Opta statistics from Liverpool's 3-0 victory over Southampton on Saturday put into perspective the sheer scale of work top scorer Luis Suarez gets through during a 90-minute match.

The Uruguayan side-footed home for the first goal at St Mary's, then helped to double the Reds' lead by setting up Raheem Sterling, and for good measure drew the foul which won a stoppage-time penalty.

Suarez launched four shots against the Saints, two of which were on target, with one beating Artur Boruc between the posts - his instinctive curled effort to break the deadlock on 16 minutes.

Liverpool's No.7 took 63 touches throughout the clash, attempted 38 passes and delivered four crosses; he also created two scoring chances for a teammate, most notably the pass which allowed Sterling to make it 2-0.

Additionally, the forward fulfilled his defensive responsibilities by making one interception, winning the single tackle he entered and claiming the aforementioned foul to hand Steven Gerrard a spot-kick.
