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 …

Coutinho stats compared to Iniesta, Ozil, Silva at 23 years old

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 …

Diamond in the Rough - Illustrating Liverpool's Pressing vs Swansea

As you may already know I collect pressing stats for every Liverpool Premier League game, I know - what a crazy thing to do - but it's popular, people enjoy the discussions resulting from the stats collection and we're learning a lot about some of the players at Liverpool Football Club. Twitter was adamant that the stats for this game shouldn't be collected, the game should be binned and that I should take the day off from doing this painful task …

Illustrating Liverpool's Pressing in the last three games

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 …

Illustrating Liverpool's Pressing vs Southampton

We've been collecting Pressing Stats since 2013 on Anfield Index and after watching Southampton beat Liverpool at St Mary's I expected an easier time when manually collecting these pressing stats. It was a close run thing Liverpool pressed more than they did against Crystal Palace but Southampton had much more of the ball than Palace did and Liverpool pressed the ball every 2.84 passes that Southampton attempted - that's the worst it's been since the loss at Watford. Whilst Liverpool will always …

Illustrating Liverpool's Pressing Vs Man City & Crystal Palace

We've been collecting Pressing Stats since 2013 on Anfield Index and after watching Manchester City get demolished last Wednesday at Anfield I expected a torrid time when manually collecting these pressing stats. My hunch was pretty much spot on against Manchester City, Liverpool's pressing effort was one of the highest of all time as they pressed the ball every 1.95 times Manchester City attempted a pass. Against Aston Villa Liverpool pressed the ball every 1.94 times the Villains passed the ball, so a very similar amount …
