Only Two Liverpool Players Make Best Statistical Premier League Team Of The Season So Far

Liverpool have only two of their star first-team players to feature in the best statistical Premier League Team of the Season so far, according to WhoScored.

The Reds are racing away with their title challenge as they hold a whopping 22-point lead over defending champions Manchester City.

But Liverpool stars Virgil van Dijk and Sadio Mane are the only two players from Jurgen Klopp's side to make WhoScored's statistical XI.
