Joel Matip

First up is Joel Matip – while he was an integral (and often understated) cog in Jurgen Klopp’s 2019/20 machine, he has become less important to the squad in recent seasons.

While the Cameroonian centre-half is a perfectly serviceable player, he is struggling to cope with Liverpool’s high line tactics as his career reaches its twilight.

On top of this, at £5.0, he is not cheap for a defender. Hold tight, however – Matip isn’t the only Liverpool defender you’ll be seeing on this list.
