Top-Table Liverpool Send A Message To Europe

When Sadio Mane’s second goal went flying into the back of Porto’s net, what had threatened to be a very, very good night at the office officially turned into something else entirely? For long spells of the first half, Liverpool were looking clinical, rather than dominant, but the third goal, so early in the second half, completely changed the complexion of the tie. And so, what had the potential to be a potentially sticky away fixture for Liverpool ended up …

Liverpool battered Porto 5-0 in a sensational game in Portugal, with Sadio Mané taking home the match-ball, but what were the key stats from the game? Goals, Goals, and somehow even more goals. Another week, another record broken by Mo Salah, who became only the 13th player to score 30 goals in a season for Liverpool, and the first since Luis Suarez back in 2014. Salah now has 30 from just 34 starts, and less than 3000 minutes. Whether or …

Elite Salah Can Become a Liverpool Icon

Elite Salah Can Become a Liverpool Icon

In amongst the carnage of the final minutes of Liverpool’s 2-2 draw with Spurs, Mo Salah scored a goal that had the potential to be one of the greatest Anfield moments of the last decade or so. The chaos, controversy and fume surrounding Kane’s two penalties and the disappointment of two points dropped cannot be allowed to take the shine off what was an absolutely extraordinary goal. Salah picks the ball up from a difficult angle, and appeals for handball, …

Liverpool were held to a 2-2 draw by Tottenham at Anfield in the craziest and most controversial circumstances. But what were the key stats from the game? Sumptuous Salah https://twitter.com/btsportscore/status/960191455951314944?ref_src=twcamp%5Eshare%7Ctwsrc%5Em5%7Ctwgr%5Eemail%7Ctwcon%5E7046%7Ctwterm%5E3 There really is no other place to start. Mo Salah is not only the quickest to reach 20 league goals for Liverpool in the PL era but among the fastest ever. George Allan is the quickest, and that was in the 19th Century, over 100 years ago. Salah’s is the …
Liverpool Should Have Recalled Divock Origi

Liverpool Should Have Recalled Divock Origi

I am a huge fan of Divock Origi. I admit that to many people that’s not an opinion that has much merit but there for me are a number of reasons why Origi is a great player. The key point in this article is not necessarily that Origi is a great player, although I think he has the potential to be one, but that Origi fits a hole in Liverpool’s squad – and a hole that he himself filled last …

Liverpool returned to form by sweeping aside Huddersfield, winning 3-0 to give themselves some breathing room in the top four. But what were the key stats from the game? Pass, Pass, & Pass Again 75% of possession is a lot. 894 passes is just a mind-blowing amount. Joel Matip’s 161 is the most by a Liverpool player in the Premier League ever, with Dejan Lovren not far behind on 140. Joe Gomez also broke 100, with Henderson, Milner and Robertson …

Home Implosion This was Liverpool’s first home defeat of the season, as the Reds’ 19 game unbeaten home run ended.

Not So Typical Liverpool

Not So Typical Liverpool

Typical Liverpool eh? The Reds followed up a sensational 4-3 win over Man City with a shoddy 1-0 defeat to Swansea, in the most Liverpool way possible. Now there’s no denying the performance was everything wrong with Liverpool at the moment – defensively shambolic in instances off set pieces, dominant but unable to break teams down, and missing critical opportunities. And even if Liverpool deserved something out of the game on chances alone, it was a turgid, listless, poor display, …
Key Stats from Swansea 1-0 Liverpool

Key Stats from Swansea 1-0 Liverpool

Liverpool fell to their first defeat in 19 games with a woeful performance as they lost 1-0 at the Liberty Stadium. Lack of clinical finishing costs Reds dearly Some days it’s your day. Some days it isn’t. Last week I mentioned how Salah, Firmino and Mane all scored low percentage chances, but this week it was the exact opposite story. Liverpool’s xG was 2.20 in this game without scoring, and all three of Liverpool’s star forwards missed chances with an …
