Stat's a Fact - Liverpool

We take a look at Darren Randolph's Man of the Match display against Liverpool
Slaven Bilic could not have asked for any more from Darren Randolph when called upon this season.
The Republic of Ireland international goalkeeper has had to be patient for opportunities this term given the outstanding form of Adrian, but when he has had the chance between the sticks he has shown exactly why the Hammers signed him from Birmingham City in the summer.
Saturday’s clean sheet at Liverpool was the second Anfield shutout he has kept this season, and the sixth in just eight appearances for the Club.
He has certainly proven himself as a more than able deputy for Adrian and football stats website agreed, giving him Man of the Match honours with a match rating of 8.7
The Irishman was certainly busier than his opposite number Simon Mignolet, making six saves to the Belgian’s one.
Three of Randolph’s stops came within seconds of each other, as he denied Christian Benteke twice, and Joe Allen with a triple sequence of saves in the second half.
In addition, the No1 made one punch to win the solitary aerial duel he was involved in, completed one clearance and 29 passes.
All in, he has proven a steady influence behind his back four to cement his position as a hugely important member of Bilic’s squad.
