Can you name every player to wear number nine for Liverpool in the Prem?


Has there every been a team to have such mixed success with a squad number than Liverpool and the number nine?

Since the advent of the Premier League and the introduction of fixed squad numbers, 10 players in 25 years have worn the number nine shirt for Liverpool.

Given that three players account for over half of those years, the Reds have obviously had some success in that department.

However, some of the other seven players have been rather less successful. Can you name every incumbent?

Yes? Well, you’ve got three minutes to prove it.

For the majority of this season, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has elected to operate without a traditional number nine leading the attack.

Klopp has instead opted for a forward line of Philippe Coutinho, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane, with the trio often wreaking havoc for opposition defences when on song.

The success of the trio has meant Divock Origi and Daniel Sturridge have to settle for life on the fringes, with the England international regularly linked with a move away from Anfield.
