Five early contenders for Liverpool's player of the season

Liverpool have been in brilliant form so far this season. The Reds have picked up 11 wins from 12 in Premier League and opened an eight-point gap at the top of the table.

With the final international break of the year upon us, now is the perfect time to praise our top performers.

Here are our five early contenders for Liverpool’s player of the season.

The season began in the worst way possible for the Reds. Alisson Becker’s injury prompted a goalkeeping crisis and forced the club to scramble to sign a capable deputy.  Adrian proved to be just that and enjoyed an impressive two-month stint in the Liverpool goal.

The 32-year-old was the hero as the Reds won the Super Cup against Chelsea and he helped the us enjoy a long winning run to start the campaign.

Andy Robertson

The flying Scotsman has been a constant threat down the Liverpool left all season. Robertson currently has four assists and one more than Alexander-Arnold who he was sure to remind about it after we beat Manchester City.

The most impressive stat though is his goal return. He already has two goals to his name after finding the net just once in his previous two years on Merseyside.

Liverpool’s scouse full back racked up a world record 12 assists during the 2018/19 season and has picked up where he left off for the Reds. The 21-year-old has three assists so far and continues his competition with Liverpool left back Andy Robertson.

However, it is his range of passing that has most impressed the Anfield faithful this year. Jamie Carragher called him Steven Gerrard at right back and it seems just a matter of time before he moves into the Liverpool midfield.

The 26-year-old Brazilian has settled into Liverpool life after a tricky start at Anfield. His performances have become increasingly important to the Reds who depend on him to protect our back four.

Jurgen Klopp showed just how key Fabinho is when he rested him against Aston Villa in fear of losing him for the Manchester City game. The immense ability he has frees up our other midfielders be more adventurous. We have seen Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson reap the benefits of that from a new position.

Sadio Mane has played his best ever football under Jurgen Klopp this year. The Ballon d’Or nominee has already scored 11 goals during the 2019/20 season. One third of the worlds best front three he is starting to stand out from Mo Salah and Roberto Firmino.

The Senegalese international is so key one pundit claimed he was carrying his Liverpool teammates. He simply must be considered as a early candidate for Liverpool’s player of the season.
