Jamie Carragher picks his greatest Liverpool XI from players he's seen play

A.S. Roma v Liverpool - UEFA Champions League Semi Final Second Leg

Liverpool are still looking for their first Premier League title but they’re very much in a title-race this season.

Despite draws in their previous two games, Jurgen Klopp’s side still hold a three-point lead over Manchester City.

It could have been seven points but any Liverpool fan would have taken this situation after 25 matches.

With the likes of Alisson, Virgil van Dijk and Mohamed Salah in their ranks, Liverpool have the quality to finally break their league title drought.

But it’s been a long time since the Merseysiders dominated English football.

During the 1970s and 1980s, Liverpool were almost unstoppable.

From 1963/64 season to the 1989/90 season, the club won 13 of their 18 league titles.

In the 29 years since, Liverpool haven’t won one.

Dalglish, Moran and Evans

That’s why, when picking his greatest ever Liverpool XI, Jamie Carragher failed to pick a single current player.

The Liverpool Echo asked followers to name Liverpool’s best XI from players they’ve seen live.

Carragher missed the ‘seen live’ bit and went on to name his greatest ever Liverpool XI.

The former defender then noticed that he had to have seen the players live and came back with another XI.

Two pretty incredible line-ups.

While Liverpool have had some brilliant squads in the past, Carragher thinks they don’t have the depth to compete with even fifth-placed Manchester United.

“I said yesterday Manchester United have a better squad than Liverpool. People may have thought it was a strange thing to say but I think we’re seeing little signs of it,” he said on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football.
