The statistical best and the worst: Defenders

The statistical best and the worst: Defenders

In this three part series of articles I will be looking at the statistics behind Liverpool's best and worst players in each position. After already conceding four more goals than last season, with three games still to be played, Liverpool's defenders have no doubt come under questioning this season.

Dirk Kuyt, my player of the season

Since Dirk Kuyt’s signing for Liverpool in the summer of 2006 he has gained many plaudits but has also come across his fair share of negative press.
