Liverpool’s most-used XI of the Premier League era: Only one current player
Liverpool has been home to some incredible players throughout the Premier League era – but which players make up their most-used XI since the competition’s inception in 1992?
The team includes a few club legends and cult heroes, while only one current Liverpool player makes the cut.
Thanks to the help of Transfermarkt, we’ve compiled an XI of Liverpool’s most-used players in the Premier League, arranged in a 4-4-f*cking-2.
Reina made 285 Premier League appearances for Liverpool, but we’re more bothered about the time when he played in midfield during a pre-season friendly.
Johnson is something a surprise inclusion – Rob Jones (155 appearances) and Steve Finnan (145 appearances) both closely follow – but the right-back did make 160 appearances during his six years at the club.
Alexander-Arnold is already on 84 appearances and will surely take Johnson’s place in this team in the near future.
Just the 508 Premier League appearances for Liverpool – nudging him ahead of Gabriel Paletta.
Liverpool spent just £2.6million on Hyypia in 1999, which proved to be a bargain as the defender made 318 appearances over the next 10 years.
John Arne Riise
Paul Konchesky was just 219 appearances off making this spot his own.
Just think of how much distance Kuyt must have covered during his 208 Premier League appearances.
Mohamed Salah is in second place with 100.

With 264 appearances to his name at the time of writing, the current Liverpool captain edges out former team-mate Lucas Leiva.
Gerrard made 504 appearances for Liverpool, but none were shorter than his 38-second cameo against Manchester United in 2015.
McManaman was a key figure for Liverpool throughout the 1990s before deciding to join Real Madrid with 240 Premier League appearances to his name.
Fowler scored 128 goals in 266 appearances during his two spells at Anfield. He continues to cure our hangovers to this day.
Unlike Fowler, Owen isn’t the most popular figure at Anfield, but it’s easy to forget just how good the striker was.
He managed 118 goals in 216 appearances before leaving for Real Madrid in 2004.
