Liverpool broke two important records as Jurgen Klopp’s side moved within two points of league leaders Chelsea with a 4-0 win over Southampton on Saturday.
The Reds have now scored a league-topping 39 goals – their highest ever goal total in this stage of a top flight campaign – and became only the second English top flight club until score two of more goals in 17 consecutive games in all competitions.
Sunderland scored two of more goals for 17 consecutive games in 1927.
But the impressive returns extend over a raft of attacking stats, recording league-High grades for expected goals, shots, shots on goal, assists, expected assists and created chances.
The team shape

The visualizations reveal all the attempts of defenders and midfielders passes in almost equal size, usually working ball out to the wide channels – with 41 percent of to attack building down the right flank.
That right-sided threat can also being seen in the help card below, with a high frequency of longer passes fired from that favorite channel, while the Reds have only notched one lonely help from a left-sided pass in the box to date.
Goals in abundance
Mohamed Salah has clearly played a crucial role role in the recent goal records, score a league-high 11 goals and notches a league-high eight assists – culminating in, you guessed it, a league-high 19 goal involvement.
that total for league involvement is just one shy of doubling its closest rivals: Jamie Vardy and Emmanuel Dennis. Salah has indeed been involved in 25 goals in all competitions – more then double Which of any other Premier League player.
Salah headlines the devastating attack, but is far from the only source. Three other Liverpool players rank joint-fifth in the premier league with eight goal involvement: Sadio Mane, Diogo Jota and Trent Alexander-Arnold.
Purely looking at goals, the formidable options of Salah, Mane, Jota and Roberto Firmino all produce sensational returns per 90.
Firmino’s game time has been shortened to just 369 league minutes, largely due to injuries and the emergence of Jota – but the Brazilian actually has the best goal ratio at the club this term with 0.98 per 90 after his hat-trick against Watford.
In terms of the creators, as mentioned before, Salah also top of the assist chart, but right-back Alexander-Arnold is one shy of the Egypt international and lead the way for created chances and assists per 90.

Salah’s positioning and moves are slightly different from the rest of the three-man cast in from Liverpool attack, with a concentrated area of touches down the right sideline, within the opposition half.
The Opportunities Created Card below shows how die hot spot of activity above is also the Egyptians prime area for opportunities to carve for team-mates, as he drives into the box and the usual cutbacks yield almost everything of his shots.
Unlike Salah’s heat card, Mane and Jota venture far in the field more often, with the latter has a higher proportion of touches in the opposition box – while Firmino plays deeper in are unorthodox false-nine role.
Interestingly, Mane and Jota are locked on only eight goals each also fire efforts from similar areas. However, the map below supports the heat cards above – suggests Jota pops up to convert in the six-yard box more often.
Full-backs and Hendo analysed
Of course Alexander-Arnold supports Salah down from Liverpool deadly right channel and has the seven assists of . matched last season already – on of course to break his season-best of 13 assists set in 2019/20.
The card below shows each pass leading to a shot made against the 23-year-old and counterpart full-back Andrew Robertson, die the overwhelming skew reveals of threat comes down the right channel – albeit from Robertson playing 176 minutes less.
Finally, it would be unfair to leave Jordan Henderson out of the creative fold, met also two notches league assists this season and standings behind only Alexander-Arnold and Salaho for opportunities created.
Again, the Liverpool captain usually starts on the right side of a three man midfield, with the majority of to be passes also occurring just within the opposition half, down die right flank, while also moving to central areas in both halves to swipe up and penetrate.
