Liverpool did not have an excellent season but finished third against all odds. Injuries in crucial positions halted their campaign. For example, Van Dijk missed the better part of the season and even missed this summer’s Euro games.

It’s no surprise that many fans were truly on the edge of their seats for all those exciting and dramatic moments. However it’s important to also think about your own safety during football season.

It was indeed a tough season that saw only eight players selected for the tournament. Unfortunately, Alexander-Arnold was injured before the tournament began and had to be replaced. Here we take a look at how the remaining seven have performed so far. Let’s get started;

Xherdan Shaqiri

Xherdan endured a relatively difficult season at Liverpool, managing only seven starts across all competitions. He featured in 15 other games from the bench. He only managed two assists across all competitions from those games, something that may have negatively impacted his campaign.

Despite failing to perform as expected at club level, Xherdan is crucial and one of the main attacking forces of Switzerland. It was predicted that he was likely to perform well, but he has instead performed better, surpassing those expectations.

Switzerland is in the quarter-finals facing tough opponents, Spain, but they must be happy for this far they have come. Xherdan has started in all Switzerland’ games and performed well. 

In the opening match, He assisted a goal to help his team draw against wales. They lost the next game against Italy but won their final game against Turkey, where Xherdan scored twice. He also played a great game against France in the round of 16, although he did not score.

Generally, Xherdan has had an outstanding Euro campaign than any other Liverpool player.

Diogo Jota

Diogo’s move to Liverpool from Wolves came from nowhere. He had an outstanding campaign, scoring 13 goals in 30 appearances. For a debut campaign, that was an excellent performance. He started in nineteen games and came off the bench in eleven others across all competitions.

Diogo came close to reaching a goal-a-game ratio before his campaign was cut short by an injury. His average rating for the season is 8, and he is likely to do better in the next season.

In the Euro 2020, Diogo was part of the Portuguese side that was suddenly eliminated in the round of 16 against Belgium. Diogo, as an individual, had an excellent tournament scoring one and assisting another against Germany in the group stages. Despite being eliminated earlier than they expected, Diogo is undoubtedly heading to a field head high.

Jordan Henderson

Henderson was pivotal during the beginning of the season, but an injury curtailed his campaign. The England international played on the top level for the better part of the season despite looking like a century since he played. 

He had memorable moments during the season. For example, when he was robbed of a last-minute winner against Everton at Goodison Park. His level continued flourishing until he was called to represent England in the summer Euro games.

Henderson has not had an exciting tournament as expected, but he has done well in the minutes he has played. England is facing Ukraine in the quarter-finals, and Henderson is in contention to start. During the first two games, he was not fit but featured in the final two games that saw them proceed to the quarter-finals. He is likely to get more minutes as the tournament proceeds.

Thiago Alcantara

Thiago had a fantastic season like the one he had with Bayern before signing for Liverpool. The midfield player has excellent passing ability in between tight spaces. He is also good at cooling the tempo and making critical decisions in the final third of the field.

During the campaign, especially towards the end of the season, Thiago was the man of the match in most matches and came close to many. He was called into the Spain national team, and he is among the few experienced players alongside Sergio Busquets in the group.

In the tournament, Thiago played in two of the four games before Spain qualified for that quarter-finals. Thiago showed his class during the two matches with master class passing skills. He is in contention to start in the quarter against Switzerland.

Andy Robertson

Robertson had an outstanding season despite having ups and downs. He has been an outstanding starter as a left-back and did have a significant influence in most games. Jurgen Klopp handed him forty-eight starts and two off the bench across all competitions.

In those games, he managed to assist seven times which is excellent for a left-back. He mainly had a good run towards the end of the season, where he showed leadership skills. Even though Liverpool did not have an excellent season, Robertson was happy with the campaign.

He was called to represent Scotland in this summer’s Euro games, where he also performed well. Scotland is an average team and was eliminated in the group stages, but Robertson played pretty well. For example, he had a great match against England.

Neco Williams

Neco William only managed fourteen games in the Liverpool shirt, starting only nine and coming off the bench five times. He is currently the second choice right-back for Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool. His average rating of the season stands at 5.33.

Even after enduring a significantly difficult season, Neco was called by Ryan Giggs, Wales National team head coach, alongside Harry Wilson. Despite starting in only a single game, Williams played three of the four games before they were eliminated in the round of 16.

Even after being eliminated, it was a better tournament for the teenager. As the world cup approaches, Williams is likely to get more playing time.

Harry Wilson

Harry was not majorly part of Jurgen Klopp’s plans during the last campaign but featured in a few games. However, Harry has the potential to redeem himself in the coming campaign. Despite not featuring in most of Liverpool’s games, Harry was called by Ryan Giggs to represent Wales alongside Neco Williams.

Wales is an average team but has done well previously. Although they were eliminated in the round of 16, Harry played three of the four games available. As the world cup approaches, Harry is in contention to get more minutes.


Despite having a difficult campaign, Liverpool managed to qualify for the champions league. They looked more resilient during the last matches and had to finish third in the final match. Next season may look different, with most players expected back from injuries.
