Liverpool have been absolutely brilliant in the Premier League this season. Our side is sitting comfortably at the top of the league standings, with a near-unassailable 25-point lead over second-placed Manchester City.
Jurgen Klopp’s brigade have been nearly unstoppable this term, having lost just one game throughout their league campaign. Our entire team has been performing at the top level, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that almost half of Alan Shearer’s Team of the Season consists of our players (h/t Mirror).
Three of the four defenders in the former Newcastle United striker’s team are from Liverpool, with full-backs Trent Alexander-Arnold, Andrew Robertson and our mainstay Virgil van Dijk getting the nod. The final defensive slot falls to Leicester City’s Jonny Evans (h/t Mirror).
Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson also gets picked in Shearer’s Team of the Season, partnering alongside Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne in the middle of the park (h/t Mirror).
The final Liverpool player to get picked is Sadio Mane. The Senegalese speedster has been brilliant once again for us, with Shearer describing him as “unplayable” (h/t Mirror).
Sergio Aguero, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Jamie Vardy make up the rest of the attack in Shearer’s unusual 4-2-4 formation (h/t Mirror).

The big surprise though is the exclusion of Alisson Becker and Mohamed Salah. The Brazilian goalkeeper has kept the most number of clean sheets this season, but is overlooked for the goalkeeping spot in favour of Sheffield United’s Dean Henderson (h/t Mirror).
Salah, despite having scored 16 Premier League goals, does not make it to the side. The Premier League is currently suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic. Liverpool need only two wins to lift the title, but it remains to be seen if and when the season resumes.
