What if the Premier League was decided plainly on goals scored by English players? Well, Liverpool would be on the verge of Premier League glory.
Manchester City would be preparing for life in the Championship David Moyes’ Manchester United would be sitting pretty in third.
And of the 11 players who played against Denmark last night, five were from Liverpool, while the only goal of the game came from Daniel Sturridge, who of course, is a Liverpool player. The form of Liverpool’s English players supports this analysis and shows why they top this table.
