Liverpool have set new unprecedented heights in what has been an extraordinary 2019/20 campaign for Jurgen Klopp’s record-breaking Reds.

Along the way of an enthralling 38-game season, Liverpool won 32 matches, scored 85 goals and secured title no.19.

Even though Liverpool were not the most prolific scorers in the division, Manchester City managed 102 goals, the Reds showcased that they are able to uncover numerous strategies to win matches.

It is notable that Liverpool’s players registered six of the top 15 assists to goalscorer combinations in the Premier League, according to WhoScored.

Six assists to goalscorer combinations that were pivotal in Reds coronation as champions

Andy Robertson to Mohamed Salah (4): Liverpool’s ever-present left-back has been a hallmark of consistency for the English champions this season. Robertson went one better than last season boasting an impressive PL assist tally of 12, Robertson came third in the domestic standings, behind teammate Trent Alexander-Arnold and Kevin de Bruyne. Robertson and Salah proved to be Liverpool’s most clinical partnership. Their link-up for the second goal against Manchester City unquestionably was one of the Reds’ goals of the season.

Trent Alexander-Arnold to Roberto Firmino (3): Unsurprisingly, the PL top marksman over the past 24 months features heavily on this list. The pair combined for two goals against Leicester City on Boxing Day as Liverpool romped to a 4-0 victory which was arguably the team’s finest performance of the season. Alexander-Arnold also helped Firmino break his Anfield duck against Chelsea during the penultimate game of the season.


Roberto Firmino to Mohamed Salah (3): Firmino’s involvement again on this list showcases there is so much more to his game than goals. The tricksy Brazilian assisted three of Salah’s 19 league goals this season, the pick of the bunch coming against Newcastle back in September where some audacious skill from Firmino took three Newcastle players out of the game before Salah dully tucked home.

Andy Robertson to Sadio Mane (3): The second time Robertson features on the list. Both the Scotsman and Mane have been utterly irresistible on the left flank for Liverpool this season. Again, the pick of the goals from the left-sided duo was against Newcastle where Robertson pulled a ball back to Mane who cut in on his right before rifling an effort into the top corner.

Trent Alexander-Arnold to Virgil van Dijk (3): Our personal favourite combination. Van Dijk has taken his game to another level in terms of goal contributions. He took his tally for the season to five goals after scoring on the final day at St James’ Park. Alexander-Arnold was the provider for both of the Dutchman’s goals against Brighton in October. The most iconic goal, however, indeed came against Manchester United where Van Dijk towered over Harry Maguire to open the scoring in one of the defining goals of the season.

Trent Alexander-Arnold to Sadio Mane (3): The third and final time Alexander-Arnold features on the list. Incredibly the scouser in our team has clocked up 25 assists from right-back over the past two seasons. He and Mane proved another fundamental partnership to Liverpool’s title success this season. The duo were directly involved in the goal that typified the never-say-die mentality Jurgen Klopp has installed into his players after Alexander-Arnold’s corner was headed home by Mane against Aston Villa in the 94th minute to round off an astonishing victory.
