Illustrating Liverpool's Pressing vs Stoke City

Illustrating Liverpool's Pressing vs Stoke City

We’ve been collecting Pressing Stats since 2013 on Anfield Index and after watching Liverpool thrash Stoke City at Anfield I expected a really rough time when manually collecting these pressing stats. I wasn’t wrong as Liverpool pressed the midlanders 233 times which is the fourth highest ever collected on AnfieldIndex. The biggest surprise from this game was that Liverpool had made seven changes for this game yet their pressing game wasn’t effect and in fact their pressing efficiency improved. Roberto Firmino was to bolster Liverpool’s pressing whilst Kevin Stewart was very impressing on his League debut.

Daniel Sturridge has been called lazy in recent weeks but in this game he was involved way more than usual. He had 47 touches in the game and he usually averages around 31 – he held the ball up well and was involved in all of the positive play from Liverpool including a very well taken role.
