Naby Keita, Joel Matip, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Xherdan Shaqiri have all been sidelined at points this season.
Liverpool should consider selling
Heading into this summer Liverpool should consider selling their most unrealiable stars.

The games piling up, coupled with a shortened pre-season, has caused our first team to struggle for form at times.

Reinvest in reliability
Should the Reds decide to cash in on their more injury prone stars, they could reinvest the money in more reliable rotation options.
We would surely generate a significant sum if we were to move on the quartet.
We’d likely make a healthy profit on them, particularly given that Joel Matip arrived on a free transfer.
Class is good but availability is more important, we learned that this season.
