Liverpool in another stalemate at home

Tuesday, 2nd December 2008 11:12pm
For the second successive round Liverpool were held at home to a goalless draw and this time by West Ham.

Last week Liverpool were held goalless by Fulham and the other team to go with one point from Anfield after holding Liverpool at bay was Stoke City.

The single point was good enough to see the Anfield outfit top the ladder after Chelsea lost to Arsenal for their second home defeat this season.

Liverpool was not the only team to have successive goalless draws because they were joined by Newcastle, Fulham and Aston Villa who also managed to keep clean sheets for two consecutive weeks but without troubling the opposition as well.

Villa's draw with Fulham meant they lost fourth position to Arsenal who are back on track after trailing at half time at Stamford Bridge but then scoring two quick second half goals.

Maybe at this point we can take a look at the draw scores so far this season.

The table below shows the draw score and the frequency of that score:


ScorelineFrequency
0-015
1-112
2-27
3-30
4-41
5-50


Its not surprising to see that the 0-0 scoreline has now overtaken the 1-1 scoreline which was leading at the end of October.

But there has also been a slight increase in the number of 2-all draws

Looking at the relegation zone, the three teams in there have one thing in common: they have all lost five of their last six matches.

Blackburn and West Bromwich Albion have actually failed to get a win in their last six matches and they plus Hull City are the only three teams to have done so.

Yes Liverpool are top but I think the stay will be temporary. Pool doesn't have the depth and talent that is required to stay top for a long time and look at how they are now firing blanks match after match or sometimes relying on late goals to get points. One player Torres is injured and then there are no goals and Keane is taking his time to adjust and score goals. I think only Chelsea and Man U are the only teams who are going to have a shout on the title.

I think its still too early Earnest to say that Liverpool stay will be temporary. Manchester United and Chelsea will have to win matches but as we saw last week both were also held to goalless draws. I think the picture will get clearer in January.
