Liverpool striker Luis Suarez continues to be lauded as one of the most prolific players in the Premier League, having netted an impressive 30 goals in 31 league games this season.

However, judging by the Uruguay international's shots-to-goals ratio in 2013/14, he needs to improve his predatory instincts, in order to produce a better conversion rate in front of goal.

Suarez is currently ranked as the 12th most clinical player in England's top-flight this campaign, having netted only 20.98% of his shots.

His profligacy was highlighted in Liverpool's defeat against Chelsea at Anfield, with the South American marksman spurning five goalscoring opportunities as the hosts were beaten 2-0 last weekend.

Later that day the 27-year-old was crowned the PFA Premier League Player of the Year, which provided recognition from his peers for the standout season Suarez has enjoyed.

But, in light of these latest findings uncovering this deficiency, the Liverpool favourite will know what he needs to work on to take his game to the next level, as he bids to rival Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi as one of the world's best players.

Click through the tabs - above or below - for a full breakdown of the most clinical marksmen to have scored at least five goals in the Premier League this season, courtesy of statistics provided by talkSPORT.
