Liverpool have finished the 2018/19 season as European champions, with Jurgen Klopp‘s players enjoying career-defining moments along the way.
It was a campaign that will go down as one of the greatest in the Reds’ history, particularly during the Premier League era.
Having fallen just short in the title race, despite a record-breaking 97-point haul, Klopp’s men sealed Champions League glory in Madrid.
The 2-0 win over Tottenham was one of the most important results of all time for Liverpool, hopefully inspiring them to even greater heights moving forward.
Every squad member contributed throughout the season, etching their name into Reds folklore in the process.
On an individual and team level, it was a campaign to remember as Liverpool continued their meteoric rise and set a new benchmark for what is expected in the years ahead.
The Reds played 53 games across all competitions throughout the 2018/19 campaign, three fewer than last season: 38 were won, eight drawn and seven lost.
Alisson may have been a huge figure in the Champions League final, but without an earlier intervention from him before Christmas, European glory would not have been possible.
The Brazilian’s last-gasp save to deny Napoli’s Arkadiusz Milik at Anfield kept Liverpool in the competition, rather than crashing out in the group stage.
What a remarkable year it has also been for Trent, who broke the assists record for a defender in a Premier League season (12) and earned Champions League glory at his boyhood club.
The youngster’s hat-trick of assists in the 5-0 win at home to Watford caught the eye—his free-kick at Vicarage Road was also magnificent—but there is only answer to this question.
The 20-year-old’s assist in the unforgettable victory over Barcelona, in which he took a corner early and allowed Divock Origi to make it 4-0, was bordering on genius.
Talking about the 2018/19 season, surely we can’t miss Virgil van Dijk.
The Dutchman has too many immaculate performances and moments to mention, but in terms of importance, his tackle on Son Heung-min in the Champions League final has to top the pile.
He looked in trouble but put on the afterburners, ensuring he went the entire season without being dribbled past.
