Liverpool sit top of the league with four games remaining and are on the verge of ending their 24-year wait for a 19th league title.
The last time they ended the campaign as champions of England was the 1989/90 season under player-manager Kenny Dalglish.
Such has been the form of Brendan Rodgers' side this season—and especially the style of football Liverpool have been playing—comparisons between the two sides then and now have been drawn.
Both sides had incredible attacking talents and were capable of handing teams big defeats. Kenny's side that season won 9-0 at Crystal Palace, 4-1 at Manchester City, 5-2 at Chelsea, 4-0 at Charlton and 6-1 at Coventry.
Similarly, Rodgers' side this season have handed out four-goal-plus hauls on record occasions; Everton, Tottenham (twice), Arsenal, West Brom, Swansea, Cardiff, Norwich and Fulham all leaking four or more goals to the Reds.
We take a look at the key players from each side and compare the two sides to create a combined XI.
