Liverpool players unexpectedly dominate the Premier League team of the day’s match – while Manchester United’s chosen one sparked controversy among the fans.
The BBC show put the team to public vote, with supporters choosing seven of Jurgen Klopp’s allegations along with two from Manchester City, one from United and Leicester.
Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson has been voted the season’s player so far, having headed the Reds on the verge of ending their drought for thirty years, with his mentor Jurgen Klopp getting the nod as manager.
Trent Alexander-Arnold is the choice of fans as the young player of the season, and aligns with his teammates Alisson, Andy Robertson and Virgil van Dijk in a Reds dominated rearguard, with Leicester’s Caglar Soyuncu the other central defender .
Mo Salah, Sadio Mane are in the front row next to Sergio Aguero of the City – but he is in midfield where a selection has backed up some fans.
Next to Henderson, few would argue with the selection of director City de Kevin de Bruyne, who leads the Premier League standings this season with 12 (Alexander-Arnold is the next 12).
The other player he voted with is United star Bruno Fernandes, who has revitalized the Red Devils since arriving from Sporting Lisbon in January, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team unbeaten by him on the team.
While his impact on United’s form has been undeniable, some Liverpool fans have pointed out that he has only played nine games for his new club – and only five of them have been league games.
While the outcome was decided by a vote, other players that fans suggested might have taken his place include Liverpool’s Georginio Wijnaldum, Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish, Leicester star James Maddison and Chelsea ace Mason Mount.
A Liverpool fan said: “Completely disagree with the addition of Bruno Fernandes. Several players who have been better all season. Grealish. Maddinson. Wijnaldum. Those 3 have been better. Probably more than I miss. The rest of the team is nailed. “
Another said: “Fernandes ?? Seriously ?? It’s as bad as Pogba joined TOT last year! Much better players this season than he in that position, such as Fleck, Norwood and Sheff Utd’s Lundstrum and Mason Mount of Chelsea. quote Gini, Fabinho and Ox for us. What a joke. “
Fans also voted wolf wing Adama Traore as a surprise package, Sheffield United’s Red Devils loan holder Dean Henderson as the season’s signature, and Tottenham ace Son-Heung’s incredible solo hit Min against Burnley as the goal of the season.
Meanwhile, Watford’s 3-0 win over Liverpool, which ended the surprising unbeaten Reds streak lasting more than a year, has been voted as the time of the season.
