Potential achievement versus actual achievement.

As you can see, we've chickened out of making a judgement on our top two because you could quite easily make a compelling argument for either.

Drogba won a Champions League title, three Premier League trophies and four FA Cups. All Suarez has is a League Cup.

Considering accolades only, Drogba is the winner hands down.

But when you take into account individual ability, Suarez trumps the Ivorian.

The Liverpool forward has a chance to be one of the top three best players in the world. Some would argue he's already very, very close. Maybe even there already.

Drogba was never at that level. He was world-class at his best, but that was only ever good enough to place him in the top 20 best players in the world.

Suarez is better than that. He just needs the trophies to prove it. Until then, we're copping out and ranking them joint first.
