Stat Attack: Liverpool v Spurs

·    Liverpool continued a good run of form with a 3-0 victory over Wolves in their last Barclays Premier League game

·    Andy Carroll scored on the anniversary of his £35 million move from Newcastle, and goals from Dirk Kuyt and Craig Bellamy secured a comfortable win

·    Carroll has three Barclays Premier League goals this season from 47 efforts at goal, with 51% on target

·    Jordan Henderson covered the most ground for Liverpool in that game with 6.76 miles

·    Bellamy has Liverpool’s best rate of passes completed in his opponent’s half, with one every 3 minutes 43 seconds, to go with his six goals from 28 efforts at goal this season with 64%

·    Kuyt’s goal was his first for Liverpool in the league this season, despite having had 28 attempts at goal with 64% on target

·    Spurs outclassed Wigan to win 3-1 in their last Barclays Premier League game

·    Two goals from Gareth Bale and one from Luka Modric capped a sensational performance from the pair

·    Bale completed 12 dribbles in that game, more than any other player in the EA SPORTS Player Performance Index and the 7th highest total posted by any player this season

·    While his fellow midfielders grabbed the headlines, Scott Parker once again covered the most ground for Spurs with 6.88 miles. Parker also attempted more tackles than any other player in the EA SPORTS Player Performance Index in the last round of games with 11 tackles attempted (of which he won 8)

·    Spurs surprised many by bringing in Louis Saha in the January transfer window and letting Roman Pavyluchenko leave for Spartak Moscow. Saha had scored just one goal for Everton this season despite having had 48 shots at goal with 54% on target
