Central-midfielder: Steven Gerrard | Liverpool

Selecting the final central midfielder in this team wasn’t easy by any stretch of the imagination.

In terms of natural ability, former Manchester United star Paul Scholes would have been selected. However, on account of his incredible exploits for Liverpool and the fact that he is still a key member of the Reds’ team, Steven Gerrard is picked to line up next to Frank Lampard.
