The official Fantasy Premier League released a first look at a host of Liverpool players ahead of the 2022/23 campaign.
FPL managers all over the world will be eyeing up potential players for their squads as they prepare to take on their family and friends in competitive leagues all over again.
The return of the Premier League is just over a month away with fans debating which of their favourite stars will make the cut.

Salah Price Increase
Having just re-signed a long-term deal at the club, Mohamad Salah will be staying in Liverpool until 2025 and FPL managers everywhere will certainly be overjoyed.
The Egyptian recorded 230+ points in his each of his five Premier League campaigns and was selected by a whopping 41% of players.
As a result, fans will have to pay an extra £0.5m for his services, as his starting price of £13.0m is his highest price since the 2018/19 season.
He could be set for a flying start to the season, as the Reds face just one of last term’s top six in their first seven outings.
January signing Luis Diaz will begin his first full season with the club at a fairly modest price of £8.0m, following a brilliant start to his career at Anfield.
Taking over the left-wing spot from former fan favourite Sadio Mane, Diaz will be a key man this season and will have a full season to terrorize Premier League defences.
Diogo Jota (£9.0m) was also in inspired form last season as a central striker, and the FPL has moved the Portuguese star from a midfielder to a striker for the upcoming season.
He scored 15 times in the league and laid on six assists in his best-ever return in England.
The arrival of Darwin Nunez could prove to be a popular one amongst users, given he produced 26 goals and four assists in 28 games for Benfica last term.
He joined Liverpool for a fee close to £70m and will be in competition with Jota for that central attacking role and is available at £9.0m.

Defensively, Liverpool’s three key men in Trent Alexander-Arnold, Andrew Robertson and Virgil van Dijk have all remained at the same prices from last season.
Alexander-Arnold (£7.5m) placed third in the overall table with 208 points and will no doubt be one of the most popular selections once again having been picked by 37.9% of players.
Robertson (£7.0m) and van Dijk (£6.5) are also premium defenders, scoring 186 and 183 points respectively.
Alisson (£6.5m) recorded his best points return since the 2018/19 season, keeping 20 clean sheets on the way to a huge 176 points total.
New signing Calvin Ramsey will feature as a rotation player at right back, and enters the league with a £4.0m price tag that could tempt fans as a cheap back-up.
In midfield, Thiago Alcantara is available cheap at £5.5m after his best season in a Liverpool shirt so far, and young starlet Harvey Elliot is also available at £5.0m.
