On selecting Rice, Carragher explained: "I always talk about Fabinho or Rodri because they play for the top teams and are as good as anyone at breaking up play.

“I just think Declan Rice reminds me of an old-fashioned midfield player who plays in a two. He reminds me of Roy Keane. He is not just a holding midfield player, he drives forward with the ball. He is more than a sitting player."

Neville heaped huge praise on Robertson, calling him the best full-back in the league by a 'mile'.

He said: "Absolutely love Cancelo, I couldn’t love him more, but I cannot ignore Robertson. He is the best full-back in the league by a mile because he does both things incredibly well.

"This is eight or nine out of ten every week, the impetus he gives Liverpool in games where it is hurting, it is unbelievable. He does more than you ever notice."
