FPL: The 5 Best Liverpool Players For Your 2022-23 Season Fantasy Team

FPL: The 5 Best Liverpool Players For Your 2022-23 Season Fantasy Team

Liverpool over the past few years have been one of the best teams in the world. They’re like a well-oiled machine running at maximum efficiency. The board rarely misses with their signings, and Klopp is able to integrate them well into his team.

They’re a very exciting team to watch and most importantly have some of the best FPL assets available heading into the new season. The fact that there are players who’re going to play every minute they’re fit and playing in this Liverpool team means they will surely score a boat load of points. So let’s have a look at the top 5 FPL assets for your team from Liverpool.

5. Darwin Núñez (£9.0m)

Klopp’s sparking new toy, Darwin Nunez is certainly someone you should consider having in your squad. Last season in the Champions League he showed he can cut it at the very top level.

He had a pretty spectacular season at Benfica last year with 26G and 4A in just 28 games. While the Portuguese league isn’t the best in the world, their players seem to translate well into the Premier League.

At 6’1 he has a solid build and won’t be fazed by the PL defenders. He is versatile and has played on the right wing as well as in a front 2. He takes a lot of shots with 3.87/90 and has an accuracy of 50% which is high for a striker. Stats aside, Liverpool and Klopp’s track record shows that he is likely to score a fair few goals, he could be a great differential pick.

4. Andy Robertson (£7.0m)

Often considered the “defensive” full-back at Liverpool, Robertson still finished the season with 3G and 10A. A marauding LB who does just as well defending or attacking. His underlying numbers back his performances up as well.

He makes 3.51 shot-creating actions, 0.3 A/90 and receives 3.72 pregressive passes, these put him in the top 5% of full backs in the top 5 leagues. He’s been there and done it, a safe and almost guaranteed points machine.

40 assists in the past 4 seasons shows impressive consistency. His passing is quite underrated as he makes 7.02 progessive passes and 4.93 passes into the final third. Nunez’s addition makes Robertson a better pick as he could get a few more assists. Finally, the fact that Liverpool keep a lot of clean sheets, last season he kept 17 clean sheets.

3. Luis Díaz (£8.0m)

Luis Diaz was one of the most exciting players to watch in the league since his arrival. Mazy runs and skills for days he is an amazing player and Mane’s exit will mean more minutes for him. He made 9.8 progressive passes, 7.58 touches in the box and completed 2.9 dribbles. 

While these stats are impressive, it paints him like a Staint-Maximin kind of player, but he is anything but. He takes 3.57 shots on target and from a 16-yard range on average.

The most exciting thing about Diaz is his price, at £8.0m he is cheap entry into the Liverpool attack and will help you save some cash for another premium player. A player who will be very popular and someone you will likely have in your team at some point in the season.

2. Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.5m)

The best defender in the world right now, Trent is just on another level. He has redefined his position and has become a must-have in FPL. He is pretty much the best defender when it comes to shot-creating actions, assists, goal contributions and progressive passes.

12A and 2G  from 32 appearances. He finished last season with 208 points and is a bonus point magnet. As for Trent is a set and forget and will be someone who will be in everyone’s team.

Getting him into your team in the early doors will be a good idea as he finished last season at £8.4m. Buying him later in the season could prove difficult. He has the best points per million for any player last season as well,  meaning a great return on investment.

1. Mohamed Salah (£13.0m)

From the best defender, we now come to the best midfielder of last season. Salah had a sensational season, and although his performance dropped off a bit in the second half of the season he still won the golden boot ending the season with a staggering 23G and 14A.

In FPL too he finished the season with the most points at 265 points. His underlying numbers also show a player who’s at the peak of his powers. He is in the top 1% of midfielders for goals, assists, shot-creating actions, progressive passes received, and almost every other important metric. He is also the designated penalty taker making him even more of a must-have.
