Labor costs reduced
Fighting for multiple trophies each season while keeping the payroll budget low is a tough task, but one Liverpool get along very well.
According to Companies House, the Reds’ payroll is down to this from last season.
Rather than signing several high-profile players in the summer transfer window, Liverpool have opted to be frugal in the market and focus on rewarding those internal players.
Alexander-Arnold silences doubters
Defender Trent Alexander-Arnold provided another assist for his side in Liverpool’s narrow 1-0 win over West Ham United.
His contribution in the game once again proved how valuable the England defender is for Jurgen Klopp’s system.
Now Klopp admits he was amused that questions are still being raised about his No 66’s ability to defend.
Jota decision the right one
Liverpool’s recent shrewd transfer deals have seen the side maintain their title challenges while dealing with injuries.
One of the players who has been promoted upon request is Diogo Jota.
Jota was a 2020 signing wolves and has proved a bargain even at £45million.
Defender Ki-Jana Hoever went in the opposite direction at the same time and having struggled at times lately his time at Wolves could be over.
