This has truly been a mixed season for Liverpool. On one hand they have finished seventh in the league behind cross town rivals Everton without any remarkable performance in the cup and on the other hand they have played some wonderful football at times and showed a lot of progress under their manager Brendan Rodgers. Thus the fans and the board feels that although the results have not shown this year, Liverpool are a team to look forward to in the future and once the team get used to the philosophy of Rodgers, Liverpool will be a side to beat. But there have been some wonderful performers for them this season and we take down three such stupendous performers.
Can there be any doubt on his name? Suarez has been the man to carry the team on his shoulder right throughout the season and if not for him they would have been fighting relegation. He has scored 23 goals for the team and was one of the frontrunner of the PFA Player of the year award and the golden ball, if not for the bitegate. If Liverpool are to progress further in the coming seasons, they must hold on to Suarez and despite his knack of giving problems at times, he is a real gem of a player.
The captain has led from the front once again. The names Gerrard and Liverpool have become sort of synonymous and once again he has been an inspiration for the team with his performance. His tally of 10 goals and 12 assists speak of the immense impact he had on the team this season and Liverpool must look to capitalise the form of their veteran performer to the fullest in the next couple of seasons.
The mere fact that a player who joined the team in January is in the list speaks volumes. Nobody expected Coutinho to have so much impact on the team, but then when these kinds of surprises happen, the fans do love it. In his debut six months he has been involved in 10 goals, scoring three and assisting a further seven. If Liverpool are to become a powerhouse of English football again, this is the man they must look upto.
