Peter Crouch stunned at Liverpool stats revealed during Champions League win


Peter Crouch admits surprise at Liverpool's defensive stats so far this season during half time of the Champions League win against Genk

Jurgen Klopp's men have now kept just one clean sheet in their last nine matches in all competitions. No team had conceded fewer goals than Liverpool in the Premier League last season - and so far this term only Leicester, with eight, have let in fewer goals than Liverpool’s nine.

A stat which has described that the Anfield club are still struggling to shut out their opposition completely.

Georginio Wijnaldum scored a 14min opener from the six-yard box to put Liverpool ahead in the Champions League clash at home to Genk on Tuesday.

But they were unable to hold on to the lead before the end of the first half as Mbwana Samata equalised for the visitors from a set piece.

And when Crouch read through Liverpool's clean sheets statistics at half time, he revealed his surprise.

"Yeah it's bizarre, it really is," the Anfield striker said on BT Sport.

"I just felt they weren't getting out of second gear. I genuinely thought they had much more in them in the first half.

"But when you're 1-0 up it's always a case that they can score.

"It was [Genk's] first shot on target and they’ve got a real game on their hands now."

"You look down there at Mane, [Adam] Lallana and Firmino - they’ve still got a few options to go."
