Luis Suárez's 11 Premier League goals from 128 shots is beyond disappointing. Remember this is a guy that used to score goals for fun in the Eredivisie.
There were a multitude of reasons why Suárez was inefficient last season: he was burdened with an inept, uncultured and clumsy Andy Carroll. Then there was Stewart "Nothing" Downing and Charlie "Hollywood passes only" Adam.
The racial vilification saga involving Patrice Evra psychologically affected the Uruguayan. The woodwork consistently denying Suárez was another obstacle.
Last season, he showed glimpses of world-class ability: a magical hat trick against Norwich City, excellence in a 3-0 win over Everton, and four goals against Chile.
A few weeks ago, he embarrassed the Chileans again, this time scoring a hat trick in a 6-4 win.
He is a special forward.
