Liverpool: 25 players from 25 years

Liverpool are one of a few clubs to have played in every single Premier League season. With the league celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, though, the Reds are still to take the trophy back to Anfield.

That said, some world-class players have graced the turf of Anfield over the past 25 years. I was tasked with choosing a 25-man squad of Liverpool players based on the past 25 years. The catch? I have to have a balanced squad and must only pick a single player from every season. Here’s my squad:

Whilst some names clearly pick themselves, such as Jamie Carragher, Luis Suarez and Steven Gerrard, others were more difficult to choose. No doubt some will disagree with the inclusion of Steve Finnan or Paul Ince. It’s easy to forget the contribution of some, whilst others were included to create a rounded squad.

One thing’s for sure; with this squad, Liverpool would’ve clinched a much-awaited Premier League crown by now.
