Captain and Vice-Captain options:
Roberto Firmino: A striker of his own unique traits. Asks Jurgen Klopp, or any of his teammates, all will sings songs about the impact he has on this team. The Brazilian is a huge part of Klopp’s pressing system with the manager himself hailing Firmino as his team’s first line of defence.
The 27-year-old is already up and running for the season and will be looking to add more goals to his tally.
Sadio Mane: The goal against Southampton was a truly world-class strike. It came out of nowhere, in fact against the run of the play. But that’s Liverpool, so much talent that it takes only a moment to turn the tide.
The Senegalese is a trump card for Klopp who, more often than not, weaves his magic when he situation demands.
Mohamed Salah: No need to mention the Egyptian King here. He topped the goal scoring charts for Liverpool in the last two years and is already up and running for the season with three goals in three games, including two against Arsenal last weekend.
Ashley Barnes: The 29-year-old has made an incredible start to the new season, scoring goals in every league game heaidng into this matahc.
With a lot of wind in his sails, the 29-year-old will be very hard to stop in front of his own fans.
