Mo Salah was then most popular pick in the game throughout the season and he finished as the top points scorer in FPL this season.

Liverpool kept 21 clean sheets this season. This was tied top with Man City and more than every other team in the League. They conceded just 26 goals, level with Man City, no other team conceded fewer.

Van Dijk was the only defender who registered all 21 clean sheets. He was the top defender clearances and blocks at Liverpool this season. He also registered six attacking returns during the campaign.

Alexander-Arnold supplied 273 crosses this season. He also took 131 corners and 23 free kicks, highlighting his route to points.

Matip was also the best value player in the game this season. The defender earned 32.1 points per million this season, making him highly attractive option for the 22/23 season.

Overall

Liverpool are likely to be in the race for the title again in the 2022/23 season. The underlying stats also suggest that they should be high on FPL managers wish lists. When the fixture lists are announced on the 16th of June managers will likely be deciding whether to double up in attack or with Liverpool’s talented defenders.
