Goalkeeper might not be a position that Liverpool have to worry about at present, but they’ve not always been blessed with exceptional talent between the sticks.
In fact, it’s often been a problem position for the Reds over the years, and from beach ball calamities to Champions League final horror shows there’s a highlights reel that fans would probably rather not see again.
Here’s how we’ve ranked the 22 goalkeepers to represent Liverpool in the Premier League, from worst to best.
22. Danielli Padelli
Who? Exactly. Sampdoria loanee, one appearance in 2007. That’s ol’ Danielli Padelli, all right.
21. Patrice Luzi
He’s played fewer Premier League minutes than anyone else on this list – just 13. Those came as Liverpool saw out a 1-0 win over Chelsea, following an injury to Jerzy Dudek, back in 2004.
Ten caps for Brazil and over 150 appearances for Roma, Doni clearly had something about him but he’s little more than a footnote at Liverpool. He appeared just four times in the league during his time as Pepe Reina’s back-up.
19. Brad Jones
Brendan Rodgers briefly gave Jones a spell in the team, but he couldn’t hold it down. The Australian made 11 Premier League appearances, and conceded 16 goals.
18. Mike Hooper
The Hooperman was Grobelaar’s back-up in the 80s, and that continued into the Premier League era. He’d then go on to warm the bench for Kevin Keegan’s Newcastle.
17. Adam Bogdan
Believe it or not, the Hungarian was only released by Liverpool in 2019, having originally joined four years earlier. He only made two league appearances but just seemed pretty happy to be there.

16. Pegguy Arphexad
The Guadeloupe-born sticksman played second fiddle to Sander Westerveld, making only two league appearances in three years.
In fact, a 16-year senior career at the likes of Marseille, Lille, Leicester and Coventry saw him make less than 40 league appearances in total. To put that in context, Stuart Taylor made more than four times as…
