The 2018/19 PFA team of the year was dominated by Liverpool and Manchester City last year. Right now there are only two players in the Premier League that would get into the current Liverpool team. Bernardo Silva and Kevin De Bruyne.
The first thing to address is: what about Raheem Sterling? The ex Reds winger has been in unstoppable form this year, well, apart from City’s decisive 3-2 loss to Premier League new boys Norwich. Sterling wouldn’t get into this Liverpool team because there is no need for him. There is no need to break up our front 3 in any shape or form right now.
The Reds’ attacking trio of Mo Salah, Bobby Firmino and Sadio Mane is the best front line in world football as it stands. They have developed a telepathy that has made them irresistible on the front foot and they have a work rate that suffocates opposition that try and play out from the back.
Bernardo Silva would get into the Liverpool side because his sensational work rate is matched by his creativity. Liverpool have midfielders that don’t stop working but none that also have the level of dribbling and passing ability that Bernardo boasts.
Kevin de Bruyne walks into any team in the world. Whilst he may not have the defensive work rate that Jürgen Klopp demands off his players, he is incredibly coachable. His passing ability and flair would set Liverpool miles apart from other opposition. The Reds midfield hasn’t been at its creative best as of late but they still stifle their opposition, add a play-making genius into the mix and there would be no match for us.
