The Reds topped the fantasy football team with six selected players including Alisson Becker, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Ozan Kabak, Andy Robertson, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.

In addition, Kylian Mbappe of Paris Saint-Germain, Federico Chiesa of Juventus, Suso of Sevilla, Mahmoud Dahoud of Borussia Dortmund and Erling Haaland have also been named.
