Can Coutinho eventually top this pile…?
The sister site of the official website, Liverpool Xtra, has named our most gifted no.10s in history, following the brilliant form of the man who currently dons the shirt – Philippe Coutinho.
The Brazilian playmaker epitomises the modern ‘trequartista’, combining wonderful technical ability with vision and creative flair.
If he carries on progressing as he has – Coutinho can climb near the very top of this list, although he hasn’t yet been included in this compiled list.
7) Luis Garcia
As utterly frustrating as we was often brilliant. Liverpool fans forgive the Spanish attacker his lazy attitude to tracking back, and his habit of going missing, because of his penchant for utter genius. His superb volley against Juventus in the Champions League was his best strike, but his ‘ghost goal’ against Chelsea in the semi-final was that little sweeter.
6) Michael Owen
A brilliant finisher, Owen ruined his connection with the Anfield faithful by running down his contract and leaving for cheap to Real Madrid, before later signing for Manchester United. Still, his two-goal salvo won us the FA Cup in 2001, the same year in which he picked up the Ballon D’or.
