LIVERPOOL SQUAD: Who are the oldest and youngest players in the Liverpool squad this season?
The Reds have enjoyed a brilliant start to the Premier League campaign, winning their first four matches to go top of the table.
We’ve taken a look at the age make-up of Jurgen Klopp’s side, and there are some interesting findings.
It is clear Liverpool have a pretty young team, with James Milner the oldest player at 32, and one of just three players the wrong side of 30.
Dejan Lovren, at 29, is the fourth oldest member of the squad, with club captain Jordan Henderson the sixth oldest at 28.
The youngest member of the squad is Trent Alexander-Arnold, who at 19 is over a year younger than the second youngest – Dominic Solanke.
Naby Keita, Divock Origi and Joe Gomez are the other three players who are 23 or youngest.
The best news for the Reds is the number of players they have who are between 24 and 27, and theoretically coming into their prime.
14 players fall into that age bracket, and remarkably the superstar front three of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino are all the same age – 26.
If Klopp can keep this team together for the next few years, then surely success will follow.
