After an incredible season, you would be hard pressed to decide who is Liverpool’s most valuable player with several key men all right up there together.

Since he signed for Liverpool, Mohamed Salah has been directly involved in 92 goals.

This is made all the more impressive when you consider that only Lionel Messi (116) has been involved in more over the same time period.

Given how prolific Salah has been since the start of last season, it’s absolutely mental that there are actually players at Liverpool that are potentially more valuable to the club than the Egyptian.

Virgil van Dijk, for example, won the PFA Player of the Year and has taken his teammates to new levels in defensive areas.

Without the Dutchman, there is almost no chance that the Reds would have made it to two Champions League finals as his presence at the back has propelled them to new heights.

There isn’t currently a defender in the entire world that is better than the Dutchman and his value since he joined Liverpool for £75million has skyrocketed.


Yet, Trent Alexander-Arnold has to be the most valuable player at Anfield as a result of how good he can become and how good he already is despite being just 20.

This season, he registered 12 assists in the Premier League and is now the highest assisting defender in a single league campaign.

His tally is just three behind Eden Hazard, who is widely considered as the most creative forward in England.

The young Scouser still has over a decade of football ahead of him and will be considered as one of the best ever right-backs when he retires.

The best thing is that as a born and bred Liverpudlian, he will likely want to stay at the club forever.
