Liverpool have a world-class player in the form of Mohammed Salah. The Egyptian has had twenty goal contributions this season, scoring thirteen and assisting seven. In previous years, Salah has played a crucial part in this Liverpool team and their play style. Salah will be looking to finish the season strong and help Liverpool push for European football.
Liverpool also have English right-back, Trent Alexander Arnold. He is superb in an attacking sense but needs improvements on the defensive side of his game to be considered one of the best in the world. Although Trent and Liverpool are struggling this season, he has managed three Premier League assists. Last season, Trent registered twelve Premier League assists. He has proven that he can be a world-class player but is struggling to showcase his talents this season.
Leeds United’s key man this season has been Rodrigo Moreno. The Spaniard has scored a decent eleven goals this season. Rodrigo has just returned after having ankle surgery, which has seen him on the sidelines for two months. In the Summer of 2020, Rodrigo signed for Leeds for £27m from Spanish side Valencia.
