4 Rangers players who can make Liverpool silent at Anfield in the Champions League match

Liverpool host Glasgow Rangers in the third match of Machday Group A of the 2022/2023 Champions League at Anfield Stadium, Wednesday (5/10/2022) early morning hrs. Although not seeded, Rangers could have made the Reds slip at Anfield.

Liverpool came into this match with a 3-3 draw against Brighton in the Premier League match last weekend. Virgil van Dijk et al. just collected 10 points from seven games in the Premier League.

Rangers who will be against Liverpool showed a good performance in the Scottish League. Last weekend, Gio van Bronckhorst’s squad managed to achieve positive results after beating Hearts 4-0.

The third match in Group A of the Champions League is a tough test for Jurgen Klopp’s team to gain victory momentum. Rangers have surprising potential. Here are four Rangers players who could endanger Liverpool at Anfield:

James Tavernier

James Tavernier is the captain and mainstay of Rangers for the last seven seasons. Playing at the right wing-back position, did not dampen his aggressiveness in scoring goals.

Last season, in the Europa League, apart from delivering his team to the final, this English player was able to come out as the top scorer with seven goals. Tavernier is also Rangers’ mainstay in helping attack and defend.

So far the former Wigan Athletic player has made 14 appearances for Rangers in various competitions and scored three goals and four assists. Kostas Tsimikas must be aware of his attacking instincts and the actions that Tavernier will present.

John Lundstram
The next player who has the potential to make Liverpool bite his finger in this match is John Lundstram. This English player is the axis of attack in the 4-2-3-1 scheme carried by Van Bronckhorst.

Lundstram is a player who is equipped with a vision of playing and reading a good match. Playing in the Scottish league, he became the third Rangers player to have a passing accuracy of 80 percent and became the second highest player to record 20 interceptions.

Jurgen Klopp certainly included the name of this one midfielder in the list of players that his troops should be wary of.

Ryan Kent
Trent Alexander-Arnold must immediately find a solution in the defensive aspect if he doesn’t want to be ravaged by Ryan Kent’s figure. This one player who plays as a left winger is predicted to be a stumbling block for the England defender.

Ryan Kent had a junior career at Liverpool’s academy before being loaned by the Reds to Bristol City. The player who is known for his dribbling and speed is currently the mainstay of The Teddy Bears.

So far, he has made 11 appearances and scored 1 goal and 4 assists in various competitions with Rangers.

Antonio-Mirko Colak
Players who had just landed from PAOK this season immediately became a mainstay for Rangers in breaking into the opponent’s goal. Yes, the goal-hungry striker is named Antonio-Mirko Colak.

The 29-year-old has scored 11 goals in 14 appearances in various competitions for Rangers. Thanks to his performance, last season’s Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos was willing to sit on the bench.

Even against Hearts in the last game, the striker managed to score 2 goals. Thanks to his sharpness, Colak is predicted to be a concern for the Liverpool defense-raising duo, namely Joel Matip and Virgil van Dijk in the match later.
