With Mohamed Salah being the obvious exception, it’s fair to say that almost every Liverpool player this season has struggled to replicate the levels of performance they produced in the previous two campaigns.

But with the battle for top four so fiercely competitive with only eight games of the season to go, and an enormous task of trying to overhaul a 3-1 deficit against Real Madrid at Anfield lying in wait next week, Liverpool can’t wait on Mané to come good again indefinitely.

Perhaps the most significant drop-off of all, though, relative to his previous astronomically high standards, is that of Sadio Mané.

On the whole, Alisson Becker has been nowhere near his best on a consistent basis.

Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip can be discarded from the conversation due to injury.

He’s done it before, most notably in the first half of the 2017/18 season before exploding back into life again in the second half of the campaign, so presuming his quality hasn’t just completely evaporated within the space of a few months, it’s quite possible he’ll do it again.

His ice-cool finishing appears to have deserted him, as demonstrated by the fact he has scored just once in his last 13 league appearances despite racking up 4.5 expected goals in that period.
