For the first time in Liverpool's history 11 starting players from 11 nationalities


For the first time in Liverpool's history, 11 starters from 11 different nationalities were gathered in the lineup during their 4-1 victory over Brentford in the English Premier League on Saturday.

Following the injuries of Trent Alexander-Arnold, Alisson Becker, Thiago Alcântara, and Diogo Jota, manager Jürgen Klopp made changes, assembling players from 11 countries in Liverpool's starting lineup for the first time in its 132-year history.

The German coach relied on Irishman Caoimhin Kelleher in goal, with Conor Bradley from Northern Ireland and Frenchman Ibrahima Konaté in defense, alongside Dutchman Virgil van Dijk and Scot Andrew Robertson.

In midfield, the lone Englishman in the lineup was Curtis Jones, alongside Argentine Alexis Mac Allister and Japanese Takumi Minamino.

The attacking line featured Portuguese Diogo Jota, Colombian Luis Diaz, and Uruguayan Darío Núñez, before Egyptian Mohamed Salah came on as a substitute.

Núñez, Mac Allister, Salah, and Cade Gordon all found the net, propelling Liverpool to 57 points at the top of the table, two points ahead of Arsenal.
