The new Premier League season is so close we can almost taste that VAR drama.
Although the real football isn’t here just yet, Dream Team’s FREE 2019/20 game is officially live – you can sign up here!
Liverpool continued their preparations for the new Premier League campaign with a 3-2 defeat in a pre-season clash against Borussia Dortmund – the Bundesliga side Jurgen Klopp used to manage.
1 The year of the Ox
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (£2.5m) was pointed out by many as Liverpool’s best performer in the defeat to Dortmund as he continued his encouraging return back to full fitness after injury.
While there’s never been any doubts about the midfielder’s quality, his injury record has seen him fall down the pecking order in Klopp’s preferred choice of central midfielders.
If the Ox can rediscover the sort of form he showed at Arsenal and in his early days at Anfield, there’s nothing stopping him from becoming an ever-present in the Liverpool midfield and a Dream Team favourite this season.

2 Where there’s a Wilson, there’s a way
Harry Wilson (price TBC) looked every bit like a Premier League-ready player as he marked his return to action for Liverpool with an impressive goal against Dortmund.
The Welsh winger spent last season on loan at Derby County under the stewardship of Frank Lampard and questions have been raised over whether or not his long-term future is at Anfield.
If Wilson can continue the form he showed against Dortmund throughout the rest of pre-season, he might just force a way into the thinking Klopp and could prove to be a useful player off the bench or in cup competitions for the Reds this season.
3 Brewsty bonus for Liverpool
Sturridge’s departure has left the door open for Rhian Brewster (£1.5m) to make a name for himself at Anfield this season and the exciting young forward definitely has the ability to do so.
The 19-year-old scored from the spot and impressed off the bench in the defeat to Dortmund, a cameo performance that would have given him confidence going into what is a big season for the 2017 U17 World Cup Golden Boot winner.
