The Telegraph has selected what it believes to be the best Liverpool team ever…
The Telegraph recently chose their all-time Liverpool XI. Of the current side, captain Steven Gerrard was the only player to make the cut, with recent greats such as Jamie Carragher and Luis Suarez among those missing out.

Steven Gerrard names his all-time Liverpool XI – with iconic strikers and surprise full-back choice
What do you make of their selections…?
GK) Ray Clemence
Commanding and positionally astute goalkeeper who marshalled Liverpool’s miserly defence for over a decade, helping guide us to three European Cups, five titles and two Uefa Cups.
RB) Phil Neal
The attacking full-back is the most decorated player in the club’s history, having garnered winners’ medals for four European Cups, eight league titles, four League Cups and a Uefa Cup. No Englishman has ever won more.
LB) Ron Yeats
“With him in defence we could play Arthur Askey in goal,” Bill Shankly said of the man he appointed captain. Yeats remained as skipper for nine years, and helped the Reds think they were near unbeatable.
