Sky Sports pundits Jamie Carragher and Gary Neville have actually named 6 Liverpool players in their combined Group of 2020, following an exceptional year on Merseyside.

While it has been a strange year all round, 2020 has been a huge one for the Reds, having actually won the Premier League for the first time – a very first top-flight title in 30 years.

A collective effort, there has not been one standout player among Jurgen Klopp’s squad, rather a wide variety of first-rate talents who have all played their part in restoring the club to the peak of football.

Hair was arguably Liverpool’s Gamer of the Season in 2019/20 – despite Salah ending the project with another objective and assist than the No. 10 – producing a run of unstoppable form on the left.

Neville used the numbers to discuss why Child was picked over Mane, while Carragher pointed to a “little spell” of soft type as he contributed to that.

” You can not criticise Child or Hair. There is no unfavorable about them. They are both absolutely first-rate,” Neville stated.

” Every club worldwide would want Child or Mane playing for them – Barcelona, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United, every club in the world desire those two gamers.

” Just plug the real objectives and assists in, and Son’s just done better in a group that isn’t as great clearly. Boy simply won it but that is no reflection on Hair. He might’ve easily remained in the group.”

While it is just the viewpoint of 2 undoubtedly educated ex-pros, this XI is a reflection of the impressive kind of Klopp’s Liverpool throughout 2020.

To be able to bring that from a title-winning season through to a table-topping start to the next is a testament to their quality and mindset, and it would be not a surprise to see a similar variety of Liverpool players called in the very same XI this time next year.
