How every Liverpool player’s price on Football Index has changed this season

Advertisement Feature

Liverpool have enjoyed a quite remarkable season up to this point – and that is reflected by the changes in value of their players on Football Index.

Jurgen Klopp’s side are 22 points clear at the top of the Premier League, having dropped only two points all season, making several of their players an attractive proposition for traders on Football Index, the world’s first football stock market.

And just like any other stock market, the more traders who buy shares in a Liverpool player, the more their share price goes up. That has been spectacularly true of some Reds stars since the opening day of the season, August 9, when a 4-1 win over Norwich City at Anfield set the tone for what was to come.

Traders holding Liverpool players at that point have certainly benefitted from the Reds’ success since – including dividend pay-outs, awarded to the players most mentioned in the media and the best performers on a matchday – but the biggest gain of all has been made by anyone who held shares in Takumi Minamino before his move to England.

It is often the case that a player’s share price on Football Index will rise when moving from a foreign league to the Premier League – Odion Ighalo‘s price rose by 320% (£1.10) as he swapped China for Manchester United – but Minamino’s hike from £0.41 on August 9 to £1.82 at the end of January beats even that, an extraordinary increase of 344%.

Four players, meanwhile, saw their prices go up by more than 100% despite being at Anfield the entire time.

Jordan Henderson‘s price went from just £0.51 at the start of the season to £1.18, with a remarkable £0.57 of that 131% hike coming in January alone as a likely combination of his increased involvement in goals and the likelihood of him soon becoming the first Liverpool captain to lift the Premier League got traders interested.

Georginio Wijnaldum has experienced an almost-as-big rise of 115% courtesy of an outstanding season alongside Henderson in midfield, while Trent Alexander-Arnold bests them both with a rise of 118%.

The biggest riser, however, has been a player who did not even make his Premier League debut until December, with Curtis Jones‘ brilliant winning goal in the FA Cup against Everton the following month largely contributing to a 180% rise from £0.88 to £2.46.

Here’s how every Liverpool player’s price on Football Index has changed since the start of the season, including five whose values have actually decreased.
