Observations as Liverpool Pound Five Past Porto!

Observations as Liverpool Pound Five Past Porto!

Five times! Words that Liverpool fans wish to change to six times this season and they're a step closer to realising the dream as the Merseysiders pounded Porto's goal FIVE TIMES! Liverpool's victories have been attributed all season to their fab four, erm three, but this win was about the entire team. Jurgen Klopp's selections are doubted weekly, but he was vindicated with his choice in the midfield and defence tonight. Here are a few of my observations on the game. …

Analysis: Mohamed Salah compared to Sadio Mane

Analysis: Mohamed Salah compared to Sadio Mane

When I look back at the 2016/17 season one of the things many Liverpool fans bemoaned was the lack of a Sadio Mane back-up. When the Senegalese was missing, either due to international duty or injury, the Reds lacked pace and power in the team as well as a real goal threat. With the news breaking that Liverpool are close to signing Mohamed Salah the team at AI Under Pressure decided to look at the stats for both Mohamed Salah and …

Another season another big name at Liverpool Football Club linked to leave. This time it's the Brazilian, baby faced assassin, Philippe Coutinho! Liverpool's player of the year really put himself in the shop window on Wednesday night with a hat trick in the Copa America however rumours of some of Europe's elite sniffing around him were coming to the fore earlier in the week. On the latest Anfield Index podcast Simon Brundish and I discussed Coutinho's performances this season at …

We've been collecting Pressing Stats since 2013 on Anfield Index and after watching Liverpool's last three games and then collecting the pressing stats it's safe to say that they were a mixed bag! There were some surprising performances - many will be shocked to hear that Joe Allen was key in pressing in all three games and also Ojo against Bournemouth was simple fantastic. Ojo is showing signs of a raw talent that Jurgen Klopp could hone into something special. The …

Illustrating Liverpool's Pressing vs Tottenham

We've been collecting Pressing Stats since 2013 on Anfield Index and after watching Liverpool draw with Spurs at Anfield I expected a really rough time when manually collecting these pressing stats. I wasn't wrong as Liverpool pressed the Londoners 239 times which is the second highest ever collected on AnfieldIndex. Whilst Liverpool will always miss Roberto Firmino in terms of his goals and assists output he is also the best this season at pressing the ball. In his absence it was Adam …
