Previously linked to Liverpool, CB Dayot Upamecano ended up sealing a move to Bayern Munich in the wake of a string of impressive showings.
Liverpool’s backline is staring at the barrel currently but it’s the attacking threat this trio carries that sees us repose faith in it. We are earmarking Trent Alexander-Arnold who has the two assists, Andrew Robertson with the five assists and Fabinho from the club’s backline.

Striker Yussuf Poulsen has popped up with the one goal for RB Leipzig to see him and two assist man, Christopher Nkunku comprise of the duo from the team.
Liverpool on the other hand as ever see us once again opt for Mohamed Salah who has scripted together the three goals and an assist for the side.
