This season is the 10th anniversary of the European campaign Liverpool famously lifted the Champions League, beating AC Milan in the final on penalties, after clawing back a three goal deficit.

Barring Steven Gerrard, the side that will likely play for Liverpool this evening against Ludogrets is totally different to the one that won back in 2005.

We’ve compared the two, and would choose six stars from the 2005 XI, and five from this evening’s side in our perfect combined team!

Here’s who we went for:

GK) Jerzey Dudek v Simon Mignolet

Vote: Dudek

The Polish stopper’s heroics in the final helped the Reds win the shoot-out, and Mignolet is far too uncertain on crosses.
