1 of 4 The 2018 football season is upon us and it seems like every time there’s an announcement about a player’s future, there’s a chance it will be a star from the past.
But let’s not lose sight of the fact that there are also some who have risen to the occasion.
These are the guys who are still kicking, still playing and still giving their all for the club they love.
Here are the top 10 players who will be in the stands for the 2018 season.1.
Tim CahillThe England midfielder is arguably the most popular player on the team.
His absence has not only been felt by the team but his own supporters too.
Despite having one of the most famous careers in the game, Cahill has rarely seen the field.
The 22-year-old’s best years are ahead of him and there’s no doubt he’ll have an important role to play in the Reds side.2.
Andy CarrollThe midfielder has always been a key part of the team’s attack and this year he will finally get a chance to shine.
Carroll has become a key member of the Reds defence this season and will likely make an impact on Saturday.
His experience and ability to play through games will be invaluable.3.
Luis SuarezThe Uruguayan striker has been a huge influence on the Reds this season, especially during the games against the Blues and Man City.
Suarez has also scored a lot of goals this season which has earned him a spot in the top three for the most goals scored by any player in the competition.
The Uruguyan will need to continue his form to have any chance of making a big impact.4.
James MilnerMilner has been on fire this season after missing out on a Champions League spot for Liverpool.
The striker is the key player in Liverpool’s attack, and he’s been a regular in the team since arriving from Southampton.
He is still very much a work in progress and has not had a great season, but the forward will need every bit of his ability to make an immediate impact.5.
Raheem SterlingThe former Manchester United star has become the Reds most popular signing this year, and his popularity has helped the Reds to the top of the table.
The England international has been one of Liverpool’s most consistent players this season.
The 25-year old is also a fan favourite and he will be looking to continue that form to take his team to the Champions League.6.
Jordan HendersonThe young Liverpool winger has been an absolute revelation this season with his performances, and this will be his first season with the Reds.
The young winger has scored the most Liverpool goals this year and is also one of their most dependable players.
He’s been able to find the back of the net twice this season against the Reds and he is in the final years of his contract.7.
Steven GerrardThe captain of the Liverpool side has been very much one of this season’s stars, and the former England international will be hoping to continue the form he showed in his debut season.
Gerrard has scored more goals this term than any other player in England, and will need that form in the next few weeks to continue to shine at Anfield.8.
Raúl GarcíaThe Colombian has made a huge impact on Liverpool’s season so far this year after being linked with a move to Real Madrid and he’ll be looking for an equaliser to keep his place in the squad.
The former Barcelona midfielder is also the star of the squad and he has had a fantastic season so there’s very little doubt he will have an impact.9.
Luis SuárezThe Uruguaan striker has continued to score goals this campaign and has now scored four in a row.
He has also been a constant presence on the pitch and he was one of those who was always ready to help out the Reds in any way he could.10.
Joe AllenThe defender has been at the heart of Liverpool defence all season and he made his Reds debut for them against Southampton.
Allen is still a work-in-progress, but has the potential to be one of Reds best players.
