Comparing the Premier League stats of Liverpool’s forwards in 2020-21 – PF

It would be an understatement to say that the 2020-21 season for Liverpool has been an enormous disappointment, with a Champions League place next season now hanging in the balance. 

A 1-0 defeat to Chelsea on Thursday night left them in seventh place and four points behind the Blues, who snuck into the top four with the win.

While they may point to the likes of Virgil van Dijk, Naby Keita, Joel Matip and Jordan Henderson each missing large portions of the season, the performances of Liverpool’s attackers have also been underwhelming at times.

Mo Salah may still be present in the race for the Golden Boot, but the trademark synergy and brutality of his link-up play with Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino has vanished.

Diogo Jota looked like he could be able to take them to another level in the early weeks of the season, but his own injury problems have hampered those ambitions.

We’ve compared the stats of Liverpool’s main five attackers and get a closer look at who has not been up to scratch…
