He has also shown his quality in this year’s competition on their way to the quarter-finals.
His importance is illustrated by an incredible statistic of how many goals he has scored and assisted since the start of last season.
The 27-year-old provided an assist for Naby Keita in the opening minutes of the first leg of the quarter-final against Porto for Liverpool to take the lead.
