Liverpool are the best team in Europe in this statistic

Liverpool's recent form sees the Merseyside outfit top the form table across Europe.

Liverpool have experienced a tremendous turn of form of late. In fact, the club are unbeaten in the Premier League since their December defeat to Manchester United - a period spanning seven top flight fixtures.

Brendan Rodgers' side have battled through a shaky start to the 2014-15 campaign, and following recent results, they now sit seventh in the English top flight, just four points off fourth place and potential Champions League qualification.   

Impressively, this recent string of results places the Merseyside outfit at the summit of the European form table; an incredible achievement considering the wealth of competition they face across the continent's top five leagues.

Having earned 16 points in their previous six fixtures, Rodger's side rank level with Ligue 1 leaders Lyon, while reigning superior over Barcelona, Real Madrid and Premier League rivals Arsenal; all of whom are tied to the same total (15). 

The Reds will be desperate to avoid defeat as they make the short journey across Stanley Park to take on city rivals Everton this weekend - Roberto Martinez's side occupy 12th place, while they sit 16th based on recent form. 

With their opponents languishing in the lower reaches of the Premier League table, it's fair to say Rodgers will be expecting three points and a performance to match. A victory at Goodison Park would see the club maintain top spot in the European rankings for at least another week.
