THE STATS DO SOMETIMES LIE

Friends Of Liverpool

Despite a very depressing defeat at St. James Park on Saturday, there are some positives which I am trying to take from the game, hard as that is.

Liverpool Stats:
5 shots on target
12 shots off target
55% possession
27 crosses
3 offsides
5 corners
With statistics like those, you would expect to win most games that you play, but it was not to be, largely due to poor defending by Liverpool’s back four.
Yes it felt like a wretched defeat and is still very hard to take as we had a great chance to move up the table again.
But we just have to take it on the chin and move onto the Fulham game next Saturday, when we will have our Captain Stevie G back.
