The Reds are absolutely unstoppable this season, irresistible. Jürgen Klopp’s men have opened up an eight point lead at the top of the table and absolutely nobody looks like catching them. Such has been the form of Liverpool, it is inevitable that the Reds’ top players will be in contention for individual honours come the end of the season. Sadio Mane and Trent Alexander-Arnold should be the two favourites for the PFA Player of the Year award.
Sadio is already Garth Crooks’ favourite for the gong. The Senegalese forward has carried his side a times this year, bagging nine goals and four assists. He has shown a knack for pulling something out of nothing. When we have looked frustrated and out of ideas, he has simply stepped inside his defender and lashed it into the top corner.
Against Everton we were treated to a Sadio Mane masterclass, the winger was electric all game – he was too fast, too strong and too tricky for his opponents.
The Blues often tried to foul him to stop him but he wouldn’t even allow that, for our fourth goal Alex Iwobi tried to pull him down but instead Mane laid the ball off to Trent Alexander-Arnold and charged forward to finish off the move.
This brings us neatly on to Trent. The Scouser in our team has wowed pundits and fans alike this season, he has bagged six assists and created dozens of chances. His passing range and crossing ability have been a delight to behold. He has become our main creative force despite playing full back.
The value that the Scouser brings to the side cannot be underestimated. You notice it when he is absent, against Napoli we looked toothless in possession, as soon as he came on we looked dangerous.
Although Sadio Mane is arguable the favourite at the moment, Trent Alexander-Arnold should not be left out of the conversation for the PFA Player of the Year award.
