Luis Suárez has experienced a remarkable purple patch so far this season scoring 10 goals from a mere 12 games in the Premier League. Further, Suárez has scored 5 goals from his last 4 consecutive games, a streak surpassing his previous record of scoring in only two consecutive Premier League games (on three occasions). Thus, I’ve decided to use a number of simple attacking metrics to break down his form and discover why he’s on the best streak of his Liverpool career to date.
On August 25th, arguably Liverpool’s biggest transfer saga since Fernando Torres came to a refreshing conclusion, with the capture of Real Madrid’s Nuri Şahin falling in the club’s favour – to the vitriol of many concerned Gunners. Şahin signed on loan for a fee of £1.6million, with Liverpool paying £75,000 per week of his wages; equating to a total financial cost of £5.6million for the season ahead. For the next 12 months at least, Liverpool have secured a player that most hope will finally fill the void, at least in the short term, left 3 years ago by the departure of Xabi Alonso.
