Down the years defensive partnerships and formidable back lines have cemented Liverpool's name among Europe's finest - but which defence has statistically proved the most effective?
As part of our weekly Kop 10 feature, we trawled through the history books and noted the 'against' figures for every league campaign since Liverpool were promoted to the first division under Bill Shankly in 1962.
We calculated a goals conceded per game ratio for each season, ranked the defences according to those figures and then took a look at which players were the ever-presents in the winning sides.
From Emlyn Hughes and Tommy Smith to Jamie Carragher and Martin Skrtel via Phil Thompson, Alan Hansen and Sami Hyypia, our list is all-encompassing.
We've included the all-important goalkeepers from each side too - and our current stopper Pepe Reina impresses with more than one appearance on the way to No.1.
