  • Suarez has scored more goals than many entire teams this season (N.B. Graph was made before today’s game).

  • Suarez has scored 10 more goals in 2013 than Robin van Persie.
  • Suarez has now scored 10 goals in December alone — more than any other Premier League player has ever managed within a single month.
  • He has now scored 19 goals at Anfield alone in 2013 — no other player has scored more than 19 overall in the Premier League this year.
  • Suarez has 14 goals from just six appearances at Anfield this season.
  • He has 19 goals in total this season so far — as much as the Golden Boot winner (Nicolas Anelka) achieved in the 2008/2009 season.
