The Reds have managed to secure 13 points out the first 15 available in the early stages of the season.
This is impressive considering Liverpool have already faced Chelsea and Newcastle away from home.
Additionally, Jurgen Klopp’s men have had to play two games with 10 men.
Alexis Mac Allister was dismissed against Bournemouth at Anfield, while skipper Virgil van Dijk was unceremoniously sent off against Newcastle at St James’ Park.
This makes the point tally even more impressive – with the Reds only two points behind league leaders Manchester City.
An interesting statistic has emerged in the aftermath of this weekend’s matches.
Liverpool have the 6th highest XG [expected goals] in Europe and the 4th highest XG in the Premier League despite playing over 90 minutes of the season with 10 men.
Jurgen Klopp’s men have managed to keep an attacking threat while being down to 10 men against quality opponents such as Newcastle United.
This has also alludes to the creativity that has been injected into this Liverpool side.
Trent Alexander-Arnold is now not the only creative outlet, with Dominik Szoboszlai and Alexis Mac Allister now able to supplement the vice-captain’s duties.
It will be exciting to see how Liverpool perform over the coming weeks and months as the squad is still gelling with many new arrivals.
The team is bound to improve as relationships start to develop around the pitch and understanding grows.
