Ranking every Liverpool player by their share price on Football Index
Liverpool are Premier League champions and have a squad packed full of world-class talent – but who are their most valuable players according to Football Index?
Football Index is a real-money betting platform where you can buy and sell footballers and bet on their future success. You can win money in a variety of ways.
Capital appreciation: This involves the players that you own on Football Index going up in price
Media Dividends: These reward players you own that are in the news the most
Match Day Dividends: These reward players you own that turn in the best on-field performances.
You can also win ‘In-Play Dividends’ which reward you in the first 30 days of owning a player if they perform well on the pitch.
More detailed information on dividends can be found here.
All the above affects how many traders want to buy a particular player and so how that player is valued on Football Index.
And here’s how Liverpool’s players rank according to their current share prices on the platform, ranging from £5.42 to just £0.47.
The big guns
One of the keys to success on Football Index can be finding discrepancies.
For example, should there really be a £0.76 gap between Mo Salah and Sadio Mane?
Both are 28 years old, and last season Salah only just won their cumulative goals and assists battle by 35 to 30 in all competitions.
And with Andy Robertson seemingly firing on more cylinders than Trent Alexander-Arnold so far this season, you can expect Mane to get plenty of joy down the left.
Thiago Alcantara’s price has got us stroking our chins too. He looks to be a fine addition to Jurgen Klopp’s side, but is he a touch high at £2.33?
He’ll turn 30 in April, meaning there may not be much share price growth in him.
He doesn’t hog the back (or front) pages so isn’t a regular candidate for media dividends.
And though a wonderful metronome in the middle of the pitch, he only registered three goals and two assists in 40 appearances last season, so you wouldn’t expect him to pick up too many matchday dividends either.
The fringe players
Divock Origi has started just six times for Liverpool in the Premier League since the beginning of the 2019-20 season.
And though he’s been central to some of the club’s biggest moments in the last couple of years, it’s a wonder the 25-year-old Belgian hasn’t sought first-team football elsewhere.
With the sparkling Diogo Jota and even Xherdan Shaqiri now usurping him in the pecking order, maybe he will decide enough is enough.
And if he moves to another Premier League club and starts scoring, his current price of £0.85 could soon seem like a bargain. Time to snap him up?
Conversely, Takumi Minamino hit a high point of £2.18 on the Index in January after his move to Merseyside from Red Bull Salzburg but is yet to make too much of an impact.
However, he’s undoubtedly an outstanding player, and if injuries continue to rip their way through Liverpool’s first XI, then his impact on this campaign – and his share price – could grow.
If you’re looking to work on the cheap, then Marko Grujic is an interesting case.
The Serbian has been at the club since 2016 but has spent most of the subsequent years out on loan. But does he not represent more of a possible capital growth upside than 34-year-old James Milner, who is £0.33 more expensive?
There may well be value to be found among Liverpool’s regulars – it’s worth keeping a close eye on news of Virgil van Dijk‘s recovery given he was priced as high as £3.14 last January – but it’s always worth looking to those still waiting to deliver on their potential.
And with Curtis Jones getting game time this season, it may only take one big performance – or an injury to a key player – for him to suddenly become very attractive, even at his current price of £2.04.
You’ll no doubt have your own way of assessing player value on Football Index, but the more you use comparison as a tool, the more it gives you a feel for whether players are over or under-priced.
