'SCS' Suarez-Coutinho-Sturridge | Permutations and combinations

'SCS' Suarez-Coutinho-Sturridge | Permutations and combinations

(Please note that the article revolves around Luis Suarez, Daniel Sturridge and Phillipe Coutinho. Whenever I refer a group of players as ‘the trio’ or ‘the three’ I am referring to those three players. ) No matter which part of the world you’re in or what time of the day it is, an hour prior to kick off usually brings anxiety, nervous energy, weird superstitions and social media chaos. Whether you’re on your way back home from work, breaking your …
Partnership Comparison: Suárez & Sturridge vs Agüero & Negredo

Partnership Comparison: Suárez & Sturridge vs Agüero & Negredo

Disclaimer: The stats used were valid as late as 1st Decemeber 2013 due to this article being written after both the Liverpool and Manchester City games. Following on from my previous article, in which I researched into and compared the Liverpool and Manchester United strike partnerships to see which one was better, I thought I would switch my attention to the other side of the city that has gave us Oasis and Shayne Ward - amongst others - to put …
Which Partnership is Better? Suárez & Sturridge vs Rooney & RVP

Which Partnership is Better? Suárez & Sturridge vs Rooney & RVP

Disclaimer: The stats used were valid as late as 22nd November 2013 due to this article being written before this weekend's games.  At the top level of football the lone striker is becoming the regular sight, with strike partnerships looking to be a thing of the past. Managers now identify the importance of controlling the middle of the park when it comes to winning games, and since weakening the defence is asking for trouble, the man who must make way …

Liverpool FC | Players Goals & Assists so far | All Competitions

As a preview to Liverpool's first Cup Final for almost six years we thought we'd get together some stats on the Carling Cup regarding the goal scorers and players that have the most assist. However as we were compiling the data we though we'd add in the FA Cup and Premier League stats to give you a full breakdown of how the team are doing before the Cup Final and where we can improve. As you can see below Liverpool …

Liverpool | It's All About Shooting | Statistical & Graphical Review

Much has been made this season about our lack of goals and our poor conversion rate. In fact, we have been consistently in the bottom three all season when it comes to conversion rates, hovering in and around the 10% mark. This week however, we’ve reached a new low and are now bottom of that table with only an 8.5% conversion rate. When you consider our rivals for the Champion’s League places, Arsenal (15%), Chelsea (13) and Newcastle (16% - …

Liverpool Striking Options | Who’s going to fill the onion bag?

    [caption id="attachment_5177" align="aligncenter" width="284" caption="Who will be hitting the back of the net for the Reds?"][/caption] A poacher, a Rush, an Aldridge, dare I say it an on form, happy Torres. We must’ve all wished for one this season. Suarez is a genius but needs to up his conversion rate (currently 7%) and quickly, when he returns. We need someone to convert our chances. The table shows we are in 6th position. If you rank us by number …
Liverpool - Mid-Term Statistical Report

Liverpool - Mid-Term Statistical Report

With the season just over half way gone I thought I’d take a look at Liverpool’s season team stats, see how they compare to other teams at this stage in the Premiership and also take a little look at how those statistics compare to some of last year’s totals. All though this will be a Liverpool based article, from a statistical point of view it’s interesting to note how all teams are doing in the Premier League at this stage. …

Liverpool FC Vs Oldham Athletic | Stats Analysis

So for the first time we're going to be covering an FA Cup match on AnfieldIndex.com. Also for the first time we're not going to be using Opta stats as we don't have access to any Opta stats for FA Cup matches. So in the desperation of trying to get some sort of stats for you I thought we'd use Peforma Sports' new iPad app! [caption id="attachment_5011" align="alignleft" width="150" caption="Performa Sports"][/caption] We got our hands on this app via Performa …
Torres vs Suarez (or why can't we have both?)

Torres vs Suarez (or why can't we have both?)

Recently there have been rumours  surrounding Fernando Torres and a potential move back to Liverpool, almost a year after he went to Chelsea for £50 million. The consensus from most Liverpool fans is that there’s no chance we will take him back. But hang on a second. Is there really a huge difference between Torres and Liverpool’s star man, Luis Suarez, this season? And would linking up with Suarez not potentially bring back the Torres we used to know and love? So far this …

Goals From Midfield Crucial To Success | Liverpool FC Opta Stats

For years under Rafa Benitez and Roy Hodgson Liverpool were accused of being a one-man, and later two-man, team as the goals of Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres helped the Reds to continue to compete at the top table with only Dirk Kuyt and briefly Yossi Benayoun helping to break their monopoly on the team’s goals. The arrival of Kenny Dalglish as manager, the purchases of Andy Carroll and Luis Suarez, the sale of Fernando Torres and a long-term injury …
