Liverpool’s run of 11 games without a clean-sheet is the club’s longest in over 20 years!
According to Dom King of the Mail, we haven’t failed to keep a shutout in as many consecutive matches since 1998.
Some things for Jürgen Klopp to consider.
• Liverpool have now gone 11 games without keeping a clean sheet, the worst run since 1998.
• Nine visiting teams have been to Anfield this season – each one has scored 🔴

Crucially, of course, the club has won nine of these matches and drawn two – against Manchester United and Napoli – so despite the poor defensive record the overall run has still been outstanding.
In the Premier League, we’ve actually conceded the second fewest goals, just behind Leicester City – so although we have an irritating habit of letting one in – that’s usually all it is – one.
Of course, it would be nice to start taking the lead in a few more matches rather than having to come from behind – as it would enable Jurgen Klopp to save his players’ legs.
We played superbly v Manchester City when we got a good early start – as we could control the game’s tempo – and that’s something we should be aiming to do far more over December.
