Fabinho - 164/200

A destroyer at the base of midfield, Fabinho is a genuinely wonderful number six.

Roberto Firmino - 162/200

Not quite as good as Mane and Salah, but Firmino makes those two mega stars tick, and makes the attack work.

Andrew Robertson - 159/200

A left-back who can do pretty much everything, Robertson is perhaps the best left-back in the Premier League.

Trent Alexander-Arnold - 159/200

It’s no surprise that Alexander-Arnold has the same rating as Robertson, but the England international probably does offer slightly more going forward, with his free-kick taking ability and his crossing from deep.

Jordan Henderson - 159/200

Liverpool’s captain fantastic, you can’t argue with him being here when he’s lifted the biggest trophies in the club game.

Joel Matip - 156/200

A way behind Van Dijk in terms of ability, but Matip has proven himself a reliable performer in the centre of defence.

Diogo Jota - 155/200

The rotation option behind Mane, Salah, and Firmino, Jota will surely get you a few goals in various cup competitions.

Joe Gomez - 153/200

Gomez is the kind of defender you ought to give minutes to, as he can grow into a genuinely fearsome centre-back under your management.

Naby Keita - 152/200

An excellent midfielder with real athleticism on his side, Keita may not be the best in his position at the club, but he’ll be a reliable performer for you.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain - 151/200

Keep Oxlade-Chamberlain injury-free and you’ve got an excellent midfielder on your hands.

James Milner - 150/200

A truly decorated veteran of the game, Milner is sure to be a vocal presence in your dressing room, so keep him on side.

Divock Origi - 146/200

Will he ever really start games? Probably not. But Origi is a dynamite option from the bench, as Barcelona well know!

Takumi Minamino - 142/200

A way behind the best attackers at the club, Minamino is nevertheless an intriguing option from the bench, and for the cup competitions.

Kostas Tsimikas - 137/200

Robertson’s back-up. There’s not a lot more to be said here.

Curtis Jones - 137/200

Jones isn’t the finished article but you ought to give him some minutes so he can improve under your management.


It’s little surprise that Liverpool have been hoovering up trophies left, right, and centre with a squad like this.

The Reds have seven players over 160 CA, and that means they should be winning far more games than they lose.

If you do take the reins at Liverpool, the pressure is on to win.
