The effectiveness has also lessened from an attacking standpoint, though, rendering Jurgen Klopp’s ‘favourite playmaker’ far less potent.

Opta have a metric called high turnovers, which is when a team wins the ball to start a possession sequence within 40m of the opposition goal.

In the 2020/21 Premier League, the Reds generated 67 shots from them, 1.76 per game and the second most in the division.

They then rose to the stop of the standings last season with 1.87 per match, yet prior to their 0-0 draw with Chelsea, Liverpool had recorded 18 in their 18 matches in 2022/23, one of the lowest totals in the top flight.

In terms of total high turnovers, the Reds didn’t deliver a wildly more effective performance.

Against their season long average of 9.4 per game, Liverpool won possession 12 times in the final 40m on Saturday.

Having averaged 3.05 shots per 90 minutes in Dutch league football, Gakpo then had essentially that many from high turnovers alone in just his fourth start for the Reds.

Only one of their high turnovers has resulted in a goal this season when Brentford, Manchester City and Tottenham have all had five (with the former scoring against the Reds in this fashion).
