Shaqiri joined Liverpool in 2018 from Stoke City and soon helped the team secure a win against Manchester United at Anfield with a Kop-end brace. Playing in a variety of attacking positions, he featured on 30 occasions during a debut campaign in which Liverpool fought with Manchester City for the Premier League title, losing just one game. He was also part of the historic 4-0 win over Barcelona in Champions League semi-final second leg, providing an assist for Liverpool’s third goal.
Injury barred Shaqiri to participate in the 2019-20 Champions League season but he played both of his team’s matches at the Club World Cup, which the Reds lifted for the first time in their history. He was also part of the squad that won the Premier League after 30 years, finishing on 99 points, 18 clear at the summit.
