Liverpool was found to have pursued a cross-heavy game last season in the league, which proved ineffective. A very interesting statistical analysis by user WillTGM from EPLindex, as well as very interesting finds. While many football theorists have often stated that crossing is inefficient, not only did LFC pursue this way of playing, but we were terrible at it. Using the ratio of passes in the attacking half to crossing, Liverpool were one of the teams that passed the least in the attacking half before crossing, with only 14 passes per cross. Arsenal in comparison had 19, Man City with 21. Only Sunderland Wolves and Stoke, unsurprisingly passed less before crossing. Shockingly, Liverpool were the worst in the league at scoring from crosses, needing more than 400 crosses to score a goal. Norwich and Man Utd needed less than 50. Most teams hovered about a hundred. Brendan Rodger's Swansea had about 19 passes in the attacking half per cross though, so our problems may be somewhat at an end, though this might go some way into explaining our troubles last season.
