Luis Suarez may be struggling a tad in front of goal recently, but he's certainly chipping in elsewhere.

The Uruguayan has been in superb form this season, and already has 23 strikes to his name already this term - but is without a goal in his last five games.

Don't worry too much about him however - his assist in Liverpool's 4-3 win over Swansea on Sunday means he's now the joint-leading assist provider in the Premier League.

That got us thinking about whether the Anfield ace is the most complete player in the Premier League - or indeed Europe.

So we've done a bit of digging around to find the player who is a jack of all trades and well, a master of them too.

We've looked at four key areas that would define a complete player - goals, assists, passing and tackling. We've taken the top 20 players from the top five leagues to find out which one comes out on top.

We've ranked the best players from all over Europe compared to their rivals in each of these categories, then added the totals up to produce an overall ranking.

So far example:

Marco Reus: Goals - 8, Assists - 8, Passing accuracy - 74.8%, Tackles made - 23

The German ranked 14th overall in goals, 11th in assists, 18th in passing, and 10th in tackling. That combines together for a finishing score of 53, which puts him in 18th place overall.

Note: Players with the same ranking have been split by games played this season. Please remember it is the lower overall score which is better.

Got it? It doesn't matter if you don't, all you have to do is click through to find out who the most complete player is.
