There's A Reason Why Liverpool Have Changed The Colour Of Their Nets At Anfield
If your attention to detail is as bad as mine, you probably didn't recognise that the netting on the goals at Anfield were a different colour on Saturday afternoon, but why have they changed?
The much-changed Anfield looked rather impressive this weekend against Leicester City as the club extended the stadium capacity to 54,074 but looking away from the new stand, some eagle-eyed viewers noticed the different netting colour after Jurgen Klopp and his backroom staff decided to change things up.
Liverpool wanted to change the colour from red to white because it makes the net more visible to the players' peripheral vision - thus leading to more goals being scored.
Well that's the plan.

Anfield have sported red netting from August 2012 but Jurgen Klopp and co were having none of it.
Well, they bagged four times against Claudio Ranieri's side on Saturday evening so it the new coloured netting clearly worked against the Premier League champions.
Liverpool scored 87 goals under Jurgen Klopp in all competitions last campaign, so let's see if they can beat that stat in the coming months,
Where do you think Liverpool will finish this season?
