No place for Coutinho, Joe Allen or Lazar Markovic…
Football statistics aggregator WhoScored track players’ performances and contributions in every match, and have released data which reveals the average number of key passes played per game for each player
A key pass is defined as a pass that leads to a goalscoring chance, or a goal.
Here’s the five Liverpool players who’ve created the most goalscoring opportunities this term in the Premier League.
5) Adam Lallana – 1.1 key passes per game
The £26m playmaker scrapes into the top 5 ahead of Daniel Sturridge, Lazar Markovic and Mario Balotelli. His key passes have led to just the one goal, and interestingly, he only completes on average 25.5 passes every match – which is very low.
