Liverpool obliterating Man City & Arsenal in PL statistic as FSG need clearer than ever

Posted by

Liverpool’s 2022/23 campaign perhaps couldn’t be more of a polar opposite to the highs of the prior term in which they came achingly close to making history with a quadruple haul of silverware.

A dramatic final day of league action, then followed by a Champions League final – the latter of which was marred by the horrific treatment of supporters in Paris – ended hopes of a fairytale end to the season.

It’s been less of the same this time around with fans being treated to flashbacks of 2020/21 as the injuries have piled up with the Reds topping the starts chart for games missed through injury (courtesy of a graphic provided by @AurelNz) in stark comparison to the fortunes enjoyed by Manchester City and Arsenal.

Having been able to field a near-full-strength first-XI against Julen Lopetegui’s Wolves in the FA Cup, however, it’s clear that the Merseysiders problems extend well beyond the availability of certain men.

Jurgen Klopp pointed at Liverpool’s inability to win challenges as one such symptom of his side’s ongoing struggles on the pitch – the data available does verify that statement.

There’s generally broad agreement that one signing alone won’t be enough to fix the scale of problems we’re faced with across the park.

But to get back into the top four spots and hold our place there, FSG HAS to provide Liverpool the necessary funds to do some further minor surgery in the January window and acquire some fresh legs for the midfield department.

Otherwise, there’s no telling what kind of impact a lack of premier European football will have on our hopes of rectifying such concerns in the summer.

  1. It amazes me that teams wait until they have gone beyond their peak before considering refreshing their squads. The time to look is when approaching the peak. Looking on the way down is way too late.
