Dominik Szoboszlai was chosen as the first player of the year, beating out Alisson Becker and Darwin Nez. Szoboszlai seems to have adapted well to life as a Liverpool midfielder under Jürgen Klopp.
The Hungarian captain started all three of Liverpool’s September games, contributing significantly to the club’s perfect 3-0 record and seven points (out of a potential nine).
Szoboszlai commented on receiving the honor, saying, “It’s a pretty fantastic feeling. Many thanks to everyone who cast a ballot in my favor. I’m simply trying to do my part for the team and be as effective as possible. I, too, was taken aback by the early start, but I appreciate the effort of the team and the leadership. Having a helpful hand makes everything simpler.
But, like I said, I’m doing everything I can to help the team, and the team comes first. My first thought was of what it would be like to play in front of the fans at Anfield and elsewhere. Always present, they are reliable. I’m thrilled to bring them pleasure.
Liverpool’s number 8 has a lot of potential, and we want to see it realized in the future. Keeping Szoboszlai healthy and helping him progress could be crucial when the season gets going, the weather becomes worse, and the games start piling up.
‘That’s what I’d do’ – Pundit names the front three Jurgen Klopp should select at Liverpool
Lee Dixon has “got a thing” for Darwin Nunez and has suggested that Jurgen Klopp start Liverpool with the same front three that he uses.
The Uruguayan came in as a second-half replacement for Klopp’s Reds on Saturday at Molineux, where they overcame a one-goal deficit to defeat Gary O’Neil’s Wolves and collect all three points.
Our No. 9 has been a divisive figure since his summer 2017 transfer from Benfica, but there is no denying the chaos he causes for opposing defenses and the dаnger he poses every time he touches the ball.
I have a crush on Nunez and I think he has great potential. I do. Dixon said to NBC Sports (via The Boot Room), “I like Gakpo as well.” I’m a fan of Diaz as well. That’s my recommendation for Diaz, Nunez, and Salah. But in order to make a nice side dish, you need to be able to switch things up.The combination of Nunez, Luis Diaz, and Mo Salah in the starting lineup is terrifying due to their incredible speed and skill.
If Klopp remаins with his traditional 4-3-3 formation, Diogo Jota and Cody Gakpo will have to settle for bench roles, but we’ll need a strong bench to compete on all fronts this season.
The Uruguayan international has proven himself to be a useful substitute this season, but you get the sense that he won’t settle into a consistent role until he gets more game time at the beginning of matches.
We’ll have to see what kind of lineup Jurgen Klopp chooses in Austria for Thursday’s Europa League match against LASK, with the former Almeria forward hoping to make the cut.
