Produced a goal every 14 touches: Liverpool star is league's best

Luis Suarez scored 4 and set up 1 despite being 8th on the list for the amount of touches in the game.

Luis Suarez perhaps edged Eden Hazard on the night for the coveted and completely made-up 'Player of the Day award' as he scored 4 incredible goals, and got an assist for the other in Liverpool's 5-1 win over Norwich City. 

The Uruguayan international scored in the 15th, 29th and 35th minute to become the first Premier League player in history to score three hat-tricks against the same team, leaving Anthony Pilkington begging Suarez to leave them alone.

The most incredible statistic was the Liverpool striker managed to be the most influential man in the Premier League despite only having 70 touches. In comparison with Steven Gerrard's 108, Mesut Ozil's 118 and Santi Cazorla's 122 it shows how clinical the player really was with the ball. 

4 goals and 1 assist in 70 touches, is equal to a piece of match winning brilliance leaving the strikers foot once every 14 touches of the ball, which really is sensational.

It wasn't the only statistical piece of brilliance from the Liverpool striker as he had the most shots, and the most shots on target on the night in the whole division.

It was quite simply a faultless performance from one of, if not THE best player in the division. I'll be utterly gob-smacked if he doesn't finish this season as top-goalscorer, 13 Premier League GOALS in 9 Premier League games... mind-blowing!
