3 mind-blowing stats from Liverpool's Premier League season so far

3 mind-blowing stats from Liverpool's Premier League season so far

Some of his passing was uncharacteristically sloppy, but overall, another good performance from a player who seems to have nailed down that No. 6 role. And I heard that he was a little bit ill before the game.

Naby Keita scored his first Premier League goal in a 3-1 victory at Southampton last week as the Guinea global made his first start in the top flight since February.

Just five minutes later and it was two though, with skipper Jordan Henderson the architect of a brilliantly simple team goal. They will try to be more motivated.

The fine balance Liverpool must strike in maintaining their quest for European glory alongside ending a long wait for a top-flight title was in evidence as Klopp withdrew Mane and Firmino in the final quarter with one eye on Sunday's league visit of Chelsea. Progress has been slower than anticipated, but the evidence of the past week is encouraging indeed for Liverpudlians.

Depay had a disappointing reign at Old Trafford after joining the Red Devils on a four-year contract valued around £25 million. There was the positional play - only Alexander-Arnold and Fabinho regained possession more often.

And when he had it, the confidence flowed.

It was always going to be a challenge for Pep Guardiola to outfox and Manchester City to outplay Mauricio Pochettino and Tottenham Hotspur three times in just under two weeks. "Here he was there from the start". The first was fortunate, with Keita's shot from the edge of the box deflecting off Oliver Torres and looping past Iker Casillas. "We've not used him there for 3.5 years - sorry about that!" grinned Klopp.

Midfield has been the area of most contention and rotation throughout the season, and this evening is no different.

Andujar was runner-up for the 2018 AL Rookie of the Year award after batting.297 with 27 homers and 92 RBI in 149 games. While the team has to compete in a tough American League East, it helps that most of the American League is rebuilding.

Marega then came close for a third time in the match in the 69th minute but Alisson got down smartly to save.

How are Liverpool looking in the PL and CL?

Henderson, who had helped turn the game off the bench at Southampton, was equally influential from the start against Porto.

Los Blancos have not hidden their interest in the Senegal global, who has been on fire for the Reds in all competitions this season.

On a night when former Bundesliga players scored all the goals in the two Champions League games, Roberto Firmino stroked home a second for Liverpool at the end of a slick passing move that has become customary for Liverpool.

How refreshing to see Henderson playing with such confidence.

DF Trent Alexander-Arnold, 7 - Looked uncertain in the opening stages when Porto had some joy getting in behind him, but more than made up for that going forward and put the second goal on a plate for Firmino with a flawless low cross. He doesn't get universal appreciation, but nobody would doubt his contribution here.
