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 Everton game was brilliant display from the Reds and the correct result but what did the stats say? Have a listen to our Under Pressure podcast below to find out about all of the analysis!
The podcast embedded above has all the analysis and the images below support the content so please do have a listen and any feedback either on this article on the @AnfieldIndex Twitter account is appreciated!
