In the preview of one of the most eagerly awaited matches in the Premier League, we have collaborated with The Sunday Times in their analysis of Liverpool.

On this occasion, our models were part of the article prepared by Jonathan Northcroft, which analyzes the fundamental changes that Liverpool had between the previous season and the current one, the most notorious being the absence of Virgil Van Dijk. The Dutchman’s defensive superiority compared to the team’s other defenders is one of the main reasons why Liverpool changed so much from one year to the next.

The article, supported by our data, reflects Van Dijk’s ability to provide successful passes that bring the team closer to the opposing area. This can be seen especially if we compare it with the passes of the defenders that currently cover the gap left by the former Groningen player.
