STATS: Why can Liverpool striker only score against rubbish teams?

Luis Suarez will likely win the Golden Boot this season after amassing an incredible 22 goals in 16 appearances. However, when looking at the games he has played in this season and the teams he has scored against, a strange pattern starts to emerge.

Sunderland – 19th – 2 goals
Crystal Palace – 20th – 1 goal
Newcastle – 8th – 0 goals
West Brom – 14th – 3 goals
Arsenal – 3rd – 0 goals
Fulham – 16h – 2 goals
Everton – 5th – 1 goal
Hull – 10th – 0 goals
Norwich – 15th – 4 goals
West Ham – 17th – 2 goals
Spurs – 6th – 2 goals
Cardiff – 18th – 2 goals
Manchester City – 1st – 0 goals
Chelsea – 2nd – 0 goals
Hull – 10th – 1 goal
Stoke – 12th – 2 goals

Suarez has played against all the teams in the top four this season but hasn’t scored a single goal in those games.

An incredible 60% of the goals he’s scored this season have come against teams ranked 15th or lower. 82% of the goals he’s scored have been against teams in the bottom half of the table.
