It’s no secret that Liverpool are having one of their best seasons in years. Jurgen Klopp has the Reds playing some scintillating, attacking football that is pleasing not just those at Anfield but neutrals too.
Klopp’s side picked up another impressive victory on Tuesday night, thrashing Stoke 4-1 at Anfield after initially going behind in the first half.
This Liverpool side are undeniable in full flight and it was thrilling to see them dismantle a Stoke side that must have fancied their chances when Jon Walters put them ahead.
Just how impactful has Jurgen Klopp been on the Premier League as a whole though? Are Liverpool outperforming other sides in the same time period?
This stat from Squawka would certainly suggest so. No side has scored more goals, created more chances or won more tackles than the German’s Liverpool side. It highlights just how exciting and combative the Reds are right now.
And historically? How is this attacking threat matching up to Liverpool teams from the past? Well Opta pitched in with a stat of their own that shows Klopp’s side have scored more goals in 2016, 86, than any other Liverpool side since 1985.
That too is an incredible statistic. The future is most certainly looking bright at Anfield…
