Liverpool: Grading all 24 members of Premier League-winning squad out of 10

Sadio Mane, Jordan Henderson & Alisson Becker have all been graded out of 10

Liverpool are Premier League champions.

It's the first time in 30 years that the Reds have secured English football's biggest prize and they've achieve the feat in remarkable fashion.

Jurgen Klopp's side have dominated the Premier League in 2019/20. Only Manchester United, Everton and Watford have taken points off of Liverpool so far this season.

As a team, they possess no weaknesses and it's hard to envisage any team - even Pep Guardiola's Manchester City - toppling them in the foreseeable future.

To honour Klopp's incredible Liverpool team, we've decided to grade all 24 players who have played for the Reds in the Premier League this season out of 10.

Three players have been prestigiously rewarded the full 10!

Alisson Becker - 9.5/10

Where would Liverpool be without their Brazilian goalkeeping colossus? He's probably the best in the world right now and the Reds just aren't the same team without him.

Adrian - 5/10

When Alisson was injured early in the season, Adrian deputised admirably - aside from that mistake against Southampton. But when he's been called upon since, the Spaniard has looked rather shaky, hence why we've only given him a five.

Trent Alexander-Arnold - 10/10

The best right-back in the world has taken his game to scary new heights this season. His performance away at Leicester is one of the best from a full-back in Premier League history and without him, Liverpool would not have been the same animal in 2019/20.

Virgil van Dijk - 9.5/10

We feel harsh not administering another maximum rating here, we really do. But has Van Dijk matched the ridiculous standards he set in 2018/19? Not quite, but he's still the best centre-back in world football.

Joel Matip - 7/10

Had Matip stayed fit and maintained his early season form, he would have been a shoe-in for an 8/10 minimum. But the Cameroonian's proneness to injury means he simply cannot nail down the spot next to Van Dijk permanently.

Joe Gomez - 9/10

It's simple, when Gomez and Van Dijk play together, Liverpool's defence is impregnable. His return to the starting lineup in December saw the Reds keep a clean sheet in seven straight Premier League matches. What a season it's been for the Englishman.

Dejan Lovren - 4/10

Poor ol' Dejan, he tries bless him. But once again, the Croatian international has proved in 2019/20 that he's simply not good enough for Liverpool Football Club and it's almost sad watching opposing attackers target the poor lad. We're arguably being too kind with our rating.

Andrew Robertson - 8.5/10

Not quite at the level of his partner-in-crime, Alexander-Arnold this season, but Robertson has still been far and away the best left-back in the league. The Scotsman's presence down the left is a vital cog in Klopp's perfectly-oiled machine.

Fabinho - 7.5/10

Prior to picking up a serious injury, Fabinho was a pure Rolls-Royce at the base of Liverpool's midfield. But post-injury, the Brazilian has struggled to a degree, which is only natural. Nevertheless, it's been a solid campaign from the former Monaco man and his individual performance against Crystal Palace was one of the Reds' best of the season.

Jordan Henderson - 10/10

Captain Fantastic and the best midfielder in the Premier League by some distance in 2019/20. Henderson has been the driving force behind the title charge with not only his leadership, but his brilliance on the pitch. His improvement over the past two years is scarcely believable.

Naby Keita - 5/10

You start to get the feeling that it's just not going to happen for Keita at Liverpool. Every time he begins to find his form, injury strikes and 2019/20 has been nothing short of a nightmare for the Guinean.

Georginio Wijnaldum - 8/10

Another top season from one of the best ball-carrying midfielders in world football. Wijnaldum's contribution in both defence and attack is invaluable to this Liverpool team and Keita is going to find it mighty difficult to displace the Dutchman from the starting XI on a regular basis.

Adam Lallana - 5/10

His goal away against Manchester United was the undoubted highlight of another sub-par season from Lallana. It's been a shame how his Liverpool career has declined in recent years and it's likely he'll leave the club in the summer - despite Klopp being a big fan of his.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain - 6/10

Chamberlain has finally shown positive signs of recovering from his injury nightmare this season. He's still got a way to go, but it's looking promising, especially given the fact he's thrived in multiple positions in 2019/20.

James Milner - 6.5/10

Far from his best season with the Reds, but Milner has certainly filled in at crucial times throughout the campaign. His age does seem to be catching up with him a tad, but no one can deny his importance to this Liverpool team.

Takumi Minamino - 5/10

It's been a tough adjustment period for the Japanese international, but it was always going to be. After all, how can anyone joining the best team on the planet right now expect to receive adequate game time? But Minamino has at least shown in sporadic bursts what he can add to this Liverpool side.

Xherdan Shaqiri - 4/10

Remember when Shaq was a bargain? Things change at a rapid pace in professional football. Injuries have wreaked havoc on the Swiss international's season and his days at Liverpool are certainly numbered.

Mohamed Salah - 8.5/10

Another top season from one of the best players on the planet. Salah's partnership with Alexander-Arnold is one of the most devastating in the world and once again, he's near the top of the Premier League's goal-scoring chart. However, you almost expect more from the Egyptian these days given his past achievements which does sound slightly harsh, we know.

Roberto Firmino - 7/10

He's struggled scoring at Anfield this season, but the Brazilian's importance to the team is still evident for everyone to see. However, Firmino hasn't really come close to matching his 2018/19 form this season, which is why he's only picking up a seven from us.

Divock Origi - 5/10

The man for the big moment in 2018/19, but the Belgian's influence over proceedings has waned this time around. Origi has only managed three goals in the Premier League which, despite his limited minutes on the pitch, is simply not good enough.

Sadio Mane - 10/10

What else can we say about Mane, eh? The guy is just a genius. The thought of lining up against the Senegalese winger as an opposing full-back must be absolutely terrifying. The 2017/18 season belonged to Salah and now, the 2019/20 one belongs to Mane.

Curtis Jones - n/a

Yet to make his mark in the Premier League, but the future looks bright for the Liverpool-born forward. Don't worry, Curtis, we won't forget that goal against Everton in the FA Cup in a hurry!

Harvey Elliot - n/a

The 17-year-old is already a fan-favourite and surely it won't be too long until he's challenging the established stars for a place in Klopp's starting XI.

Neco Williams - n/a

Williams made his Premier League debut against Crystal Palace and looks like he could be a very dependable back-up to Alexander-Arnold in the years to come.

With exciting youngsters coming through, key players approaching their prime years and a mental togetherness unmatched across the world, this Liverpool team is here to stay at the top.

Enjoy the celebrations, lads!
