Three matches, 284 minutes, no goals, one shot on target and less than half the penalty-box touches of Manchester City wide man Raheem Sterling.
This collection of statistics makes for fairly grim reading when assessing how well Roberto Firmino is performing so far as the sole striker for Liverpool in the Premier League.
However, rather than call upon Daniel Sturridge or Divock Origi to lead the Liverpool line, there are reasons to believe that the Brazilian is doing a fine job, especially on the road.
Across the opening three Premier League gameweeks, no player in the top flight can trump Firmino’s 10 chances created, while his tireless workrate and harassing from the front regularly turns over possession in high areas.
Meanwhile, the space Firmino vacates by operating as a false nine is being occupied by the intelligent runs of others and it is they who are not supplying the end product.
Adam Lallana covered more grass than anyone in the draw at Tottenham and his move into a deeper central role this season has additionally enhanced his goal threat.
His eight chances in the box thus far is the same as Zlatan Ibrahimovic and a total bettered by only three Premier League players. Yet seven have been blocked.
Philippe Coutinho has also had 15 chances in total, the joint most in the division with Sergio Aguero. A better return than three goals could be expected from Lallana and Coutinho.
There is a worthy argument that Sturridge should start at Anfield against teams expected to finish in the bottom half of the Premier League and more likely to park the bus on the edge of their own box.
His penalty-box presence and more clinical nature may be necessary to break down such opposition, with Firmino dropping into a wide role opposite Mane and Coutinho also moving deeper to support Lallana in the position currently occupied by Georginio Wijnaldum.
However, against the Premier League’s elite, especially away from home, playing Firmino as a false nine has now been a success on multiple occasions. Think back to Stamford Bridge and the Etihad last season and then the Emirates and now White Hart Lane in this.
Although those playing as strikers are ultimately judged on their goal return, it is possible to flourish in the role by doing the off-the-ball work to bring the most out of others. Emile Heskey is one to have enjoyed a fruitful career at both club and international level with a goal return that was average at best.
By playing Firmino in this role and not Sturridge, Liverpool may be going without the regular goal getter that the likes of Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham can seemingly call upon, but that doesn’t automatically prevent them from reaching their goals this season.
Liverpool’s odds to finish in the top four are evens this season and that would have been their chief objective at the start of the campaign.
