Football study group CIES has been assessing clubs around the continent and how many fouls they have committed, with ​Liverpool coming out best with the least amount of fouls done by any club across Europe.


The International Football Observatory (CIES) has published a study based around the fouls that have been committed by clubs. It not only indicates the average number of fouls committed per game, but also calculates the percentage of fouls of each team in respect of each league's average. In total, 35 European leagues have been assessed, which equates to around 700 teams.


In terms of the world rankings, the club that currently holds the titles of European and World Champion, have also proven themselves to be playing with the fewest fouls. 




Liverpool's players have committed an average of 8.14 fouls per game in the ​Premier League, which comes in at a massive 22% under that of all teams combined in the competition. Jurgen Klopp's team has been incredible this season, winning all except one match, and are still unbeaten in the campaign.


While there are many reasons for Liverpool being the cleanest side in Europe with regards to fouls, much of it is due to them holding bulk of the possession in the game, however, their high pressing could have worked against them in these stats. But, to concluded, they have been inch-perfect with regards to their game-plan for almost a year now.


The other top clubs to join leaders Liverpool in the list are ​Bayern Munich​Borussia Dortmund​Chelsea​Leicester City​Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City among others.
