Top 10: Sharpest shooters in the Premier League (1)

Published 1 Comments

Football News

Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has been widely acclaimed for his prolific form in 2013/14, with 22 goals already to his name in just 16 Premier League appearances.

The Uruguay international might be enjoying the purplest patch in his Anfield career to date, but he's still far from being the sharpest shooter in England's top-flight.

Based on statistics provided by Opta, the Daily Mail reports how the 26-year-old front-man's shot-conversion rate remains inferior to four other stars this season, with just 28 per cent of Suarez's shots on goal actually finding the back of the net.

The South American recently received the Premier League's Player of the Month award for December, after netting 10 goals in four games. Suarez scored four times against Norwich City, and added braces against West Ham, Tottenham Hotspur and Cardiff City.

Liverpool's leading marksman has maintained his hot-streak in 2014 too, adding another two goals to his tally in Sunday's 5-3 victory over Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium.

Suarez's goalscoring return looks even more impressive when you consider that his season only started at the end of September, as he served the remainder of his 10-game suspension for biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic.

He's on course to smash Alan Shearer's record of 34 goals scored in a single Premier League season, but if Suarez is going to really be considered as one of the greatest strikers to play in this country, then he needs to improve his shot-conversion rate.

Click through the tabs - above or below - to see the top 10 sharpest shooters in the division (minimum of five goals scored), and find out which players have a better shot-conversion rate than the Liverpool star.
