Analysing Anfield: Ageless James Milner, Reds firepower to blow rivals away & beware Brighton and their underlying numbers
Liverpool's performance against Leicester in the Premier League was almost perfect - and the numbers show it. Join Josh Williams and David Hughes as they talk through and analyse that game, plus look ahead to the Champions League clash with Atalanta - a team that Liverpool tore apart just three weeks ago. Liverpool smashed five past the Italian outfit last time out, and their attack so far this season is proving to be the difference in getting them over the line in matches. As the numbers show, the addition of Diogo Jota, plus existing forwards like Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah, are helping the Reds generate the most chances in the Premier League, and statistically of the highest quality. As Liverpool push forward to retain their league title and head into the latter stages of the Champions League, their stellar front line could be crucial, as the Analysing Anfield hosts explain.
