Yet another stat showing SAS is superior to United, City & Arsenal attack

Liverpool's strike force combine for one more statistic that puts them ahead of their rivals at Manchester United, Manchester City and the Gunners.

Atop the Premier League pile for the first time this season, Liverpool have returned 71 points from 32 matches and enjoy a two-point cushion over Chelsea. However, the most impressive statistic is that the Reds have scored 88 goals in those 32 games, eight more than the accolade-magnets for attacking gusto - Manchester City.

It should perhaps be no great surprise that Liverpool hold a Premier League record this season… according to Opta, Brendan Rodgers' side convert one shot from every five into a goal which is a superior conversion rate than all of the other Premier League participants.

Of Liverpool's 88 goals in the division, 49 have been struck by either Luis Suarez (29) or Daniel Sturridge (20), while Steven Gerrard also deserves commendation for returning 11.

When it comes to minutes per goals or assists, Suarez stands alone and has a superior ratio than even Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo as the Uruguayan is responsible for scoring or producing an assist once every 49 minutes on average.
