Best Liverpool Players to Pick for FPL DGW25

FPL gameweek 25 is another double gameweek and one of the teams with two fixtures is Liverpool.

The reds play Crystal Palace away before taking on Wolves at Anfield.

Liverpool players will undoubtedly be the most popular to transfer in for FPL DGW25. This is evidenced by the top three transfers in being Liverpool assets.

Mohamed Salah

  • Price: £12.6m
  • Picked by: 26%

It’s not a stretch to say Salah is the best Liverpool player to pick for FPL DGW25.

The Egyptian is Liverpool’s top scorer with 8 goals and has the most assists too (6).

He is underperforming his xG (11.4), taking 70 shots overall (fourth most) whilst making 12 goal-creating actions (5th most).

Per 90 he has the highest non-penalty xG (0.5) and the most touches in the opposition box (8.3) in Europe’s top 5 leagues.

Liverpool face Palace and Wolves in DGW25, and Salah has only lost to the pair once each during his Premier League career.

He’s a great replacement for Bruno Fernandes or Kevin De Bruyne, who have blank and single gameweeks respectively.

Darwin Nunez

  • Price: £8.7m
  • Picked by: 10%

Darwin has 6 goals and four assists so far in his debut season at Anfield.

He has the highest xGI per 90 for Liverpool, a staggering 1.2.

Like Salah, he’s also underperforming his xG (10.8) which may be a confidence issue, but goals in consecutive games against Newcastle and Real Madrid will help.

He’s not shy in front of goal, taking the most shots per 90 (5.5) and the most on target (2.3).

The forward is a player that has the potential to haul and it could be this gameweek.

Cody Gakpo

  • Price: £7.8m
  • Picked by: 5%

Gakpo finally scored his first two Liverpool goals in consecutive games in the previous two gameweeks.

The Dutchman is averaging more goals per 90 than Salah (0.5 compared to 0.4), which is the fourth most in the team.

He is listed as a midfielder but has been playing out of position as a center-forward, taking three shots per 90 (5th most in the team).

The shots he’s taking are of high quality too, averaging a non-penalty xG per shot of 0.2 (5th highest).

Gakpo could be a great differential.

Trent Alexander-Arnold

  • Price: £7.3m
  • Picked by: 20%

With Liverpool not picking up as many clean sheets this season (7 compared to 11 in 21/22 after 22 games) Alexander-Arnold is less popular this year.

However, he’s still putting up great underlying numbers, as well as a goal and four assists.

He has an xA of 6.2, which is the 7th highest overall and the second-highest amongst defenders.

The right-back has made the second most crosses into the box (18), 51 passes into the box (fourth most), and 41 key passes (9th most).

As a team, Liverpool have conceded the fourth-fewest shots per game (10.4), and they face two sides in the bottom four for xG, including the lowest scorers, Wolves (17).

Andrew Robertson

  • Price: £6.8m
  • Picked by: 7%

Robertson is another obvious Liverpool defensive option.

The Scottish international has more assists than his full-back colleague Alexander-Arnold (5), however, he has a lower xA (3.8) and xG (1.2) than him.

But Robertson, at £6.8m, is a cheaper alternative to TAA, costing £0.5m less than him.
