10 stats that show how incredible Liverpool have been this season
Premier League never ceases to amaze its viewers. Over the years, the Premier League has given us plenty of moments to savour and this season has been no different. A mouthwatering clash between Arsenal and Liverpool on opening weekend set the tone for the season.
From the offset, the season had all the ingredients to be one of the most epic title races of all time, after all, where else but the Premier League would you see so many world class managers lock horns?
Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool are currently top of the Premier League table after 11 games with 26 points and they have deserved to be on top with some scintillating football. The Reds have been a nightmare to play against and many of the opposition managers including the likes of Arsene Wenger, Mauricio Pochettino, Claudio Ranieri, Mike Phelan, Alan Pardew, Tony Pulis, Francesco Guidolin and Walter Mazzarri have heaped praise on Liverpool’s performance.
These 10 mind-blowing statistics about Liverpool’s season so far will explain how dominating the Reds have been this season.
#10 Liverpool have the most goals (30), most passes (6,587), most forward passes (4,112), most chances created (170) and most shot per game (7.8) in the Premier League
Liverpool are not just top of the Premier League table, they top the league in many other tables as well. The Reds have scored 30 goals this season which is 4 more than any other team in the league.
What is incredible is that despite scoring 30 goals, none of Liverpool’s recognised strikers, that is, Daniel Sturridge, Divock Origi and Danny Ings, have scored a league goal this season.
The 30 goals scored by Liverpool shouldn’t come as a surprise as they have a league-high 170 chances created. Manchester City are second in this table with 151 chances created.
Jurgen Klopp’s men have also played the most passes in the league with 6,597 passes which puts them ahead of Manchester City with 6,545 passes. Of Liverpool’s total passes, 4,112 are forward passes of which they have made 127 passes more than second-placed Arsenal.
Finally, Liverpool’s 7.8 shots on target per game is not just the best in the Premier League, but it is also the best by any team in Europe’s big five leagues.
