The choice was a tricky one, as the players in question have had careers to remember at Anfield and are individuals that are eternally sewn into Anfield’s prestigious folklore.
The Reds’ current No. 9, Roberto Firmino, is not best known for his goalscoring but gives his service in a role which has become unique to the Brazil international.

The other options were Fernando Torres, Robbie Fowler and Ian Rush. Out of the three, Rush scored the most goals for the club and holds the record as the all-time top scorer at Anfield with 346 goals, Robbie Fowler sits 6th on the list with 183 goals.
Having only been at the club for three-and-a-half seasons, Torres scored 81 goals for the club but was applauded for his immediate impact and played a part of the deadly duo with club legend Steven Gerrard.
Supporters could not decide on which player was their favourite and made their feelings clear on social media.
Here you will find some of the many mixed responses from Liverpool fans:
