30. Dani Carvajal, right back, Real Madrid

The Spaniard has struggled at times this season, but came up big against Manchester City at Santiago Bernabeu and remains a regular starter under Carlo Ancelotti. Liverpool will likely target him from the off so a solid central defensive pairing will be vital to keep some of the heat away from Carvajal so that he can get forward as he did against City. -- Jonathan Johnson
