It is no surprise that the Reds are sitting merrily on the top of the 2018/19 Premier League table. They were one of the most exciting teams to watch last season and finished runners-up to Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League.
Jurgen Klopp has transformed Liverpool into one of the best sides in European football. They have made some exciting signings this summer with the likes of Alisson Becker, Naby Keita, Xherdan Shaqiri, and Fabinho.
The Reds are the biggest spending club in Premier League this summer with a total of around £177 million in player transfers. With some world-class players in their squad, the Reds are one of the heavy spenders on player wages and salaries.
Jordan Henderson, £100,000 per week
Jordan Henderson plays the role of a defensive midfielder at Liverpool. Primarily a box-to-box midfielder, Henderson works really hard in the middle of the park and brings a lot of energy to the team. The 28-year-old England international has played 284 competitive games for Liverpool so far.
Alisson Becker, £120,000 per week
He held the record as the most expensive goalkeeper in the world until it was broken by Kepa Arrizabalaga. Alisson Becker was superb for AS Roma last season and played a huge role in their run to the UEFA Champions League semifinals. He was arguably the best goalkeeper in Serie A and replaced Loris Karius as Liverpool’s no.1.
James Milner, £120,000 per week
He is the most experienced player in the Liverpool squad at the moment. James Milner has played 495 Premier League games in his career so far and scored 51 goals. The 32-year-old but can occupy several midfield positions. He is good with set-pieces and his work rate is exceptional.
Naby Keita, £120,000 per week
Daniel Sturridge, £120,000 per week
Daniel Sturridge had a bright start to his Liverpool career but faded away completely. He has scored only 17 Premier League goals in his last four seasons and made only 55 appearances. The 29-year-old forward has featured in three of four Liverpool games this season, mainly as a substitute.
Virgil van Dijk, £150,000 per week
Virgil Van Dijk is the most expensive defender in world football right now and he cost Liverpool £75 million. The 27-year-old Dutch international was exceptional for the Reds last season. He improved Liverpool’s defence and was rock solid at the back. Van Dijk currently earns a huge £150,000 per week at Liverpool.
When Salah grabbed all the headlines, the Brazilian international was phenomenal for the Reds. Roberto Firmino scored 27 goals in his 54 appearances for Liverpool last campaign. He led the line to perfection and complimented Mo Salah and Sadio Mane. His pace, close control, the ability to create opportunities for his teammates are some of his greatest attributes.
Mohamed Salah, £200,000 per week
Premier League’s best signing of the 2017 summer is Liverpool’s highest earner at the moment. Salah was sensational for the Reds last season with 44 goals in 52 appearances. He led them to the finals of the UEFA Champions League and a third-place finish in the Premier League. A technically strong player, the Egyptian is known for his speed, precise finishing, and first touch.
