At present he is the third best striker going on his goals to games ratio. Here are the country’s most consistent scores;
Suarez 1.29 goals to games
Aguero 0.87 goals to games
Adebayor 0.83 goals to games
Sturridge 0.79 goals to games
Van Persie 0.64 goals to games
To take these figures further going on goals scored and expected goals based on their ratio Ade would finish in 4th of the top goal scorers.

Van Persie 17
Ok so yes this is highly speculative and all strikers would have to play each of the last 16 games and be injury free, but either way it’s interesting to look at.
If Ade was to find the net 18 times across the season he would finish with 1 goal more than his loan season from City (his best season to date), however he would have only played half a seaon!
Now if that is not enough to show Spurs fans just how good a player we have always had I don’t know what is!!!!
If you consider what we paid for Ade compared to the others we have got a hell of a bargain.
