Ezreal typically has a much larger longest killing spree than his counter does. Typically, Ezreal receives more damage than Zilean. This often reflects differing health capacities, but it can also hint that the one champion has less agility and thus is unable to escape additional harm when engaged or poked.

In Ezreal vs Zilean matchups, Ezreal commonly tallies many more minion kills than Zilean. Champions who on average do not finish with many minion kills normally don't require much CS to be effective.
