Liverpool’s ability to maul teams under Jurgen Klopp has been one of the positive points in our successful season.
The Reds beat Bournemouth 3-0 at Anfield on Saturday with the front three of Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino all finding the back of the net.
As per Liverpoolfc.com, Firmino’s goal against Bournemouth was the club’s 300th goal scored under Klopp’s 148-game period.
If the Liverpool attackers have dazzled this season, our defence has been impressive too. By beating the Cherries 3-0, the Reds kept their 15th clean sheet in the Premier League this season. Only Manchester United have kept more clean sheets than Liverpool this campaign.
Much has been spoken about Liverpool’s high-octane style of play under Klopp and the ability to batter teams at will. Mohamed Salah’s name instantly appears on the lips as he has taken the club’s attacking style of play to a different level this season.
The Egyptian’s goal against Bournemouth was his 40th of the campaign across all competitions. As per Liverpool.fc.com, Salah has reached that tally quicker than any other player in the history of our club, taking just 45 games to reach the milestone, beating George Allan’s record of 40 goals in 49 appearances.
The jet-heeled winger’s 30 goals in the league make him a hot favourite to win the Golden Boot award this season. He also leads the race for the European Golden Shoe, ahead of Barcelona star Lionel Messi.
If Salah has been phenomenal, Mane has been devastating of late as he became the highest-scoring Senegalese player in the Premier League following his goal at Bournemouth.
The former Southampton man netted his 44th goal in the English top-flight to overtake former West Ham United and Newcastle striker Demba Ba.
Generally, games are won in the midfield and Liverpool’s midfielders have performed very well this season. The likes of Jordan Henderson, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, James Milner and Gini Wijnaldum have worked well in tandem throughout the season.
On Saturday against Bournemouth, Wijnaldum started in the three-man midfield alongside Henderson and Oxlade-Chamberlain, completing 100% of his 42 passes.
According to our club’s official website, the Dutchman is only the fourth midfielder to have a 100% passing accuracy in a Premier League game this season, joining the likes of Arsenal’s Mohamed Elneny, Tottenham’s Mousa Dembele and Swansea’s Ki-Sung-Yeung.
Liverpool’s incredible statistics following the win over Bournemouth has stunned our fans. Here is how they reacted on Twitter.
