3 Players Who Stood-out For Liverpool In Another Mediocre Season

This year was touted as the year of rebuilding for the Merseyside club with a manager who is both young in age and at heart trying to establish a theory. The results have been mixed though with Liverpool playing some impressive football but being alarmingly inconsistent and thus getting knocked out of all the title races. If things do not take a dramatic turn, then they should finish seventh in the league, below rival Everton. So with the season coming nearer to a close, we try and find out Liverpool’s player of the season, a player who has impressed a bit more than the others.

Luis Suarez

1)    Luis Suarez– The PFA player of the year award was almost certain for him, but then he bit off more than he could chew and ended up being booed by the guests of the award. But that does not take away the fact that this Uruguayan striker has been marvellous for the club and has almost singlehandedly kept the club floating in the top half of the league. He is the second highest goal scorer of the league at 23 and has made 10 assists. Before January, he was the club’s sole front-man and more often than not delivered for his manager. After the acquisition of Sturridge from Chelsea, his partnership with him has a treat to watch and has produced a number of goals. It will be a shame if the striker is forced to leave Liverpool at the end of the season as a result of his ten game ban and can definitely be a primary arsenal in Liverpool’s weaponry next season.

2)    Steven Gerrard– Liverpool’s captain and their anchorman in the midfield was substituted for the first time this season last week against Newcastle. Gerrard has certainly rediscovered himself this season scoring 10 times and making 12 assists, only fourth in the league. He has epitomised what true leadership symbolises and albeit standing on the wrong side of 30, is vital for Liverpool’s development for seasons to come.

3)    Phillippe Coutinho– It is quite to strange to think that a player who has played just 10 matches features on our list, but such has been the effect of the Brazilian. The January signing has worked wonders for Rodgers and in this little time has shown enough promise to be relied with spearheading the attack in times to come. With his short frame and agility he has made his way past among defenders of all ranks, scoring two and creating another five in such a limited span. Coutinho is definitely the boy to look forward to in future.
