LIV 5-0 SWA & Other Emphatic Wins

 

Liverpool's 5-0 victory against Swansea deserves a post of it's own, especially in the absence of any other FPL interest over the weekend.

Enrique stole the crown for top points with a goal, assist and clean sheet, plus full bonus points..  Suarez and Sturridge were next best and despite Suarez outscoring Sturridge by 5 pts it was very close between the two of them again.  Suarez won a perhaps fortunate penalty for his assist. Sturridge was generously handed his penalty by Gerrard, but could have easily scored one or two more from open play.  Couthino's full debut also showed he's one to watch.


Liverpool's victory was emphatic. They had 35 shots in total, the most from any team this season, and this has prompted me to take a look back through this season's results for other dominant performances from a shot data perspective.  As can be seen from the number of goals scored in these games it's still shots on target that is the important stats.  Sure, lots of shots are good, but if they don't hit the target it doesn't count for much.
