Luis Suarez has made a better start to his Barcelona career than any other attacker in the club’s history.


The Uruguayan joined from Liverpool in 2014 and made his 100th appearance for the Spanish champions in Saturday’s shock defeat to Alaves.

But in his first 100 matches Suarez has scored 88 goals, and no other striker in Barcelona’s history has come close to matching that figure.

In second place is Samuel Eto’o, who had netted 68 times in his first 100 appearances. Third on the list is Neymar with 58 goals in his first century of games.
