Carragher picks Coutinho for combined XI

    Coutinho has become a leading light for the team

    Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has said that only Philippe Coutinho would make a combined Reds XI from the current season added to the squads from 2008/9 and 2013/14.

    Those two squads, led by Rafa Benitez and Brendan Rodgers respectively, finished second after contesting the Premier League title in those campaigns.

    Jurgen Klopp’s current side are chasing leaders Chelsea going into the new year, which saw Carragher pose the question of selecting the side comprised of those standout teams.

    And only Coutinho would get into his team, playing from the left hand side of the attack.

    “I’ve been trying to work out how many of Klopp’s first choice would get into a combined side of the last two that pursued Anfield’s holy grail.” he wrote in the Daily Mail.

    “The only one I could see being a definite is Philippe Coutinho, to play from the left.” he said.

    It’s tough on the likes of Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane, but when the competition is comprised of the likes of Steven Gerrard, Luis Suarez and Fernando Torres then it is understandable.
