The first month of Liverpool’s 2018-19 season has passed, and it was a pretty perfect start for the Reds. As we head into September, let’s look back at some important numbers from Liverpool’s first three games.

  • The number of goals scored by Liverpool in August.
  • The number of consecutive clean sheets Liverpool have kept at Anfield in the league. The last time they conceded a goal at home in the league was February 24th, 2018 in a 4-1 victory against West Ham. The last time they lost at home was April 23, 2017 against Crystal Palace.

  • The number of different Liverpool goal scorers. Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mané, James Milner, and Daniel Sturridge all contributed to the team’s goal tally in August.
  • The number of Liverpool players with assists. Roberto Firmino leads the team with two assists, while Salah, Milner, and Andy Robertson each notched one a piece.

  • The number of games played and the number of consecutive victories and clean sheets the team has earned.
  • The number of goals scored by leader Sadio Mané, who bagged a brace in the opener against West Ham and then one more against Crystal Palace for good measure.
  • The number of yellow cards received by Trent Alexander-Arnold. The young fullback has continued to impress in Jürgen Klopp’s back line, but his discipline record may cause him to miss some matches sooner rather than later. He’s been hit with a yellow card in all three of Liverpool’s matches so far.

  • The number of penalties Liverpool were awarded and converted, thanks to James Milner. In the whole of the 2017-18 season, the Reds only received three penalty decisions in their favor in the league and scored two of them.
  • The number of different starting XIs chosen by Klopp. The manager has become Mr. Consistent this season, opting to keep the same 11 players on the pitch for each of the first three games of the season.
  • Liverpool’s position on the table by the end of the month. And long may it continue.
