Robin van Persie Vs Luis Suárez | Stats Comparison

Robin van Persie Vs Luis Suárez | Stats Comparison

This season’s two top scorers, Robin van Persie (18) and Luis Suárez (16), have been central to Manchester United and Liverpool teams who have had varying levels of success. Two very different players stylistically, the pair have established themselves as the Premier League’s striking elite. Van Persie’s game is a clinical one, and with the ability to score goals of every description from almost anywhere on the pitch, the Dutchman has carried on for United where he left off with …

Deadly Defoe at the Double | Premier League Striker Stats Comparison

On Saturday afternoon at Craven Cottage, a brace for Defoe took him to four goals in a week and his tally for the season up to 9. Aside from the goals, Defoe had a relatively quiet game, making just 14 passes in the entire 90 minutes.

This season we have been treated to a revised brand of football, Liverpool’s pass and move writ large and made a doctrine to live by.  The King has gone and now possession is king. Most games still have that heart in mouth moment as the ball is sometimes not so deftly passed amongst the back four in our own half as if taunting opposition …

The Curious Case of Olivier Giroud | Stats Comparison

Olivier Giroud's form since joining Arsenal has been indifferent. His performances in the Premier League have left a lot to be desired and after just one goal in ten appearances, it appears Giroud is a long way from filling the void left by his predecessor Robin Van Persie. But was Giroud brought in for that purpose? Or was he brought in for another reason? Breaking the Mould Giroud doesn't strike one as a typical 'Wenger-style' forward. When compared to the …

Luis Suarez: The Premier League's Most Important Player? | Rival Stats

In the world today there are always people we love to hate, especially in football. From Robbie Savage for his sneaky antics, to Gary Neville for his unbearable will to win and Didier Drogba for his schoolboy charades that seem to have permeated every inch of football culture.
