The Liverpool attack

The best Liverpool attackers
In the last six Gameweeks no player in the league has a better non-penalty expected goal involvement than Mohamed Salah (£12.8m). The Egyptian midfielder has banked a huge 49 points in the same period consisting of four goals and three assists. Not just that but Salah also takes his teams penalties, giving the standout Liverpool option an additional route to points.
Another option some could consider is Darwin Nunez (£8.8m). Amongst all strikers in the last six Gameweeks Nunez ranks joint third for attempts in the box (13). He also managed a 12-point haul in one of his most recent games. Nunez picked up a knock recently so monitoring news could be key to selecting him.
Cody Gakpo (£7.7m) is also a very good option. The Dutch midfielder has accumulated six big chances in the last six Gameweeks, which is only beaten by two other players in the league. Gakpo has also banked four goals in his last six Premier League matches.
The Liverpool defence
This season Liverpool rank amongst the best five teams for goals conceded (29), clean sheets kept (10), shots in the box conceded (191) and attempts from set plays conceded (65). However they also rank the joint second worst team in the league for big chances conceded (75).
More recently in the last six Gameweeks Liverpool rank the best for goals conceded (one), the best for clean sheets (five) and joint second best for shots on target conceded (12). The Reds also rank around mid-table for big chances conceded (12).
The best Liverpool defensive players
The standout option at the back for Liverpool is Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.3m). Not only does the full-back take corners and free-kicks but amongst defenders in the last six matches he ranks first for chances created (12) and first for big chances created (four).
The second best option could be Andrew Robertson (£6.8m). Robertson betters his teammate and every other defender in the league this season for assists (six). The Scotsman is also considerably cheaper than Trent. In addition, Robertson has also picked up four returns in his last five starts in the Premier League.
