It is not news that Ferran Torres is scoring goals. After ending preseason as top scorer with three goals, the striker has started the league in the same rich vein of form. In three matches the Valencian has scored two goals after just 32 minutes on the field.
The figures are significant if we take into account the forward's effectiveness. Ferran has appeared in two league games, both as a substitute: against Cádiz he came on in the 85th minute and then scored the final goal in the 2-0 win in the 94th. Against Villarreal the striker came on a little earlier, in the 63rd minute, but only took five minutes to find the net to make it 3-3.
With two goals in 32 minutes, a goal every 16, he is the most lethal striker in La Liga ahead of Sevilla's Rafa Mir (a goal every 30 minutes) and Kaiky of Almería (a goal every 38 minutes).
If we take a European perspective and look at the continent's top five competitions, Ferran is seventh in the rankings just behind Monaco's Maghnes Akliouche who has scored a goal every 15 minutes and Union Berlin's Milos Pantovic and Lecce's Federico Di Francesco, who have both scored a goal every 14 minutes.
If we look at players who have scored more than one goal, Ferran is in second place behind Rennes' Ibrahim Salah who has scored twice in his 16 minutes on the field.
