Liverpool have tremendously disappointed the Anfield faithful this season, as they miserably started life without goalscoring talisman Luis Suarez to lead the line.
The excellent form of Daniel Sturridge last term, combined with new summer signings Mario Balotelli, Adam Lallana, Dejan Lovren, Rickie Lambert, Emre Can, Lazar Markovic and Alberto Moreno, who have all featured in the first-team this season, was a huge message of intent from manager Brendan Rodgers – but one that has far from paid off.
Liverpool are in with a small chance of pipping fierce rivals Manchester United to a place in the top four, but they will have to rely on other results to do so – in what has been a hugely underachieving campaign for the Merseyside club.
These stats, posted by talkSPORT, show just how poor the Reds have been this term, particularly in front of goal, with their strike-force currently the worst in the Premier League.
