Bundesliga winner Jeremie Frimpong prefers Liverpool players over Arsenal stars

Bayer Leverkusen’s Jeremie Frimpong, fresh off their Bundesliga triumph, recently shared his dream XI from Premier League giants Manchester City, Liverpool, and Arsenal (h/t Goal via Youtube). Notably, the star defender included players from Liverpool and City but omitted any from Arsenal.

Frimpong played a pivotal role in Leverkusen’s historic Bundesliga victory, marking the club’s first league title in over a century. His exceptional performance throughout the season, particularly as a defender, has been noteworthy, amassing an impressive tally of 13 goals and 11 assists in 41 appearances across all competitions at just 23 years old.

In an interview with Goal, Jeremie Frimpong revealed his best XI from the Premier League’s top three clubs: Liverpool, Manchester City, and Arsenal. His selection notably leaned heavily towards Liverpool, with stars like Alisson, Van Dijk, Konate, Andy Robertson, and Salah making the cut.

Frimpong’s choices reflect his high regard for Liverpool’s talent, acknowledging the prowess of players who may not always receive as much media attention as their counterparts from Arsenal and City.
