Goals keeping coming and so do the wins
After another thrilling game yesterday, Liverpool FC go marching on into November joint top of the Premier League points wise, with both Arsenal and Manchester City. The Mancs sit on top and we’re third, but all of us are on 23 points and separated only by goal difference. I reckon our average goals scored per game this season is currently up to, or just about three now as we keep outscoring the opposition.
We have now scored two goals or more in seven of our ten Premier League games so far, and on four of those occasions we have scored four or more as well. Goals are flying in from everyone and our attacking midfielders have just been simply brilliant.
Goals yesterday from Emre Can, Dejan Lovren, Joel Matip and Roberto Firmino made it our fifth win in our last six league games. Yes we’re conceding goals as well and that needs to be sorted as soon as, but as long as we’re scoring then we’re a threat to anyone. The signing of Mane as an individual player was a no brainer, however what I wasn’t expecting was how much it would allow more freedom for other players. Lallana, Firmino and Coutinho seem to be getting better each game with the more they play with each other, Coutinho in particular. His two assists yesterday showed off his quality and for me he is currently the in-form player in the league.
If we can put away Watford next weekend at Anfield before the International break, then the players will go away with their countries full of confidence knowing they’ll be coming back to a team challenging for top spot. We then have a tricky away tie at Southampton before playing an awful Sunderland at home which means going into December we should be still right up there. Plus into a Sem-Final if we can put at hatful past Leeds United in the EFL Cup.
We’ll just have to wait and see. Also though, just for reference, please see all of our December fixtures below which have now been arranged for the television schedule. All but one of ours games are live on either BT Sport or Sky Sports!
