3 Players Who Have Had a Significant Impact on Liverpool’s Success this Season

Given how dominant they have been in the Premier League, determining who is going to win the PFA Player of the Year and/or the Liverpool Player of the Season is going to be no easy task.

That said, we are going to look at three players who we feel have been the most consistent in the campaign, and in turn, instrumental to its success.

Trent Alexander-Arnold

One of Liverpool’s biggest strengths is the way their full-backs play a big role in their attacking play. Andrew Robertson and Trent Alexander-Arnold have 19 assists between them in the Premier League this season.

Although a strong case can be made for including Robertson on this list, the preference must go to Alexander-Arnold. The Englishman is flourishing as a fantastic right-back for his club and country.

Only the excellent Kevin de Bruyne has more Premier League assists than Alexander-Arnold in the 2019/20 campaign. The 21-year-old is going to be a big part of this Liverpool team for years to come and he quite rightly deserves all the plaudits he is getting at the moment.

Jordan Henderson

The common denominator amongst great teams is that they all have a fantastic leader. This certainly holds true for Liverpool who are led by Jordan Henderson.

Many pundits believe Henderson is now the most influential player in this Liverpool team. That is some claim when you consider it includes the likes of Virgil van Dijk, Roberto Firmino, Mo Salah and Sadio Mane.

Liverpool are now long odds-on in the football betting to lift the Premier League trophy. Henderson has kept his teammates levelled throughout the campaign which has meant they have not become complacent at any stage.

Not only has the Englishman been vital with his leadership skills, he has taken his own game to a new level this season. Every blade of grass has been covered by the Liverpool skipper, while he has also provided his fair share of assists to the dangerous front three.

Sadio Mane

It is very difficult to single out one player from Liverpool’s front three as they work well together collectively. Without one of the cogs in that wheel, the others would suffer considerably.

However, a special mention must go to Mane as he has looked unplayable at times this season. The Senegalese international has scored 18 goals in all competitions. He looks on course to reach 20 goals or more for the third straight year.

Mane has shown he has everything you’d look for in a forward: pace, strength and fantastic finishing ability. He is probably at the very peak of his game right now and although he is one third of that fantastic forward trio, the individual awards are sure to flood his way at the end of the campaign, and they will be much deserved.

While there are so many players who did not make the list above, their impact should not be overlooked. It’s a sign of how strong of a squad Jurgen Klopp has built on Merseyside, something which buoys well for the future.
