*That's right. Zero! Only Lucas has been sent off this season for Liverpool, and that was against Everton in the FA cup. 0 players sent off in the league and the champions League. Now, lets see how many players have been sent off when playing against Liverpool. *

Number of Opposing Players Sent Off: 8
1. Hull 1-3 Liverpool ( Sent off Folan)

*8 Players have been sent off playing against Liverpool. Of these 8 times games Liverpool won 7 Matches and drawn 1 (playing away). Liverpool have played 33 games this season and almost a _quarter _of the time it was against 10 men. *

Very interesting indeed.

What do you guys think about that?

Wow, 8 players sent off against Liverpool !

Interesting read RTID, the facts don't lie.

Still can't believe we have had 5 players sent off this season, usually our disciplinary record is quite but 5 players sent off is poor.
