    Player Positional Tracker: West Ham v Liverpool

    By Colin Trainor
  • West Ham 3 vs 1 Liverpool

    Visualisation that shows the smoothed positions of players around the time as indicated.  The locations are identified with reference to actions as seen through the eyes of Opta.


    • It is noticeable that Downing played in a central attacking position; directly on top of Gerrard
    • Liverpool joined the “3 at the Back” club as they attempted to get back into the game after conceding the couple of early goals
    • As expected, the last half hour was almost total Liverpool possession; this can be seen through the very small size of the West Ham dots
