At Anfield, one of the key factors in the team's current good performance is undoubtedly the unity that exists between the players, where, despite the high level of competition, all the players want to prove that they have the ability to win a regular starting berth. However, this does not destroy the great spirit at Anfield, where all the players seem to have a good friendly relationship.


This strengthens the team by avoiding internal problems in the squad, so the togetherness has meant that the opportunities for all are well taken.   So the value of the team is not measured individually but collectively. Although Salah is Liverpool's best player at the moment, Jürgen Klopp says Becker is just as valuable for his saves.

During this season the team has undoubtedly been led on the pitch by the Pharaoh, who is going through an extraordinary level, but Jürgen Klopp had this to say about the Brazilian goalkeeper: "I will never hide how much I love and respect this man. Mo scored his 200th goal today and, to be honest, maybe Ali got his 200th by saving our ass.

So Klopp makes it clear that the goals Salah has scored have the same value as the saves that have saved the Reds. Why Klopp is right, goals and saves should be of similar value in determining what has taken the team to the top of the Premier League. Alisson Becker has saved the Reds on countless occasions this season with saves as spectacular as the one he made against Crystal Palace.


The strength of the Anfield leaders

Although after Jordan Henderson's departure, the captain's armband was handed to Virgil Van Dijk and Trent Alexander Arnold was chosen as second captain. Despite this Mohamed Salah and Alisson Becker are two leaders without a badge on the pitch, as well as being two of the best players and two of the most experienced. So when Becker and Salah shine, Liverpool usually shine and win.
