Posted by

Steven Gerrard will play his final game at Anfield on Saturday, as Liverpool take on Crystal Palace in our penultimate game of the season. With that in mind, this seems like the perfect time to revisit this feature.

Our outgoing captain has played over 700 games for the club, but had little trouble in picking his favourite teammates in an interview with GQ Magazine back in January. You can check out his team below…

GK) Pepe Reina

The Spanish keeper spent almost a decade at Liverpool, making almost 400 appearances. He won the Premier League’s golden glove award on three occasions before joining Bayern Munich last summer.

RB) Glen Johnson

The only member of this team, other than Gerrard himself, still with the club, although he also looks set to leave with his contract expiring at the end of the season. Made his 200th appearance for the club last weekend.

LB) John Arne Riise

Riise became renowned at Anfield for his bursting runs from full-back and his powerful shots. The Norwegian, who is currently playing with APOEL in Cyprus, made over 300 appearances for the Reds, scoring 30 times.

CB) Jamie Carragher

One of only two Liverpool players to feature in more games for the club than Steven Gerrard. He played 737 of them in total, before retiring in 2013. He won 11 major honours and played a crucial role in our Istanbul triumph.

CB) Sami Hyypia

Another integral member of our 2005 Champions League run; the vast majority of Liverpool fans will remember his incredible goal against Juventus. The big Finn is still an incredibly popular figure on Merseyside.
