The 14 Liverpool players to start EVERY game in a Premier League season

Since the Premier League‘s inception in 1992, only 14 Liverpool players have started every league game in a single campaign – which is quite the feat!

In the 32 years since the First Division transitioned over to the Premier League, we have seen a 42-game campaign dwindle down to 38.

And only a select few throughout this time period have managed to start every single game in a single season.

These everpresents are hard to come by, and Liverpool have had 14 since the Premier League was formed in 1992 – and this accounts only for starts, not appearances in every game.

So without further ado, here are the 14 Reds who have managed the feat – some even more than once!


Robbie Fowler

Season: 1994/95
Minutes: 3,731

Fowler scored 25 goals and notched eight assists in what was a 42-game season. Mightily impressive.

Minutes: 3,331

Stig Inge Bjornebye was another familiar face in 1996/97, it was the defender’s most prolific campaign in a Reds shirt when it came to total appearances.

In 2004/05, Jamie Carragher played every minute of the campaign and came extremely close to replicating the feat in 2008/09, only to have been subbed off once with 19 minutes left in a game.


Pepe Reina

Season: 2018/19, 2019/20

Season: 2018/19
Minutes: 3,420

There’s a theme with debut seasons returning maximum output, and it is no different for the final goalkeeper on the list. And what a first campaign it was, he conceded only 22 times and kept 21 clean sheets!


Andy Robertson

Finally, Andy Robertson closes out the list with a consistent campaign that saw him fail to complete 90 minutes just once – in a season to otherwise forget the Scot was a reliable face when we needed it most.
