A David Moyes stat to make Liverpool and Brendan Rodgers nervous?

David Moyes

David Moyes' win ratio was better at Manchester United than Brendan Rodgers' is at Liverpool.

'David Moyes is a football genius,' sang the Liverpool supporters as they stormed to a 3-0 success at Old Trafford last season.

The Manchester United boss had been struggling for some time and this defeat was a culmination of all the deficiencies in his side. 

It was a result, which saw the last of his support dwindle and Liverpool fans revelled in his and United's demise.

They have been looking up at their rivals for too long, but last season was the start of the Reds' resurgence. 

After climbing to second in the Premier League they were hoping to kick on and consolidate their position, but they have struggled to find any sort of form this campaign and it seems that Moyes may be staring to have the last laugh. 

The Scottish manager may have endured a torrid time at United, but his winning ratio is now better than Brendan Rodgers' at Liverpool.

Moyes won 52.94% of his games in-charge of United, while Rodgers has managed to pick up just 52.64% during his time at Liverpool.

Of course, the stats are slightly skewed due to the longevity of each managers' reign and the quality of the squads that they have inherited, but it is still a fact which highlights the Merseyside club's struggles this season. 

Further to this winning ratio, there are also comparisons to be made between the two teams' performances.

Man Utd under Moyes 1.6 1.1 13.4 12.3 490.7 55.1% 34
Liverpool 2014/15 1.3 1.1 14.6 10.6 498.5 55% 11

United actually scored more goals-per-game under Moyes than Rodgers' Liverpool have so far this season, which is a worry considering the Reds based their success on their attacking ability last year.

Another skill Liverpool have made their name upon is their ability to retain possession, but they are marginally behind Moyes' United in that respect, too. 

Considering the Scottish manager could only guide the Red Devils to seventh place, it shows the vast improvement needed by Liverpool if they are to haul themselves up the table and away from the mediocre position they are currently in.
