Liverpool picked up a creditable 1-1 draw at Old Trafford on Sunday and despite conceding a late goal, it may well prove to be a very good point for them.
The Reds are still well poised to have a fantastic second half of the season and if they can go on an extended winning run, have every chance of not just securing Champions League qualification but also chasing down Chelsea, who currently sit seven points ahead.
Key to Liverpool’s success this season has been their ability to score goals. Klopp’s side have scored a massive 49 goals in the Premier League this season, more than any other team.
While Chelsea have Costa, Spurs have Kane and United have Ibrahimovic, what’s most impressive about Liverpool’s haul is their ability to find goals from all over the pitch, as this stat from Squawka shows.
The Reds have more players who have scored five Premier League goals or more this season than any other side.

Sadio Mane, Adam Lallana, James Milner, Roberto Firmino and Philippe Coutinho are the players with 5 or more league goals this season, highlighting just what a team effort it’s been to get Liverpool where they are this campaign.
That team effort should stand them well in the second half of the season, less fearful of a key player dropping form or an injury taking its toll on goalscoring prowess.
