Irelia normally has a much larger longest kill spree than her enemy does. Typically, Irelia takes more damage than Thresh. This is usually reflective of differing health capacities; however, it can also illustrate that the one champ has less agility and thus is not able to flee from further damage when engaged or poked.

Irelia commonly takes many more minion kills than Thresh. Champions that don't get very much CS typically do not need much CS to be effective. They are capable of scaling adequately off of their abilities alone. However, champions with many minion kills, such as carries, usually have to have a lot of items to be effective. In either situation, try to outperform the values displayed here to do well.
