The former defender has now named his ultimate XI which consists of players he played with under both Gerard Houllier and Rafa Benitez.

The conditions of this XI were to include players who have spent the most appearances alongside Carragher playing in a Liverpool shirt without necessarily including himself.

As seen in the image below, Carragher picked a strong XI of his former teammates who according to him are the best players he’s played with during his tenure at Liverpool…

Carragher picked Pepe Reina in goal, Steve Finnan at right-back, Sami Hyypia and Stephan Henchoz in central defence and John-Arne Riise at left-back. His midfield comprised Dietmar Hamann as a defensive midfielder alongside Steven Gerrard and Danny Murphy as central midfielders. Upfront Carragher picked Michael Owen, Emile Heskey and Dirk Kuyt.

Substitutes include Jerzy Dudek, Martin Skrtel, Daniel Agger, Lucas Leiva, Xabi Alonso, Vladimir Smicer and Robbie Fowler.

It certainly is a strong XI picked by Carragher and one Liverpool fans will surely agree with.
