Analysing Anfield: Underlying numbers show Liverpool well-placed in Premier League title race despite West Brom frustration
Tuesday, 29 December
Liverpool were held by West Brom at the weekend as they struggled against a Sam Allardyce side once more at Anfield. Josh Williams and David Hughes explain what went wrong for Jurgen Klopp on this occasion - and what can be done about that in the coming games. They also discuss the general state of the title race, and where Liverpool stand among the contenders at the top. How are Man City shaping up ahead of the second half of the season, and could there be a surprise challenger in the form of Manchester United or Aston Villa? Josh and David conclude with a look ahead to Newcastle United, who Liverpool face on Wednesday night, and Southampton, who the they travel to face next Monday. Ralph Hasenhuttl's side have been flying high this season, but the data suggests Liverpool could have an easier ride than perhaps many expect - especially with Jannik Vestergaard out injured. Enjoy.
