For the first time in 2017, Liverpool put in the kind of performance that made us so brilliant to watch before Christmas, against Spurs on Saturday evening.
We beat our top four rivals 2-0, thanks to a brace from Sadio Mane, in what was actually our first Premier League win since the turn of the calendar year.
The fact we performed so brilliantly when we’ve been so horrendous in recent matches summed up Liverpool’s inconsistency and the fact we like playing against good sides who try to play against us instead of ‘parking the bus’.
Following the Anfield win, it turns out that in the top flight this term, we’ve now racked up 26 points against the top 10 and just 23 against the bottom ten.
Every other side in the country has more points in matches against the bottom ten – showing that if we work out how to break down deep defensive sides more often, we’ll be a mighty force under Jurgen Klopp.
We face Arsenal, Manchester City and Everton in our next five, which would usually fill us with anxiety – but it really shouldn’t – as this stat suggests!
