It’s fairly rare to see the Reds score from so far out these days.

Thiago Alcântara’s spectacular strike which opened the scoring in Liverpool’s 2-0 victory over Porto will live long in the memory.

It was the longest-range goal seen at Anfield since Fabinho lashed home a rocket from similar distance at the same end in 2020, when the Reds beat Crystal Palace 4-0.

The defenders scored six fewer — not that Liverpool had any senior centre-backs most of the time — but the main shortfall came from the midfield, which dropped 14 goals.

Tactical choice or not, it’s not going to get the likes of Ilkay Gündogan — who, on his own, scored twice as many league goals from midfield as Liverpool did — quaking in his boots, is it?

History suggests if they can maintain their relatively hot early season form, though, even if it requires long-range strikes, then it might make all the difference in terms of the league title.

Indeed, when it comes to the average distance from which Premier League teams take their shots this season, only Brentford, with their direct style, have a lower figure than Liverpool (per FBRef).
