Right Forward - Mohamed Salah

Purely for his goal scoring record I had to put in Mohamed Salah. This relatively unknown speculative purchase from Roma has become a superstar and a permanent legend within Liverpool Football Club history.

Not only his goal scoring but his goal contribution stats are through the roof. Salah epitomizes Jurgen Klopp’s reign and is a poster boy for Michael Edwards’ transfer policy which has paid dividends.

Salah has been a relentless machine when it comes to creating and scoring goals which has led to Liverpool winning the top prizes under Klopp.

He is an international superstar especially in his native Egypt. My alternative selection for this position was also the first national superstar who won acclaim not only in Liverpool but all over the country.

Kevin Keegan rose to fame in the 70’s under Bill Shankly. He has admitted to playing with tears in his eyes whilst The Kop sang his name.

Centre Forward - Robbie Fowler

The most gifted finisher to put on a Liverpool shirt. Scorer of some spectacular goals against the biggest opponents.

Robbie Fowler aka God evokes so many memories to Liverpool supporters. He burst on the scene as a teenager and hit the ground running.

Not only one hattrick against Arsenal but two. There is also the couple of braces he scored against Manchester United too.

Fowler played a central role in the treble winning season with a spectacular volley in the League Cup final.

Probably even more important than that was the goal he scored against Charlton in the same season to secure the top 4 finish to get into the Champions League.

He may have grown up as an Evertonian but he was well and truly a Red legend once he had finished playing his second stint at Anfield.

Luis Suarez would be the alternative player. With 2 League Cup winners medals to his name he will be remembered more fondly for his goalscoring exploits.

Left Forward - Ian Rush

The final position goes to Ian Rush. Liverpool’s all time top scorer. Brought in as a teenager by Bob Paisley, Rush almost left Liverpool before his career got going but thankfully stuck around.

He just loved scoring goals against local rival’s Everton. He got 4 goals in one game at Goodison Park. Rush went on to torment them in the FA Cup finals in 1986 and 1989.

He was part of the team that won everything in the 1980’s. Starting off with winning European Cups and then going on to be part of the highly entertaining team built by Kenny Dalglish in the late 1980’s.

The alternative to Ian Rush would be the second highest every goal scorer for Liverpool Sir Roger Hunt. Roger Hunt played in the 60’s and was part of the 1966 England World Cup winning team.
