Sadio Mane (left) is one of the most valuable Liverpool players at the moment
Liverpool have been one of the form teams across Europe’s top five leagues this season. After seven games, the Reds are the only unbeaten team in the Premier League. They have also fared well in the Champions League, beating AC Milan 3-2 at home and winning 5-1 at Porto.
Jurgen Klopp’s men have benefitted from the prolific exploits of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane up front. At the other end of the field, Virgil van Dijk’s return has reinvigorated a beleaguered backline that struggled to keep out opposing teams last season.
Considering their start to the season, Liverpool could make a deep run in the Champions League and even win their second Premier League title in three years.
On that note, here’s a look at the five most valuable Liverpool players at the moment:
Note: All player valuations and stats are as per Transfermarkt unless mentioned otherwise.
#5 Alisson – €60 million
Alisson has had a good start to his campaign
Alisson is widely regarded as one of the best goalkeepers in the game at the moment.
The Brazil international has played a crucial role in Liverpool winning the Champions League and Premier League in successive seasons. He has kept an impressive 63 clean sheets in 139 games across competitions for the Reds, with four of them coming this season.
Last season, Alisson became the first goalkeeper in Liverpool history to score a competitive goal when he headed a 95th-minute winner against West Bromwich Albion.
The 29-year-old is an integral player in Jurgen Klopp’s team, a quintessential ball-playing keeper who helps build attacks from the back and is reliable with his glovework.
#4 Andy Robertson – €65 million
Andy Robertson is an important player for Liverpool
Andy Robertson is a key cog in Jurgen Klopp’s system. Together with Trent Alexander-Arnold (more on him later), the Scot forms one of the most devastating full-back partnerships in the game’s history.
Since arriving at Liverpool more than four years ago, Robertson has scored just five times in nearly 200 games across all competitions. However, he has racked up an impressive tally of 38 assists, including 12 in Liverpool’s triumphant 2019-20 Premier League campaign.
Robertson has provided only one assist in seven games across all competitions this season. However, he is expected to play a key role as Liverpool look to compete on multiple fronts.
#3 Trent Alexander-Arnold – €75 million
Trent Alexander-Arnold has excelled at Liverpool
Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold is arguably one of the most exciting young full-backs in the game right now. Still only 23, the Englishman has formed a devastating full-back partnership with Andy Robertson.
Like his full-back partner, Alexander-Arnold doesn’t score a lot of goals; he has scored only 10 in nearly 200 games for Liverpool across all competitions.
However, his tally of 47 assists, 13 of them in Liverpool’s triumphant 2019-20 Premier League campaign, is mightily impressive.
Alexander-Arnold has already accrued three assists across competitions this season.
#2 Sadio Mane – €85 million
Sadio Mane has been a terrific performer for Liverpool
Sadio Mane forms one-third of Liverpool’s fearsome attacking triumvirate of Mohamed Salah (more on him later) and Roberto Firmino.
A consistent goalscorer, Mane has racked up a century of goals for Liverpool in just over 200 games across all competitions. Needless to say, he has played a key role in the Reds’ emergence as a force to be reckoned with under Jurgen Klopp.
The 29-year-old is a big-game player, netting one of Liverpool’s goals in their 2-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur in the 2018-19 UEFA Champions League final.
The Senegal international has already scored five goals in the current campaign, with four of them coming in the Premier League.
#1 Mohamed Salah – €100 million
Mohamed Salah has been a force of nature for Liverpool
Mohamed Salah is one of the best wingers in the game at the moment. The prolific Egyptian is a quintessential goal-poacher, scoring goals as if for fun.
Since his arrival at Liverpool in the summer of 2017, Salah has endeared himself to the club faithful by scoring goals galore. With 32 league goals in his debut campaign, he won the Premier League Golden Boot and has not looked back since.
The 29-year-old has 134 strikes in just over 200 games for Liverpool across all competitions. He contributed 19 goals and 10 assists in the Reds’ triumphant 2019-20 Premier League campaign.
This season, Salah became the first player to score in five consecutive Premier League opening-day games. He already has nine goals this season, with six of them coming in the league.
