I sincerely apologize, but real life has taken over in the last few days and I haven't had the time I'm usually able to devote to these. So, while you're getting the graphic, I don't have the usual 800 or so words following. Seems better to just get this up than take another day to get words out. Sunday's match review will have to suffice as far as written nonsense from me goes, but I will point to a couple of odds and ends.

• This is, as usual, an outstanding match review from The Anfield Wrap's Neil Atkinson.

• It's the first time since I started tracking Liverpool's shot location in 2013-14 where Liverpool went an entire league match without a shot from outside the box. That's one match out of 143, and I'd bet that streak goes back even longer.

• While Liverpool will finish the campaign unbeaten against the top six sides – with five wins and five draws – this was the third out of five draws where Liverpool had a 1-0 lead but the match finished 1-1. As happened at Tottenham and Manchester United. Those could have been some very valuable points.

Also, I will try to make it up to you by getting my spreadsheets for shots and goals from Liverpool and their opponents for the current season fully updated and online before the weekend.
