  • - Man of the match Joe Allen, who made his home debut, had a pass completion rate of 93.5%, the highest in the match. Rodgers was over the moon with the new Anfield midfield dynamo. "He’s five foot six but in terms of a footballer, he is seven foot six. He is absolutely immense – his courage to get on the ball, his body work is fantastic; how he reads the game, his football intelligence." The average for midfielders who have played more than 30 games last season is 82.3 per cent. Allen made 2,177 passes last campaign, the average midfielder made just 1,321.
