West Brom 1 Liverpool 1 | Review and Match Stats

West Brom took points off yet another top of the table rival as Liverpool were held to a lacklustre 1-1 draw at the Hawthorns. The visitors went ahead midway into the first half through Daniel Sturridge only for veteran defender Kolo Touré to gift an equaliser to West Brom via a powerful Victor Anichebe finish. It was a sour finish to a week which promised so much after the Merseyside derby win over Everton followed by the pursuit of talented …
Is it time to re-open the case for the defence?

Is it time to re-open the case for the defence?

Editors Note: This article was written before the thumping of Everton and does not include numbers from that game. Back in September I wrote a piece about Liverpool’s defence and how we were blessed with some excellent defenders. How were were able to almost mix and match our defenders if required and how, even with an injury crisis we should be able to cope extremely well. I wrote that Glen Johnson, Kolo Toure, Daniel Agger and Jose Enrique were, back …

Joe Allen | One for the future, as well as right now

Wednesday 4th December 2013 was a great night for Liverpool Football Club and in particular for Luis Suarez. Four wonderful goals from the Uruguayan wizard and a very solid and professional job done by the whole team. Quite rightly, Luis Suarez went home with the Man of the Match award and all the plaudits. However, that match was equally as important for another Liverpool player. It was the match in which Joe Allen showed everyone that he is ready to …
Liverpool's left back issue: Is he the Taylor-Made solution?

Liverpool's left back issue: Is he the Taylor-Made solution?

Anyone who has watched Liverpool for the past two seasons would agree that Liverpool need a new first choice left back. In fact, if you go back the last 10 years you could put forward an argument that Liverpool’s last top class left back was actually a right back, that player would be Alvaro Arbeloa. If you pushed me even more I would say that him and Glen Johnson are the best left backs Liverpool have had since the day’s …
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 …

The Importance of Being Lucas | Opta Stats Analysis

It may surprise you to hear this, but with Liverpool FC having played 33 games this season, with only 5 games remaining, Lucas Leiva is still Liverpool’s top tackler. With a total of 68 tackles attempted this season, out of only 12 games the Brazilian has featured in, only now has any other LFC player threatened that statistic. With Jose Enrique having attempted 65 tackles to date, it looks like Lucas’s tackle stat is finally about to be surpassed. But …
