With their blistering season going from strength to strength, it is no surprise that Liverpool is standing in line to dominate the 2019/20 Team-of-the-year procedures.
The side of Jurgen Klopp has broken records every month and is sure to win a whole series of prizes at the end of the season.
With the season entering the home game, voting will soon begin to determine who is above their peers for the honor of the last players.
It is indeed more than possible that Liverpool will take an incredible 10 out of 11 places in the PFA Team of the Year.
Liverpool is on track to break PFA records and dominate the positions of the Team of the Year
Virgil van Dijk is a certainty in the middle after another strong campaign with the Reds
Jurgen Klopp has turned Liverpool into an unstoppable force and is ready to end the title
In such a scenario, the Reds would beat a record set by bitter rivals Manchester United.
After completing the 2006/07 season, Sir Alex Ferguson swept the team and took eight of the 11 places in the team, including a clean sweep of the defense.
Only Steven Gerrard from Liverpool, Didier Drogba from Chelsea and Dimitar Berbatov from Tottenham managed to make their way to the settlement.
That season, Edwin van der Sar, Rio Ferdinand, Nemanja Vidic, Patrice Evra, Gary Neville, Paul Scholes, Cristiano Ronaldo and Ryan Giggs flew the flag for the red side of Manchester.
This time Liverpool is about to go even better than United and secure every spot.
CURRENT RECORD FOR MOST PLAYERS IN PFA TEAM OF THE YEAR – 8
In the Premier League era, Sir Alex Ferguson made the Manchester United side of the 2006/07 season the record for most players in the PFA Team of the Year.
Edwin van der Sar, Rio Ferdinand, Nemanja Vidic, Patrice Evra, Gary Neville, Paul Scholes, Cristiano Ronaldo and Ryan Giggs each played after a campaign full of silverware.
Yashin Trophy winner Alisson Becker will replace Brazilian countryman Ederson, who last season played as goalkeeper for the Team of the Year.
Despite missing a large part of the opening weeks of the season due to injuries, Alisson continues to fight to defend his Golden Glove title against the final run and has the cleanest sheets.
Dean Henderson of Sheffield United will also be in the race after his very impressive spell on loan with the knives of Chris Wilder. The United youngster has nine clean sheets to his name so far.
Despite the absence of the start of the season, Alisson is on track to keep the Golden Gloves
Last season, both Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson went to full-back positions and this time did not perform better, despite a great season for Ricardo Pereira of Leicester.
Everyone must retain their place, while reigning PFA player Virgil van Dijk of the year is nailed to take a centerback berth.
Although he had time for the Liverpool team, Joe Gomez is now one of their best artists
Next to him will be an interesting one. Both Joel Matip and Joe Gomez performed exceptionally well during this period, although they all endured spells from the team.
Gomez started the season difficult with form and fitness problems, but has now come out of the shade. He is perhaps the best-performing central defender of the competition at the moment, and a shoo-in for Gareth Southgate’s Euro 2020 team.
Because Aymeric Laporte of Manchester City is seriously injured, probably only Leicester’s Caglar Soyuncu and Jonny Evans offer opposition to Gomez.
The defending unit of Sheffield United is highly regarded, rather than any player. It all means that Gomez’s solid defensive base with Van Dijk will be difficult to vote against.
Caglar Soyuncu has settled in English football and is a breakout star for Leicester City
The breaking of the Liverpool stronghold is planned for Kevin De Bruyne, who will almost certainly help the skipper in Anfield, Jordan Henderson, in midfield of the PFA team.
Henderson is currently the favorite to win the Player of the Year prize, after his unwavering form in the heart of Jurgen Klopp’s red machine.
Kevin De Bruyne from Man City seems to be the only man to break the stranglehold of Liverpool
Ballon d’Or-nominated Georginio Wijnaldum takes the next most consistent performer on Merseyside and is tipped to rank in midfield three.
The Dutchman played all but one of all 25 Liverpool games and scored twice along the way. Wijnaldum’s statistics on balancing and restoring are among elite players of the competition, with the former Newcastle man performing much earlier in the absence of Fabinho earlier in the campaign.
External candidates who want to claim a place in the side too late are Jack Grealish and Leicester City-younger James Maddison from Aston Villa.
Klopp will be proud of his productive forward line and is preparing for the best of the Premier League.
If Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane each get the nod as expected, then it’s the first time in Premier League history that a universal club front has dominated three.
Blackburn almost succeeded in the 1994/95 season, when Alan Shearer and Chris Sutton played alongside Jurgen Klinsmann of Tottenham. Last season, Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling worked together in a front three by Mane.
Sergio Aguero has been his usual brilliant self and will be a consideration for the final XI
Cases could be made for both Leicester’s Jamie Vardy, who is the league’s top scorer this season with 17 so far, and City’s Sergio Aguero, who has 16 to his credit with the remarkable average of a goal spent every 73 minutes on the field .
Former Liverpool man Danny Ings may also feel hard done by being overlooked and continuing his mercurial form. The 27-year-old has 14 goals so far and is tipped to make the Euro 2020 team from Gareth Southgate.
Marcus Rashford and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang also excelled in largely disappointing (and to say the least) teams from Manchester United and Arsenal respectively.
Jamie Vardy has turned back the years in Leicester and looks sharper than ever before
An emerging talent this season in Adama Traore has caught the attention of the entire division and the European elite.
An attacker’s juggernaut tears trees for Wolves while competing on both a domestic and a Europa League front. A slow start to the season saw Traore suddenly burst into shape, with the 24-year-old now having four league goals and seven assists in 24 appearances.
But it is the all-round excellence and tireless working speed of Liverpool’s front three that stands out, with Salah and Mane scoring six assists so far and Firmino even better.
Adama Traore came to life with Wolves this season and was sometimes unplayable
Voting for the team will begin in the coming weeks and will continue throughout the spring.
