Liverpool’s explosive rise to form has this season been backed up by statistics showing us as the team to have created the most chances and to have scored the joint most goals in the Premier League.
According to Squawka, Jurgen Klopp’s men have created 111 chances so far this season, including 99 key passes and 12 assists.

Liverpool’s attacking prowess won’t come as a surprise to many fans given the quality Jurgen Klopp has at his disposal when it comes to forwards.
The statistics do, however, recognise how big a threat we are to the rest of the league and how good a chance this group of players has of enjoying a successful year, providing they don’t drop off.
Klopp has implemented a very obvious, intense attacking style of play for all to see. It just comes down to who can stop it.
If this team can continue this form and earn a clean-sheet every once in a while, then we could be onto something.
Let’s enjoy all these goals for now, though.
