The new Premier League season is fast approaching and Liverpool fans will be hoping their club can bounce back from an underwhelming campaign last time out.
The 5 Best Liverpool Players for FPL 2023-24
At 5.5, he is one of the pricier goalkeepers. However, from gameweek 30 onwards when Liverpool moved to their 3-2-2-3 formation, they conceded 1.06 xGA/90 – the league’s 4th lowest.
If Liverpool’s defensive stats continue like this, considering he maintained a healthy 72.10% save rate last season he should be getting both clean sheets and save points.
If you are looking for a route into a potentially revived Liverpool defence and don’t have the funds for £8.0m Trent Alexander-Arnold, he could be a worthwhile pick..
Diogo Jota (£8.0m)
Whilst not hot in terms of minutes, starting only 6 of his last 10 and facing competition at left wing by the likes of Luis Diaz and Darwin Nunez, he does seem to be first choice.
His inclusion is due to his surprisingly good attacking data – since gameweek 30 he has averaged 0.80 xGI/90 which is 3rd among all regularly starting midfielders in that period.
Whilst fixtures may not be the best, his reclassification to a midfielder and a price drop to 8.0 makes him a serious differential contender with very low ownership.
Cody Gakpo (£7.5m)
Gakpo looks to be the most nailed Liverpool attacker after Salah, starting 17 of 21 games since joining Liverpool.
Whilst he has been reclassified as a forward which takes away some of his appeal, he should be the first choice striker at Liverpool and since gameweek 30 he racked up the 5th most xGI among forwards at 5.29 xGI – a fair amount considering his mid-priced £7.5m cost.
At just 5.0% ownership, he is an appealing differential and whilst he might not have the highest ceiling of the Liverpool attackers playing in the false nine role, on paper his consistent minutes should make up for it in the long run.
Mohamed Salah (£12.5m)
Owned by just 25% at the time of writing, is the FPL king being overlooked by the masses? Whilst Salah’s premium price tag of £12.5m is certainly substantial, gameweek 30 onwards he had the most xGI/90 among all regularly starting midfielders in the league with 1.19 xGI/90.
As mentioned, whilst the fixtures may not be the best in the short term, that Bournemouth home fixture in GW2 leaps out and Salah could even compete Haaland for captaincy as City host Newcastle.
Salah or Sal-nah is one of the hottest debates among managers and will likely continue right until the deadline.
Trent Alexander-Arnold (£8.0m)
Provided he continues in his inverted right back role and not as a 6 like he did against Karlsruhe in a friendly, he’s the best Liverpool asset despite his hefty £8.0m price tag.
Alexander-Arnold racked up an astonishing 5.33 xA since gameweek 30 – more than twice than any other defender in that period, with it being reflected in his 7 assists over that period.
With Trent, you essentially get a very creative midfielder on most set pieces who also gets clean sheet points. So long as he continues featuring as an inverted right back, he looks like he could prove great value despite being the most expensive defender in the game
