Unsurprisingly Steven Gerrard makes the cut, along with John Barnes, who spent nine years playing for Liverpool before leaving for Newcastle.

Luis Suarez and Michael Owen make for a formidable front line – with 240 Liverpool goals between them – while Sami Hyypia and Daniel Agger combine in the centre of defence.
