Liverpool are on a nine game unbeaten run in the Premier League but take on a difficult looking Southampton side this weekend. Looking at the stats behind Liverpool's recent successes has reveled they are currently the best side in the Premier League in one particular area.
LIVERPOOL LEAD THE WAY IN SHOOTING VOLUME
No side in the Premier League has averaged more shots in their last 10 games than Liverpool.

At 11 shots per game they are averaging a full four shots ahead of the likes of Manchester City, Chelsea and Spurs.
With Daniel Sturridge only three Premier League games into a return then this is only likely going to improve even further as he finds his form.
This shot domination is built on taking the lead in games and forcing the other teams to chase. In eight of Liverpool's last nine Premier League games they've opened the scoring and gone on to win six of these. Forcing a team to attack Liverpool is always going to leave holes for the likes of Sterling, Coutinho, Lallana, Markovic and Ibe to exploit, especially on counter attacks. This gets even worse when they open the scoring very early on in games; recently they've scored before the 25 minute mark has even passed against four of the last six Premier League teams they've faced.
