Stephan El Shaarawy is better than Gonzalo Higuain

The 23-year-old on-loan Roma striker hit his fourth goal in five games against Empoli, as his brace helped the Giallorossi to a 3-1 away victory.

Statistically, over the last five matches Il Faraone has scored a goal every 94 minutes, better than Serie A’s current top scorer Gonzalo Higuain, who manages one every 104 minutes.

Still owned by , El Shaarawy’s form is in stark contrast to his spell at side Monaco where he started the current season, failing to find the net in 15 domestic French ties.  Before that, he managed just three strikes in 18 games for the Rossoneri during an injury-plagued 2014/15 campaign.

Allez Stephan!
