Robbie Fowler and fellow BT Sport pundits pick their greatest Liverpool XI from the PL era

Liverpool FC Supporters Club Legends Appearance

It's become a running joke amongst football fans who don't support Liverpool that their last title success was in 1990. However, they're looking more likely than ever to claim their maiden crown, four points clear at the top of the table.

Jurgen Klopp's side have surprised many in the manner of which they have dispatched of teams this season, minus that minor setback against Pep Guardiola's Manchester City, of course.

Looking back through the past 27 years, Liverpool have been able to boast a plethora of top talent seeing the likes of Luis Suarez, Fernando Torres, John Barnes and Steven Gerrard wear the red shirt.

BT Sport asked their pundits - Robbie Savage, Chris Sutton and ex-Liverpool players Robbie Fowler and Steve McManaman - to give their best Liverpool eleven from the Premier League era.

The responses from each pundit prove the quality Liverpool have had despite never reaching the Premier League pinnacle.

Each pundit had there own take on formation and personnel but one player in particular was a common theme across all elevens in the middle of the park.

Yes, it is no surprise that Steven Gerrard has been picked by every BT Sport pundit as the midfield maestro.

Virgil van Dijk has impressed enough in his short time at the club to win over all pundits except McManaman who went for an old-school pairing of Jamie Carragher and Sami Hyypia.

The front line proved to be an interesting talking point with a combination of Michael Owen, Mohamed Salah, Suarez and Fowler being used. 

Fowler was modest enough to not pick himself.

The man in between the sticks also divided opinion with each pundit picking a different goalkeeper.

Savage picked Champions League winner Jerzy Dudek, McManaman went for the eccentric Bruce Grobbelaar, Fowler went with Pepe Reina and Sutton opted for Liverpool's current stopper, Allison.

If Liverpool can win the Premier League title this season then expect to see the majority of the current squad featuring in elevens such as these for years to come.
