What is Liverpool’s best XI?

According to many observers, Rafael Benitez does not know his best eleven. Well, perhaps we as the Liverpool fans we should put forward our suggestions and see which one is the most popular.

In my opinion, 4-4-2 with these players is the most balanced side Liverpool can put out.

If it is played consistently and its a big IF then Liverpool just might finish second and close the gap with the leaders to between 6-9 points come the end of the season.

So, with that in mind, here’s my best XI for Liverpool:

ReinaArbeloa Carragher Agger AurelioBenayoun Gerrard Mascherano Kewell

Torres Babel

It should be noted that with Benayoun, Kewell, Gerrard, Torres and Babel, we have players who can score goals. Pennant is, in my opinion, not only a better player than Benayoun but the more orthodox winger. However, what stops him from being a truly top class winger is his lack of goals. In Benayoun, Liverpool have a tricky player who gets into the box and knows how to finish.

Playing Babel up front consistently with Torres may help to develop a good understanding between the pair and who knows, we may see Babel realise his awsome potential.

Aurelio and Arbeloa are our best full backs, without a shadow of a doubt. Aurelio unfortunately, is very injury prone. However, whenever he has been fully fit and with a run of games behind him, he has shown his class. PSV, Arsenal at Anfield 06-07 and Man City few weeks back anyone?

So with that in mind, lets have some of your opinions – who do you think should be in Liverpool’s starting XI?
