      Cleanest team

      "The latest research from CIES Football Observatory shows the Reds have committed the fewest fouls per game across the Premier League.

      Klopp’s side are averaging just 8.14 fouls every 90 minutes, a massive 22 per cent less than the top-flight average.

      Even more impressively, these statistics put Liverpool top across the 35 biggest European leagues – making them the fairest team on the continent."

      Makes good reading. Doing it the Liverpool way.

      Wonder what happens to that number if we take away the Man City game where we definitely implemented a few tactical fouls.

      Commited 10 fouls on that game, only 2 above the average.

      What makes that impressive to me is we must be among the league leaders, perhaps far and away, in forcing other teams to relinquish possession. I remember reading an article early in Klopp's tenure about the attention given in training to certain tackling techniques for winning the ball back without fouling (one in particular involved overtaking a player from behind and Bobby, Lallana and Emre Can were especially good at it). Of course this is also speaks to our methods of pressing, something we've all gotten somewhat accustomed to if we're paying attention - not just an all-out rush but a pattern of shutting off space and options.

      I suppose with that in mind we end up intercepting passes more than winning the ball in tackles, but I still think given our intensity  when we don't have the ball, the foul statistic is pretty remarkable.

      We don't have Candy doing our shirts no more, so must be all the Nivea the lads are using...

      Bit surprised at that actually, you don't get to be first in the table without a bit of 'grit and determination' about ye, as old Hansen used to say, and we well hold our own in the physical battles.

      Something else for the City lot to lose their heads over.

      Sure they'll spin this as favourable treatment from the referees

      Hahaha one knobhead has started a #AntiVARSociety hashtag on twitter cos of course it's been brought in to help us win the league so that can go with the other hashtag of #TaintedTitle and The Ev's shouts of the league not being good enough.

      Liverpool FC - F***ing unbearable and making heads melt!!

      Love that shout of the league being poor quality - Leicester won the title 2 weeks early on 77 points a few years ago, nobody mentioned how sh*te the league was then!
