Bet you weren't expecting him. Signed from Portsmouth in the summer of 2009, his transfer fee makes Glen Johnson the most expensive right-back in Liverpool's history, narrowly ahead of Nathaniel Clyne.

The England international was a solid player for the Reds for six seasons, winning the League Cup in 2012 and was a key member of the side that narrowly missed out on the Premier League title in 2014.

Injuries prevented him from making more of an impact at Anfield and while he was a good player on his day, he was no where near the quality of Liverpool's current world class right-back Trent Alexander Arnold.

Johnson would leave on a free for Stoke City in 2015 and announced his retirement from the game last year, making him the only retired player in this XI. But given Alexander-Arnold's age and ability it should be a while before someone takes his place here.
