Key Stats from Liverpool 1-1 Everton

Key Stats from Liverpool 1-1 Everton

Liverpool were frustrated again as they registered another 1-1 draw at home against opposition that they really should have been beating. But what were the key stats from the Merseyside Derby? Salah Leads From The Front Once again, it was the Mo Salah show at Anfield. Despite only playing 67 minutes, Salah notched six key passes, seven dribbles, and seven shots. His influence on the game was clear as he was Liverpool’s most dangerous player, scoring an absolutely world class …
Liverpool 1-1 Everton - Reds drop points in the Derby

Liverpool 1-1 Everton - Reds drop points in the Derby

Mo Salah scored a brilliant goal, and Wayne Rooney equalised from the spot as Liverpool were held to a frustrating and slightly unfair 1-1 draw in a tense, hard-fought Merseyside Derby. Tactically speaking, Everton will have been largely happy to sit back and let Liverpool control the game. And whilst the Reds did clearly dictate, dominating possession and having all of the chances, Everton largely frustrated them. That’s not to say that Liverpool didn’t have chances, with James Milner having …
Key Stats from Liverpool 7-0 Spartak Moscow

Key Stats from Liverpool 7-0 Spartak Moscow

Liverpool ran riot on a famous and record-breaking night at Anfield, putting Spartak Moscow to the sword to secure their second 7-0 win of the group stage and cruise into the Last 16 of the Champions League as group winners. So what were the key stats from the night? Clinical Reds Don’t Dominate When I say that Liverpool didn’t dominate this game, what I mean is that on paper they weren’t as wholly on top of every stat as you’d …
Rampant Coutinho Still Liverpool's Main Man

Rampant Coutinho Still Liverpool's Main Man

With their star-studded performance against Stoke, Sadio Mane and Mo Salah were once again the men in the lights. Salah, in particular, has seen himself lauded after just about every Liverpool game, following a phenomenal November, in which he scored eight goals from six games. Mane meanwhile, has once again been reminding Liverpool fans that he is a key man for the side, with two assists against West Ham, a brilliant goalscoring performance against Sevilla and then, of course, his …
Key Stats from Brighton 1-5 Liverpool

Key Stats from Brighton 1-5 Liverpool

Liverpool vs Brighton – The Key Stats The Reds won 5-1 on the South Coast to move 4th in the Premier League, but which stats (or sets of stats), stood out for me? Coutinho Samba Whilst Coutinho’s two main stats in this game speak for themselves – one goal and three assists – his underlying stats are exceptional too. Three chances created is very good anyway, but the fact that that culminated in an xA of 0.93 is fantastic; comfortably …
Liverpool's Fifty Million Managers

Liverpool's Fifty Million Managers

Has Jurgen Klopp finally started to get the hang of rotation? Or is this another false dawn? Against Chelsea, both Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane were rested, as Klopp made some big changes from the side that drew with Sevilla. Then against Stoke, Klopp left Phil Coutinho and Mo Salah out of the starting line-up. There has also been rotation in midfield, as Henderson, Wijnaldum and Milner were rotated whilst Emre Can suffered a niggling injury. With Can returning, both …
Every Week

Every Week "Important" For Liverpool FC

Liverpool returned from the international break to begin their busiest period of the season with a 3-0 win over Saints to begin what has been labelled a hugely important week, ahead of a frantic run to January. Whilst this is, in my opinion at least, technically true, it’s also hugely misleading. Almost every week in the season can be (and has been) described as vitally important. It was important we did well against City. It was important we recovered from …
The International Break Proves To Be Just That For Liverpool

The International Break Proves To Be Just That For Liverpool

A lot has been made of Liverpool over the international break. A lot has been made of the potential use of a new formation, a lot has been made of the return to fitness of our full squad and what that means, something that this article will address quite heavily, and a lot has been made of where Liverpool’s season is at after a good run of results following a disastrous defeat to Spurs. But this article is more focused …
Nathaniel Clyne - Bad News Is Better Than No News

Nathaniel Clyne - Bad News Is Better Than No News

On the face of it, the prospect of Nathaniel Clyne, Liverpool’s first choice right-back and valuable first team player, being injured for up to three months after having surgery on a back injury is definitely not a good thing. The reasons why it’s a bad thing are inherently obvious, and this article isn’t here to be balanced. Obviously the prospect of missing an experienced first team player who is easily the best option we have in his position for a …
Crisis? What Crisis at Liverpool FC?

Crisis? What Crisis at Liverpool FC?

At the start of the season I made a rather large and controversial defence of Liverpool’s ability to win the title this season with the current squad. Here in November, 12 points off the pace, that’s looking increasingly like a pipedream, but I stand by the majority of the points that I made in the article. In terms of opponents, the only Premier League team that we are currently miles behind is Man City, a possibility that I suggested, with …
