Pinpointing the problem: Liverpool’s 1-2 defeat to Wigan in stats

Liverpool’s 2-1 defeat at the hands of Wigan on Saturday afternoon left players, coaching staff and fans further frustrated by a seemingly endless run of bad form for the Reds.

It’s now five defeats in the last six league games for Kenny Dalglish‘s men and, despite a Carling Cup already in the bag and a forthcoming FA Cup semi-final, it is simply not good enough for many.

But where does it all go wrong? The Reds seem to be keeping shape and have a fantastic pass completion record of 82%, but shots and play in the final third seem to be causing the misfiring and lack of goals that has plagued Liverpool all season.
