The stats that show Coutinho, Firmino, Lallana & Mane can push Liverpool to top 4

 15 February 2017

With Philippe Coutinho, Roberto Firmino, Adam Lallana and Sadio Mane all back, Liverpool are on course to seal a top-four finish in the Premier League.

In all the misery that followed Liverpool’s disappointing performance at Hull City, one notable fact slipped under the radar: the quartet of Coutinho, Firmino, Lallana and Mane were all on the pitch for 83 minutes, which is the longest time they’ve played together in a league match this season.

Liverpool’s current fab four had performed brilliantly over the opening three months of the season, prior to the international break in November, and so the hope was that when they were finally reunited after a three-month gap that the Reds would extricate themselves from their funk.

That clearly wasn’t the case at the KCOM Stadium, but the team looked close to its vibrant best against Spurs, particularly in the first half.

Just how good have Liverpool been this season when these four key players have all been on the pitch though? The headline figures are that Klopp’s team have averaged 2.25 points per game in matches when they’ve played together (won eight, drawn three, lost one) and just 1.69 (won six, drawn four and lost three) when one or more of the quartet has not played.
