Liverpool have, no doubt, been wasteful in front of goal at times this season.
Needing two goals as a minimum against Real Madrid in the Champions League, they failed to find the net despite seemingly creating several good chances, accumulating an expected goals value of 1.16 according to Infogol.
In their last 10 home games, Liverpool have created only 12 'clear-cut' chances to score (excluding penalties), according to Opta, with only two of those finding the back of the net. Not only, then, are they not creating a great deal at times, but when those chances come, they are not taking them either.
One man who very much is taking his chances, generally, though, is Mohamed Salah, who has netted at least 16 more times than any other Reds man so far in 2020/21.
Sadio Mane and Diogo Jota (both with 12) are next on the list, with Roberto Firmino on six.
While Mane, in particular, is performing significantly worse than you might expect in the goalscoring department given his impact in previous seasons, Salah is roughly on a par with what could be expected of him statistically.
"Salah is overperforming in the Premier League this season by 1.1 goals which is not far off average finishing," said Josh Williams on the latest Analysing Anfield podcast.
"Last season, he was underperforming at about 1.2 so for two seasons or so, he has performed about average overall.

"In his debut season, he overperformed by 10.2 and the season after that by 2.2."
"So beyond that first season where he was at insane, Luis Suarez-esque levels it is kind of on par," said David Hughes.
"Sometimes it can look worse with Salah because he has a lot of chances."
Criticism of Salah, at least, in terms of his finishing, then, is largely unwarranted - and Mane and Firmino are not exactly helping that, despite their own troubles.
Mane should have scored 4.07 more goals than he has, according to Understat's xG model, while Firmino should have 4.62 more.

"Quite often Salah will have a chance that he misses that sticks in your memory," Hughes added.
"That would not normally be an issue [if other players are in-form and scoring] but if all three are having those games on a consistent basis, it has a bigger impact on the team and adds pressure on each other.
"If you are Salah with Mane and Firmino either side of you who are in good form and you miss a chance, it is OK.
"But all three know the other two are not converting and that adds an extra layer of pressure - it is minute details like that."
