Liverpool: Luis Suarez scored an incredible Premier League header vs West Brom in 2013

  • Kobe Tong

Luis Suarez is arguably the proud owner of the greatest individual Premier League season ever.

To say that the Liverpool star was unstoppable during the 2013/14 campaign would be the mother of all understatements as he rampaged his way to 31 goals and 12 assists in just 33 league games.

Naturally, there's a case to be had for Mohamed Salah (2017/18), Cristiano Ronaldo (2007/08), John Terry (2004/05) and others, but there's no disputing that Suarez's masterpiece is right up there.

And perhaps the most striking thing about Suarez's final season on Merseyside is the fact that you can pinpoint within those astonishing statistics so many crazy performances that informed them.

From smashing home four goals against Norwich City to running riot at White Hart Lane, you can put your finger on at least five or six superhuman displays from Suarez throughout the campaign.

And another particularly bountiful afternoon for the future Barcelona poacher came during the emphatic 4-1 win over West Bromwich Albion at Anfield in October 2013.

It really was a day for spectacular goals because not only did Suarez help himself to an incredible hat-trick, naturally, but Daniel Sturridge also converted a delightful chip over Boaz Myhill.

Suarez's first goal also happened to be a Lionel Messi-like solo effort and he secured the match ball with a ruthless header, while James Morrison notched a consolation strike from the penalty spot.

However, we're actually here to talk about Suarez's sophomore effort from the game because there's good reason to think that it might be the greatest Premier League header of all time.

Suarez's superhuman header

And we say that because Suarez managed to find the top corner and escape Myhill's grasps with the use of his forehead despite connecting with the ball on the edge of the penalty area.

Yes, that's right, Suarez - despite not necessarily being known for his aerial ability - notched one of the longest-range headers in Premier League history with an absolute bullet of a connection.

Frankly, it still needs explaining almost a decade down the line, so be sure to draw your own conclusions by reliving Suarez's stunning header right here:

What an absolute missile!

So much power and accuracy

Naturally, a lot of the force behind the header was generated by Aly Cissokho's fizzing cross, but there was still a remarkable amount of skill required for Suarez to find the net from so far out.

You can see from the footage that Suarez really put some welly of his own behind the header with some forceful neck movement and the pace with which he was meeting the cross in the first place.



And frankly, you can't help feeling as though it's par for the course from Suarez in a season where some would argue that the performance of an individual Premier League player reached its zenith.
