Barcelona striker Luis Suarez is under scrutiny in Spain for failing to open his account and score a La Liga goal for the Catalans since his move from Liverpool in the summer for £65m.

The Uruguay international was the joint-top goalscorer in the European leagues last season –alongside Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo – after netting 31 Premier League goals for the Merseyside club.

However, he is struggling to replicate the same form in La Liga.

Having missed the first eight games of the campaign due to suspension, after biting Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini in the World Cup, the Uruguayan returned to action in a disappointing debut on 25 October during the 3-1 defeat against Barcelona's key rivals Real Madrid.

Suarez has since made six more La Liga appearances for Barcelona, playing a total of 514 minutes, and has been unable to break the duck – with his only two goals for the Catalans coming in the Champions League games against Paris Saint-Germain and Apoel.

The Uruguayan has instead managed to grab five assists for the Catalans in the process and was crucial in the 2-1 victory over Almeria earlier in the campaign after coming from the bench.

But after Barcelona's draw at Getafe on 13 December, when Suarez extended his goal drought to seven matches, Spanish pundits have started to question his adaptation to a team who already have Lionel Messi and Neymar up front.

Spanish newspaper AS pointed out: "Barcelona's most expensive signing ever has now gone seven league games without a goal, meaning that if he fails to score against Cordoba next week he will equal his worst goal drought, which goes back to his days at Ajax in the 2006-2007 season, when he had just turned 19."

Meanwhile, after the draw at Getafe, AS pointed out the Uruguayan had already equalled his worst goal drought at Liverpool, when in 2011-12 he was without a goal from the eighth game of the campaign against Manchester United to the 14th against Fulham, finishing that season with only 11 goals.
