Liverpool manager Gerard Houllier celebrates winning the UEFA Cup Liverpool. Westfalenstadion, Dortmund, May 2001.

On May 16, 2001, Liverpool capped off the most memorable of seasons in dramatic fashion with an unforgettable 5-4 victory over Alaves in the UEFA Cup Final. 

Gerard Houllier’s Reds had already lifted the League Cup and FA Cup during that 2000-01 campaign and completed a treble of trophies at the Westfalenstadion in Dortmund.

It was an eight-goal thriller over the course of 90 minutes, as the plucky La Liga outfit pegged back Liverpool to 4-4, but a 116th-minute own goal from Alaves full-back Delfi Geli proved decisive – the golden goal, as were the rules back then.

We’re asking you to name the starting XI that Houllier went with that night – so not including Robbie Fowler, Patrik Berger and Vladimir Smicir, who came off the bench. There’s plenty of famous names, so we’re expecting strong scores.

If this puts you in the mood for another challenge, why not have a go at naming every Liverpool player to have scored in the Premier League for Jurgen Klopp?
