Liverpool's All-Time Premier League XI Picked By Charlie Austin

Charlie Austin has picked seven of Liverpool's current team in his all-time Premier League XI for the Reds.

Jurgen Klopp's 'mentality monsters' are undoubtedly the best Liverpool team of the modern era and could end the season with an unprecedented quadruple.

In the Premier League, Liverpool are just one point behind leaders Manchester City with four games remaining in the season.

Klopp's side are also through to the Champions League final where they will face Real Madrid, who beat City in their dramatic semi-final second leg on Wednesday night.

Liverpool have already won the Carabao Cup this season with a penalty shootout victory over Chelsea and the two sides will meet again at Wembley in the FA Cup final on Saturday.

In light of Liverpool's recent achievements, QPR striker Austin - who is a Reds supporter - was asked to pick the Merseyside club's all-time Premier League XI and came up with a few surprising choices.

Speaking on talkSPORT, Austin named Alisson in goal and three of Liverpool's current back four in his defence – Andy Robertson, Virgil van Dijk and Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Anfield legend Jamie Carragher the only defender from yesteryear to make Austin's XI.

In midfield, Steven Gerrard was an automatic pick alongside another former player in Xabi Alonso.

Meanwhile, Austin surprisingly named Thiago Alcantara as his third midfielder – snubbing the likes of Javier Mascherano, Philippe Coutinho and Liverpool's current captain Jordan Henderson.

"He's phenomenal. For me, I feel like he's the final piece of the puzzle for this Liverpool team," said Austin, explaining his decision to select Thiago.

Up front, Austin named Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah either side of Luis Suarez in a 4-3-3 formation, leaving out the likes of Fernando Torres, Michael Owen and Robbie Fowler.

Here is Austin's Liverpool XI in full: Alisson, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Virgil van Dijk, Jamie Carragher, Andy Robertson, Xabi Alonso, Steven Gerrard, Thiago Alcantara, Mohamed Salah, Luis Suarez, Sadio Mane
