Liverpool cruised to a brilliant 4-0 win over Arsenal at Anfield on Sunday afternoon, and the statistics from the game reflected fondly on the Reds.
It was a magnificent performance from Jurgen Klopp‘s side, who blew away their opponents with wave after wave of attacking football.
Here are five eye-catching statistics to have emerged from the game.
Big-game Gini shines
Gini Wijnaldum has been accused of going missing in certain matches, but he invariably comes to the fore when Liverpool take on a rival.
He didn’t score on Sunday, as was the case at home to the Gunners last season, but he completed eight take-ons – the most he’s managed in a Premier League game for the Reds – in what was a superb performance.
Klopp’s Reds making new records
Last season, not a single league game saw one team have six or more clear-cut chances than their opponents, but Sunday bucked that trend.
According to Andrew Beasley, Liverpool had six Opta-defined clear-cut chances to Arsenal‘s none, outlining just how dominant they were.
Mane joins elite company
Mane again showed that he is the Reds’ most important player on Sunday, scoring a superb strike and generally causing Arsenal all sorts of trouble.
Liverpool’s defence has taken endless criticism of late, but has some of the vitriol been a little too harsh?
Sunday saw Klopp’s men keep a fourth league clean-sheet in a row at home for the first time since August 2013, and a first against Arsenal at Anfield since 2006.
Klopp’s superb record vs. rivals continues
Since taking charge of Liverpool in October 2015, Klopp has ensured his side have a magnificent record against their top-six rivals, and Everton.
The weekend thrashing of Arsenal was the German’s 28th match against those six clubs, and his statistics now read: won 16, drawn 11, lost one. Sensational.
