Robin Van Persie vs. Luis Suarez: Breaking Down the Stats Battle
Van Persie: 2157 minutes, Suárez: 2325 minutes

Robin van Persie and Luis Suarez are the two best strikers in the Premier League.  The numbers suggest as much, at least.

19 goals for the former and 18 goals for the latter.  These figures account for 31 percent and 40 percent of their team's League goals this season, respectively.

But who is currently having the better season? Is it the smooth Van Persie, or the mercurial Suarez? 

Per usual, the numbers provide an interesting perspective on the debate.  This list looks at each player's Premier League season so far and compares their data through different advanced metrics.
