Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has selected three current players in his all-star Liverpool team. Retired England international Jamie Carragher was told to select his best Liverpool XI while he was on CBS Sports for the coverage of the latest Champions League games on Wednesday. The ex-Red central defender opted for three of the current members of the Liverpool team namely Trent Alexander-Arnold, Virgil Van Dijk and Mohamed Salah.

For his goalkeeper, Jamie Carragher went for Ray Clemence ahead of Brazil international Alisson Becker, Spanish shot stopper Pepe Reina and Polish star Jerzy Dudek. He selected Clemence ahead of the defensive quartet of Steve Nicol, Alan Hansen, Virgil Van Dijk and Trent Alexander-Arnold. Carragher was a decent player for Liverpool until he retired from football sever years ago after attaining legendary status at the club, but he didn't include himself in the all-star team. Jamie Carragher spent his career at one club, Liverpool.

For his midfield, Egyptian national team skipper Mohamed Salah was joined by John Barnes, Aston Villa manager Steven Gerrard and Graeme Souness. Ex-Chelsea and FC Basel player Salah is an important member of the current Liverpool and he's their leading goalscorer this season with 28 goals in all competitions including 20 goals in the Premier League. Salah is the highest goalscorer in the Premier League this season and he has three more goals than his nearest challenger Son Heung-Min ahead of the final six games this season. Also, he has eight goals in the Champions League this term.
Carragher went for the duo of Ian Rush and Kenny Dalglish in his attack as he snubbed a lot of other options. The other options available include Fernando Torres, Luis Suarez and Roberto Firmino.
Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has been impressed with the Reds this season in their pursuit of four major trophies and it's not surprising that three players from the team made it to his best Liverpool XI ever.
