Daniel Sturridge (£6.0m) has been playing in a deeper number 10 role and is the club’s top-scorer over the summer.
Form Players: Sturridge (six goals, two assists), Milner (two goals, two assists), Mané (two goals, one assist), Salah (two goals, two assists), Wijnaldum (two goals) Keita (three assists)
