Jamie Carragher and Jamie Redknapp were asked to pick their Liverpool Premier League dream team by the Mirror for the Budweiser Dream Goal competition and had some tough selection decisions to make - especially up front.

The duo eventually settled on Fowler and Suarez as their strikeforce, with Carragher giving a hilarious reason for omitting Owen and Torres, who scored 239 goals for the club between them.

"One went to Man United and one went to Chelsea - so f**k them!" he said with a laugh.

Here is their full team, with Carragher making the cut, and Redknapp missing out.

Pepe Reina, John Arne Riise, Sami Hyypia, Jamie Carragher, Rob Jones, John Barnes, Xabi Alonso, Steven Gerrard, Steve McManaman, Luis Suarez, Robbie Fowler (4-4-2).
