Gunners forward set to better Suarez’s time at Anfield?
Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez may be in line for a memorable Premier League career if he carries on like he is at the moment, with statistics showing he is far out-performing Luis Suarez’s early days for Liverpool.
The Uruguayan went on to become one of the best players in the world during his time at Anfield, but was a little slower than Sanchez to adjust to the pace of the English game when he arrived in this country.
Sanchez, on the other hand, has been superb since his summer move from Barcelona, where, coincidentally, he was replaced by Suarez, and here’s how he compares after his first thirteen games.

Minutes per goal: Suarez 275.5, Sanchez 116.78
