The results of the Premier League make people feel bad for Leicester. However, if you delve deeper into the scores soccer of the English football championship, then the loser’s laurels should definitely go to Liverpool. But there is nothing to judge the Merseysiders for, especially if you know huge problems that prevented the team from showing their best throughout the season. The endless injuries of the leaders have significantly influenced the success of Liverpool. Almost the entire championship, the Reds played without their best defenders, and some players of the attacking line were absent every now and then too.
Despite a disastrous season, Liverpool managed to break into the Champions League zone and even win bronze in this championship. It is worth noting these players who significantly influenced their team’s success in recent matches:
- Alisson Becker. The Brazilian goalkeeper played a lot in many games, but he was in the best shape during the final matches. Alisson also managed to score a victorious goal and allowed Liverpool to continue the fight for a place in the Champions League.
- Roberto Firmino. The striker got his chance and took advantage of it, helping his team to have victories. This season, Sadio Mané didn’t play his best, because Jurgen Klopp decided to give Firmino more time, and in fact, he was right.
- Mohamed Salah. The Egyptian played at a high level, but he didn’t show anything extraordinary. Salah’s efforts allowed Liverpool to improve their scores and break into the top three of the English soccer championship, although there were many rumors that Mohamed might leave the team in the winter.
Also, Fabinho, Thiago Alcântara, Diogo Jota and Trent Alexander-Arnold are worth noting. If not for injuries, Liverpool would have claimed the championship, but this result can be considered successful.
