Liverpool star named as Premier League's most valuable player during 2019/20


Liverpool dominated the Premier League season as they claimed a first top flight title for 30 years.

The Reds were filled with match winners and captain Jordan Henderson was recently named FWA Player of the Year for his role in the triumph.

He as well as team-mates Virgil van Dijk and Sadio Mane are among those in the run in to be named PFA Player of the Year.

Kevin De Bruyne and Leicester’s Golden Boot winner Jamie Vardy are set to offer the Liverpool contingent some stiff competition.

But according to analysts at online crypto sportsbook Cloudbet Alisson is the most valuable player in the Premier League.

Alisson has been a star since arriving from Roma two years ago

They track trends to see how players affect the betting odds of their teams and determined that the Brazilian No 1 was more valuable than any other player.

When Alisson started in goal for the Reds their betting odds dropped by 15 per cent.

An injury in the season opener meant that the former Roma man missed the early part of the season and was also absent midway through the campaign.

Liverpool initially coped well without him as Adrian came in and deputised impressively.

But the Spaniard again had to step in for games against Chelsea in the FA Cup and Atletico Madrid in the Champions League.

The Reds No 1 kept 13 clean sheets

In both he made costly errors which saw the Reds dumped out and further underlined the importance of Alisson.

The Brazilian still managed to keep 13 clean sheets in 29 games.

Second on the list of most valuable players, based on the metric, was Newcastle’s Allan Saint Maximin.

He was followed in third by Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish, who played a vital role in keeping his boyhood club in the Premier League.
