After Liverpool scored their opening goal against Crystal Palace, the commentary team rattled out the latest statistical update on Liverpool’s unbeaten run when leading at half-time (or so I presume, as the match was not televised on U.K. television).

It means Liverpool can take on less risk, because if the game stays the same, Liverpool win.

It’s an interesting statistic and understanding why Liverpool are so good at defending a lead or extending one is interesting too, as it fundamentally underpins so much of Liverpool's game-to-game tactics and wider strategy for game management.

When Liverpool take the lead they take the game state advantage.

For those that are not aware, the Reds are unbeaten in their last 94 matches in which they have led at half-time, winning 84 of those (89 per cent).

This season, with the Reds being back to their prolific best from set-pieces, Jürgen Klopp will be aiming for more of the same.

In Liverpool's title-winning 2019/20 campaign, early goals — usually from set-pieces — were the key to Liverpool being able to cruise through games in a brutally efficient manner by taking the game state advantage.
