Midfielders are probably one of the most important elements of the game we call football and Liverpool has been quite lucky with the players they’ve bagged all these years. From Steven Gerrard to Jordan Henderson, each player has had to play an important part in the glorious story of the Reds. EssentiallySports brings you Liverpool’s top 5 midfielders in the PL era. Let’s go:
1. Steven Gerrard:
The heart and the soul of Liverpool, the prodigal son as he’s often called; Steven Gerrard is a Liverpool legend to say the least. His ability to constantly pull something great out of the bag with average players surrounding him is truly outstanding. Some will argue that the greatest ever Liverpool player is Kenny Dalgish, and if so, then certainly Steven Gerrard is the greatest ever Liverpool midfielder. Having made his first team debut in 1998, there was no turning back. Slowly but surely he made a name for himself in the business and emerged as one of the most important players for both his club and country. With 504 appearances for Liverpool and 120 goals, he has reshaped the club’s status and performance.
