Alisson’s arrival at Anfield will expected to finally solve their long-standing goalkeeping crisis which has seen both Simon Mignolet and Loris Karius heavily criticised.

The Brazilian was signed from Roma after the Reds forked out a world-record fee for a goalkeeper and the move has whetted the appetites of Reds fans.

Alisson has built up a reputation as one of the best goalkeepers in Europe, with his distribution one of his best attributes.

The Brazilian will cost £4m in this year’s game, representing one of the most expensive goalkeepers in the game.

Alisson’s price-tag might be steep, however you would expect him to repay that with clean-sheets in front of an ever-improving Liverpool defence.

The Dutchman is a towering leader at the heart of the Red’s defence

Van Dijk is set to be the main defensive lynch-pin in a now formidable looking Liverpool side.

The Dutchman arrived from Southampton in January for a world-record transfer fee for a defender and his impact was felt immediately.

The 27-year-old added much needed defensive steel and left Reds fans regretting that he wasn’t their player for the whole season.

At just £4m, the towering defender is a must have for your Dream Team this season.

Van Dijk’s immense aerial presence makes him a real goal-threat from set-pieces, and he is also now more likely to keep clean-sheets with Alisson behind him.

Liverpool’s favourable start to the season will also play a part in van Dijk’s potential to keep clean-sheets right from the start.

3 Naby Keita – £3m

The new arrival is expected to thrive at Anfield

Liverpool fans have been made to wait to see Keita in action, after a transfer which was agreed last year, became permanent this summer.

The Guinea midfielder is expected to cope with the demands of the Premier League and continue the impressive form that led to him becoming one of Europe’s most sought-after talents.

Keita will slot straight into Klopp’s starting eleven, with the 23-year-old set to be given license to express himself in midfield alongside fellow new arrival Fabinho.

The former Leipzig man has taken the No8 shirt at Anfield which was previously held by the club’s former talisman Steven Gerrard.

Keita is priced up at a modest £3m in this year’s game and represents an enticing prospect for Dream Team managers, as he is likely to be the source of many goals or assists this season.

4 Roberto Firmino – £6m

The Brazilian has become one of Liverpool’s most important players

Firmino’s excellent season went somewhat under the radar due to the brilliance of Mohamed Salah.

Nevertheless, the Brazilian was arguably just as important to Liverpool, scoring 15 goals and chipping in with seven assists last season.

The 26-year-old was the glue that held Klopp’s deadly attacking trident together, with four star man awards contributing to his impressive 280 points in fantasy football.

Firmino will cost Dream Team managers £6m in this year’s game, which is a relative steal considering what he will almost certainly bring to your fantasy football team this season.

5 Mohamed Salah – £8m

Can the Egyptian replicate his form from last season?

Can the Egyptian replicate his form from last season?

We teased you by leaving him until the very last.

Salah is fit and raring to go after he fully recovered from the shoulder injury that he sustained in last season’s Champions League final.

Before his season suffered a disastrous conclusion, the Egyptian was a revelation in his first year back in English football.

The 26-year-old scored 32 Premier League goals for Klopp’s side, which helped him to pick up a monumental 412 points in fantasy football, the most of any player.

The Egyptian is the joint most expensive player in this season’s game, alongside Spurs striker Harry Kane.

Salah will set Dream Team managers back a hefty £8m, however there is no doubt that your investment will be returned with plenty of goals this season.

Those managers looking to pick the Egyptian as a midfielder in their team will be left disappointed, as the Liverpool man has been moved to a striker in this year’s game.

What are the Dream Team rules?

Every single season the Premier League gets more intriguing – and playing Dream Team really is the perfect way to enhance your experience of it.

You’ll be assigned a total budget of £50m for each side you pick and you’ll be able pick a maximum of 10 free teams.

The Game Weeks run from Friday to Thursday, effectively meaning the new Game Week starts after the last Europa League games are completed.

You get three transfers a month on the first Friday of every month so using them wisely is essential.

Every player on the game will be assigned a price at the start of the season which will then vary and fluctuate on a weekly basis dependent on their performances.

For example, last season we valued Mo Salah at £4m at the start of the season but the Egyptian King rocketed to over £11m by the end after his stunning goalscoring form.
