One of the best players football has ever seen. The name is enough.. It's lovely to watch him on the field. He is real play maker. It's not only the goals which make him world class but the quality of passes, Power behind the long shots, enthusiasm and vision that is not comparable. No one can be as loyal as him.

He is so good especially when he scored a hat-trick and when he scores against Man Utd. We all love you Steven Gerrard. Steve Gerrard Gerrard he scores from 40 yards he is better than Frank Lampard Steve Gerrard Gerrard

3 Fernando Torres Fernando Torres Fernando José Torres Sanz is a Spanish professional footballer who plays as a striker for La Liga club Atlético Madrid, on loan from Serie A club Milan.

Torres gave Liverpool the victories no one could have given in 3 years! He made Liverpool win against Manchester united and Chelsea several times! He was truly a Liverpool hero!

His speed and agility are beyond imagination... Though gerrard is an awesome player torres almost equals him!

Fernando Torres is an awesome player even if he betrayed liverpool he is still good.

He's just the beat

The best of liverpool

Ian rush was well better than gerrard he should be first he scored 346 goals ever

He was really good

He is the best not even suarez can beat this guy. He is unstoppable

5 Luis Suarez Luis Suarez Luis Alberto Suárez Díaz is a Uruguayan professional footballer who plays for Spanish club Barcelona and the Uruguay national team as a striker.

It's Luis Suarez, right? What a player! He is just fantastic, and Liverpool should try to hold on to him. He needs to have a more constant partner up front. He's not a lone ranger and has suffered from isolation this season.

Good at taking shots from inside the box and could be the next big thing and he is better than peter crouch!

the best

This player has a good skill. He also has a good attemts. He also nimble and clever scoring from a narrow space.

6 Robbie Fowler

Few shall ever know, what is on the other side. That place in the heart which makes its owner explore the darkest realms but at the same time as remaining true to oneself. Robbie Fowler was born there, and would make it impossible for anyone to spot him let alone catch him. That kinda fire is always destined to be ephemeral. Consider yourself lucky you witnessed it.

he is god, one of the best to ever play at the club. the amount of goals and his loyalty were second to none

Best goal finisher ever! Remember the 3 goals against arsenal?

Like a firework in the wind.

9 Kevin Keagen

Keegan was Shankly personified on the pitch.

Liverpool's best because he transformed an ordinary side and left behind a great legacy - perhaps not the best pure footballer but certainly the most effective in Liverpool's history

Keegan represnts the great Liverpool success story. Kevin is still the best Kop player.

The Best forever!

10 John Barnes


I had to add him on the list! This man is an absolute legend! One of the greatest players for Liverpool without a doubt. - madcat701

Barnes had a way of exciting the Kop with his powerful runs and brilliant goals. Third best player in Liverpool FC' history.

Years ahead of his time. I don't think his play would look out of place in the prem now.

Should be up in top 5

One of the greatest RW to ever play in the Premier League. Was bought for on a bargain and it's been paying off ever since. Just hoping he doesn't leave England for Spain

He is in the top 10 for liverpool and is probably in the top 30 in the world right now definitely he is my favourite

I saw Mohamed in the guinness book of records, and ever since then, he has been my favorite player of all time

People have to know him to appreciate him and his success

The attacking back bone of 70/80's

No one could get past him

20 Steve Heighway

One of the greatest crossers of the ball. Loved watching him take on players down the wing and then whipping the ball into the box

Pure winger with pace and fantastic crosses. Dynamic runs down the touch line

Epitomises the chant poetry in motion

Pure genius

21 Djibril Cisse

He should be among first 10

he's good but not as good as torres and gerrard I voted for him because his hair is cool lol but he's good enough and ian rush and th erest of the lads are good aswell


22 Sadio Mane

World class

Fast and great goal scorer

The best

23 Jose Manuel Reina

no hairstyle and a cool keeper, even if he can't tell a football from a beachball

24 Sami Hyypia

Definitely the best defender of the modern time of Liverpool FC.

He is Best. Nobody can beat Hyypiä

In Finland, we don't have lot of good players. Everyone says that our best player is Jari Litmanen, but that's not true. Hyypiä is boss he's best and unstoppable

25 Luis Garcia

just good

26 Jan Molby

Best passer of the ball the club has ever seen. Technically superb!

27 Billy Liddell

One for the generation over the age of 30

The best up with gerrard and dalglish

I was only 6 when he played his last game for my beloved LFC.
However my father a huge Everton fan would pay to watch him
at anfield when Everton were playing away. He must have been
a true anfield great.

28 Daniel Agger

I’m danish

29 Peter Crouch Peter Crouch Peter James Crouch is an English professional footballer who plays as a striker for Championship club Stoke City. He was capped 42 times by the England national team between 2005 and 2010, scoring 22 goals for his country in that time, and appearing at two World Cups.

I voted for him by accicent as I was just reading the ranking to my boyfriend. But he scored 50 premier league headed goals which is more than any other player (my boyfriend says). I think he has a good touch... he is cool (I say)

More skill than people gave him credit for, did well for pool in average team

Amazing dudes love him he hardly scored he was the donkey on the pitch

30 Roberto Firmino

He perfectly understand the team play. And engine of Klopp's Soccer.

He should be number 13


The main man

34 John Arne Riise

One of the best Strikers of the Ball

One of my favourite players

Norwegian Legend!

All round player

35 Emlyn Hughes Emlyn Hughes

Your top ten is by a teenager? , you placed Emlyn, who is the only british player ever to lift the European Cup twice, who like Stevie, could tackle, pass and score powerful goals and win games by sheer energy, the best captain LIVERPOOL ever had, you placed at 32, TOP player, I mean as far as influence Shanks was off the field "Crazy horse" had on it..

Who made this top ten seriously 9 year olds torres in the top 5 above hughes fowler thommo rush niel and king Kenny what people Liverpool football club was established in 1892 not 2002

I agree! one of the clubs greatest heroe's

36 Bruce Grobbelaar

A sportsman and a performer. Awesome for the sport and team!

It did take him a while to get used to Liverpool but when he did he was outstanding.

A real guard between those goal posts, he would give his life to save a goal.

An amazing keeper he saved almost every shot

41 Javier Mascherano

brilliant middleman for the club but loves to foul people

In my opinion he should be rated at least 15 because he plays for Barcelona and he's from Argentina

He took command of the midfield gave us a few anxious moments but overall he was an asset to the reds

42 Martin Skrtel

Skrtel is a great defender and likes to be in Liverpool. WELL DONE

Amazing defender!

43 Steve Finnan
44 Jamie Redknapp Jamie Redknapp
45 Albert Riera

He is great player, specially when he dribbles, he got an amazing ball skills, makes him deserves to be in the list

49 Pepe Reina Pepe Reina José Manuel "Pepe" Reina Páez is a Spanish footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for Italian club S.S.C.

Reina has kept many clean sheets for Liverpool and has played an outstanding role saving 3 out of 4 West Ham penalties in the Fa Cup final. He has done some silly saves but also done some good ones. He saved Christiano Ronaldo's free-kick and helped us win 4-1 against Manchester United.

1 of the best keepers ever!

One of the best goal keeper liverpool has got...
he is just supper when in form..

50 Christian Benteke

I never forget the overhead kick finishing that he did against ManU. Although we lose, but with honour.

Benteke the monster he scores so much goals.He is my best player.
