4. Sami Hyypia and Jamie Carragher

Having joined Liverpool in 1999, Sami Hyypia was to form a memorable partnership with club legend Jamie Carragher.

It was former manager Rafa Benitez that paired the two together, and during the Spaniard's first season at Anfield, Liverpool famously won their fifth European Cup in Istanbul.

Hyypia went down as one of the best foreign players to play in the Premier league, and his partnership with Carragher is perhaps Liverpool's best ever.
