Comebacks & clean sheets – Liverpool’s remarkable Premier League season in numbers

Liverpool were a relentless force in the Premier League once more and while they fell agonisingly short in the title race, it was a remarkable season nonetheless.

Jurgen Klopp‘s side knows each and every season battling it out with Man City is defined by perfection, with the bar having been set extremely high for years now.

The final tally would not end up in Liverpool’s favour, but there can be no denying this was another campaign to be proud of for the Reds with another 90+ point campaign to their name.

It stings but the Reds are a special side and we are lucky to be able to bear witness to their incredible feats.

With another league season having come to a close, here is the Reds’ season in numbers.
