Liverpool FC Squad 2018-2019 – First Team 2018-19
Liverpool FC new player in and out 2018-19. Here is the Liverpool FC Squad 2018-19. The January transfer window 2018 is closed and the Summer transfer window 2018 is here and we have the full Liverpool transfers list 2018 with all Liverpool new player signings 2018/19.
Liverpool had a very good 2017/18 by their recent standards. For just the third time in 7 seasons, the Reds finished in the top 4 of the Premier League and qualified for Champions League football next season. This is a fantastic achievement for Jurgen Klopp and his team, who finished 8th in the league the season before, and had a positive ‘net spent’ in the summer. The Reds also reached the Champions League final in 2017/18 but lost to Real Madrid. Liverpool gained praise from everywhere for their ‘heavy metal’ style of football which involves a lot of pressing and counter-pressing, along with possession.
Liverpool FC Squad Targets 2018/19
In the 2018/19 season, Liverpool will look to perhaps challenge for the league title, as well as get through to the knockout stages of the Champions League. This could prove difficult to do both if they don’t make quite a few signings this summer. Last summer, they bought some quality players such as Sadio Mane and Georginio Wijnaldum. However, they sold a lot of players and as a result were left quite thin as a squad once a few injuries hit the squad. This is something they must look to improve upon if they are to compete both domestically and in the Champions League in the 2017/18 season.
They have made some big money signings last season including signing Virgil Van Dijk from Southampton, a commanding central defender. They have also signed Naby Keita, from RB Leipzig, and Mohammed Salah, from AS Roma who has done a fantastic job for Liverpool this season as well. All of these players would be great additions to Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool team.
This summer in 2018, Liverpool have signed some great players. Klopp signed Fabinho from Monaco which was quite the coup for the club. Additionally they have Naby Keita ready to play this season, so they will have a stacked midfield.
Some of the new Liverpool players signed 2018 are well paid. Take a look at our list with Liverpool Players Salaries 2018 and you will see the who the highest paid Liverpool Players are during the 2017-18 season.
Liverpool FC Squad First Team 2018-19
The Liverpool FC squad 2018-19 season will consist of these players. Below you will find all Liverpool goalkeepers, defenders, midfielders and forwards.
Liverpool squad 2018/19 – all Liverpool goalkeepers 2019
Here are all Liverpool First team goalkeepers 2018/19:
- Alisson Becker
- Simon Mignolet
Liverpool signed Alisson Becker from AS Roma for a world record fee of £68.6 million. The main goalkeeper at Liverpool FC was Simon Mignolet, however he was dropped at the beginning of last season for German keeper Loris Karius. Karius made some outstanding saves in the back-end of the season which went towards Liverpool securing a top 4 place and a spot in the Champions League next season. However, Karius made a few huge errors in the loss to Real Madrid in the Champions League final, which has led manager Jurgen Klopp to send him on loan to Besiktas. Liverpool signed Alisson Becker from AS Roma for a world record fee for a goalkeeper of £67 million.
Liverpool squad 2018/19 – all Liverpool defenders 2019
Here are all Liverpool First team defenders 2018/19:
- Dejan Lovren
- Joe Gomez
- Alberto Moreno
- Andrew Robertson
- Joel Matip
- Trent Alexander-Arnold
- Virgil Van Dijk
Some have had a lot more time on the pitch than others. Liverpool have signed a very good full-back in Andrew Robertson while Gomez is still young and has been a revelation for Liverpool this season.
The Reds signed Estonia captain Ragnar Klavan last summer for £4.7million, he came in as defensive cover for Joel Matip and Dejan Lovren, who proved to be Klopp’s first-choice centre-back pairing this season. In the summer of 2017, Klopp has signed young left-back Andrew Robertson, from Hull City. The defender was signed to compete with Alberto Moreno and James Milner for the role.
The big signing has been Virgil Van Dijk from Southampton. He could well be important for the Reds in the coming seasons.
Liverpool squad 2018/19 – all Liverpool midfielders 2019
Here are all Liverpool First team midfielders 2018/19:
- Georgino Wijnaldum
- James Milner
- Jordan Henderson
- Adam Lallana
- Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain
- Naby Keita
The big addition to Liverpool’s midfield this summer is the £43 million purchase of Fabinho from Monaco. He will be a huge player for the Reds. The captain, Jordan Henderson, had a great World Cup for England so it will be interesting to see if he keeps his place in the starting line-up. Meanwhile, Naby Keita will try to fill the role that Emre Can did at Liverpool as a box-to-box midfielder. Emre Can left Liverpool this summer to Juventus.
Liverpool sold Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona in January 2018 for big money but have yet to replace him. The Reds also signed Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain from Arsenal late in the window, who will add creativity and versatility to Jurgen Klopp’s team.
Liverpool squad 2018/19 – all Liverpool forwards 2019
Here are all Liverpool First team forwards 2018/19:
- Roberto Firmino
- Mohamed Salah
- Sadio Mané
- Xherdan Shaqiri
- Daniel Sturridge
- Divock Origi
As you can see, the Liverpool FC First team 2018/19 forwards are in this list. All the strikers had a part to play in the past season, but it is clear to everyone that some have been more important than others. Roberto Firmino in particular has really stepped up to the plate recently, and was rewarded with the #9 shirt for the current campaign. This summer, Liverpool signed Xherdan Shaqiri from Stoke City for a bargain price of £13 million. He should be a great option for Klopp if Mane and Salah can’t infiltrate opposition defence.
After a 9 month spell on the sidelines, Danny Ings returned from injury. However, he has been left to join Southampton this summer. Sadio Mané has been the star man in attack, and his importance to the team was really highlighted in January when the team’s form suffered during his time at the AFCON.
Liverpool‘s other forward signing, Mo Salah, has possibly been the signing of the season though after scoring 21 goals in the Premier League so far. Dominic Solanke, who was signed last season, has left Anfield to join Bournemouth in the January transfer window.
