog like runs which hardly any teams seem to be able to handle at the moment. Suarez has the best minutes per goal ratio in the league this season with an average of one goal every 67.4 minutes the next closest is Sergio Aguero who scores a goal every 84.9 minutes.

On the whole Luis Suarez had a great game vs Fulham and was the magician up top for Liverpool creating chances and finishing the chances that other players made for him. If Suarez continues this form for the whole season, and keeps his nose clean from any controversy, he will be contending for player of the season and the golden boot.
