Some of the biggest shocks may be record goal scorer Ian Rush finishing outside the top five, Mo Salah being picked in the top three, Luis Suarez making the fourth spot and no room for Gordon Hodgson or Elisha Scott.

It’s easy to get lost in the present and this current crop are certainly making a claim to be the best side we’ve ever had, that’s what makes the choice so hard.

Few will argue with our top two though and Steven Gerrard would be happy to see that he has only been bettered by the King – Sir Kenny Dalglish.
