Liverpool’s Premier League season has unravelled in a remarkable way, but their woes have now been compounded after a humiliating statistic involving Harry Kane and Gareth Bale emerged.
Much of the problems that the Reds have suffered have been caused by their woeful form at home, which recently saw them lose six successive league games at Anfield.
After scoring more than 50 home goals in two successive season, Jurgen Klopp’s side have netted just 25 times on Merseyside this season, the fewest in the top seven.
In fact, more than half of their total goals this term have come away from home, with Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino both struggling for form.
With the Reds’ midfielders and defenders also failing to find the back of the net, many of their goals have come from Mohamed Salah.
To highlight just how much Liverpool’s have struggled to score, it has emerged that six Premier League players have scored more home goals than the Reds have in 2021.
Those six are Kane, Bale, Ilkay Gundogan, Jesse Lingard, Kelechi Iheanacho and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who have all netted more than the four Liverpool have managed.
Kane has notched six times at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium since the start of the year, with Bale scoring five, despite being out of favour under former manager Jose Mourinho.
To make that feat even more humiliating for the Reds is the fact that Bale and Aubameyang have scored in three games or less since the end of December.
Lingard meanwhile went a year without scoring in 2019, but his move to West Ham has revitalised him, with the midfielder scoring five times at the London Stadium.
Gundogan has also found the back of the net five times, despite spending time out with a groin strain.
