The worrying goalscoring stats behind Liverpool’s awful form


Liverpool are in the middle of one of the worst seasons in their Premier League history, currently sitting 10th in the Premier League table.

Many people have pointed towards the awful performances of the defence and midfield as the reason behind the Reds’ awful form- and they would be right.

However, it can’t go unnoticed how poor Liverpool’s attacking play has been this season.

If you were to take out the 9-0 demolition of Bournemouth at Anfield in August, the Reds would have only scored 25 goals in 20 games in the league.

That would be less than the likes of Aston Villa, Leicester, Brentford and even Leeds United- who are sat 17th in the table.

Individually, Liverpool’s forwards have looked lost since the World Cup with Mohamed Salah and Darwin Nunez looking more frustrating in every game.

In fact, Liverpool’s top goalscorer since the World Cup in the Premier League is Leicester City defender, Wout Faes, who scored two own goals against the Reds in December.

Since the start of 2023, Jurgen Klopp’s side have only managed to score one goal in four games which was Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s header against Brentford.

Goals have been hard to find, with Salah on just seven goals in the Premier League and Nunez on just five.

The return of Diogo Jota, Roberto Firmino and Luis Diaz couldn’t come quick enough, especially if the Reds want any sort of chance of catching up to the top four.
