Luis Suarez scored four of Barcelona's eight against Deportivo on Wednesday

Luis Suarez had one of the best nights of his career on Wednesday in what is set to be his most prolific season yet.

The Uruguyan scored four times and provided three assists as Barcelona revitalised their La Liga title push by thumping Deportivo La Coruna 8-0.

His 30th league goal of the campaign took his overall tally to 49 - matching his best in all competitions for a season, achieved with Ajax in 2009-10.

So how does the former Liverpool forward compare with England's finest?

Suarez has 49 goals this season - the same as Harry Kane and Jamie Vardy combined - but has some way to go to beat Messi's record of 73 set in 2011-12.

Under the official Fantasy Premier League rules: That's four points for each of his four goals (making 16), plus three points for each of his three assists (adding a further nine) and two points for playing more than 60 minutes. The total could have risen further by up to three extra bonus points and, if he had been your captain, those points would have been doubled
