They are the bread and butter of football metrics.
For a game that is becoming increasingly forensic in its analysis of performance, it is goals and assists that are still the most readily pointed to when attacking value is being determined.
The rise of indicators such as xG (expected goals) and xA (expected assists), among many others, are able to offer a more rounded overview of a player and team's ability and output, but the staple numbers are firmly in place.
For a side that is sometimes accused of relying too much on the contributions of their front three against opposition goalkeepers, Liverpool's goal column was populated by as many as 19 different players last season.
The five own goals they were the beneficiaries of takes that up to a round 20, but the weight of their 117 strikes netted across all competitions was largely shouldered by Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.
Between them, they rattled in a combined 67 to account for 57 per cent of the goals scored by Jurgen Klopp 's Premier League champions.
No change there, then.
As one of the most feared front trios in world football, they have plundered 253 goals for Liverpool since their respective arrivals.
Their collective record stands at 91 when Salah bagged an unbelievable 44 on top of Mane and Firmino's respective returns of 20 and 27 in 2018.
“Imagine where I would be if these boys would not play for me – wow," was Klopp's succinct assessment when they broke the 250 barrier last month.
But if the goals that are scored between Salah, Mane and Firmino are the lion's share of the Reds' output, those supplying the killer pass are more varied.
Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson's friendly rivalry to top the assist charts has become a running theme at Anfield over the past couple of years.
Both full-backs have reinvented how Klopp's team attack, creating a string of assists to help fire the Reds to Champions League, Club World Cup and Premier League glory over the past year or so.
Once again, it was Alexander-Arnold who edged out his close friend Robertson with 13 to 12.
With his baker's dozen coming via a peach of a cross for Firmino's header against Chelsea, Alexander-Arnold eclipsed own record of the year previous when he became the defender with the most assists in a Premier League season.
In total, the West Derby-born right-back chipped in with 14 across all competitions, marking him out as one of the very best attacking full-backs in the game today.

Robertson's cushioned pass to Divock Origi for Liverpool's second against Newcastle on the final day of the campaign left him just one short of his fellow full-back.
The race will once more be on between two of the finest around when the new campaign begins.
With a total of 48 assists between them over the last two Premier League seasons, their creativity will again be in demand as the Reds aim to retain a title they fought 30 years for.
Salah reached double figures in the assist in the column to finish fourth in the Premier League overall last term.
For a player who is occasionally criticised for a selfish streak befitting of one of the game's greatest goal-getters, that tally of 10 directly contradicts those theories. Only Robertson, Alexander-Arnold and Kevin De Bruyne finished ahead of him.
A further two in the Champions League left the Egyptian on a cool dozen for the campaign.
Firmino is another who has chipped in significantly from a creative standpoint. The Brazil international's dozen goals were followed up by a tally of eight assists in the top flight to give Liverpool as many as four players inside the division's top 10.
An additional quartet in the Champions League leave Liverpool's No.9 on 12 for assists and 13 for goals. Not too shabby for a striker who is sometimes accused of not finding the net enough.
Mane's seven assists domestically leave him on nine in total for the season to sit neatly alongside the 22 goals across the entire campaign.
With as many as five players serving up these sorts of numbers posted, it is little wonder Liverpool stormed to the Premier League title by as many as 18 points.
The task now is to better those when it all starts up again in just over a month's time.
