ANALYST

#3 Liverpool | 20 goals conceded 

Liverpool will be hoping to wrap the Premier League up as soon as possible.
Liverpool will be hoping to wrap the Premier League up as soon as possible.

Liverpool have previously been forced to rely upon their deadly attack to win games, but this season the defence has really stepped up and, at times, carried them towards success. The back four of Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, Andy Robertson, and Trent Alexander-Arnold have formed a formidable partnership, conceding merely 20 goals so far this season.

And even when an injury occurs, players such as Joel Matip have stepped up and filled in without disrupting the balance of the team, a team that sits 22 points clear at the top of the Premier League. 

Jurgen Klopp's side have become the most efficient in the league and have picked up the ability to win ugly as well as in style. In fact, the Reds have won by the scoreline of 1-0 on 3 occasions in the Premier League this season and have scored 3 goals or more on just 8 occasions which highlights how often they have had to see a game out using their defensive awareness whilst sitting on a tight scoreline.
