Prime Suarez Vs Prime Salah, Which was better? by ThierryJay: 5:27pm On Oct 19, 2021
It's a topic worth revisiting this week, as Salah’s Liverpool prepare to take on Suarez’s Atletico Madrid. It's a meeting of two genuine modern greats; the Egyptian King against the Uruguayan whirlwind, played out in the wonderful surroundings of the Wanda Metropolitano.

Both were signed by Liverpool as ‘very good’ players, but went up levels once they set foot inside Anfield. Both scored on their debuts and never looked back. In terms of their numbers, Salah has 135 goals and 46 assists in 214 games for Liverpool while Suarez raked in 82goals and 29 assists in 133 games.

Regarding their playing style, Salah favors a marauding winger style cutting in from the right but sometimes also playing as a top 9. Suarez on the other hand was an aggressive technical beast deployed as the main striker but could also play a supportive role.

Both players have an eye for the spectacular, Salah with his mazy dribble goals and curlers that are often Messi-esque while Suarez could pull out any kind of outrageous goal from his magical hat especially acrobatic volleys, curlers, solo runs, free-kicks just name it.

Salah was the more successful in terms of trophies at Anfield as reflected in the UCL and EPL trophies, but this was more down to him having better quality teammates at his disposal while Suarez's time was spent in less illustrious company. Suarez's trophy value was demonstrated when by the following season, he helped a much better Barcelona side to win the treble while putting in some spectacular performances in the UCL knockout stages that season.

So if given a choice between the two in their prime for a single season, who would you go for to join your team?

Yeah I know. But they are comparable as forwards. Just like we know Salah is better than Mane or Firmino. In any case the question is really about who was more spectacular for Liverpool.

In an Era dominated by Messi and Ronaldo

Only Suárez snatched the European golden boot from both in their prime and did it twice albeit one was shared with Ronaldo

No one comes close to Prime Suarez asides Messi and Ronaldo

In terms of Numbers, only Lewandowski surpasses him, but you can make a case against Lewy playing for a super, stable team and in an attacking league, where it's somewhat easier to score goals compared to the rest of the top 5 leagues in Europe

Sallah is making waves and on the right path, but I will be deluded to say he's better than prime Suarez

First time I'll be agreeing with you here. Suarez was key to Barca's UCL win in 2015 just like Bale was for Madrid the previous season.

I agree. Only Suarez and Lewy have entered that otherworldly realm of almost 50 - 60 goals a season that Messi and CR regularly traded. Salah is yet to enter that realm.

Bale was not key to Madrid winning it in 2014....that was the year Ronaldo scored 17 goals ...he scored in all but just one game...the semi final first leg against bayern... bale only had 6 goals despite playing one game more than Ronaldo

Despite his antics, I still consider Suarez one of the most fierce strikers in history.
