Combined XI of the Premier League rivals.
With Manchester United hosting Liverpool in this weekend’s big game, here’s a look at a best combined XI of the two sides, with some difficult selection choices along the way…
GK: David de Gea (Manchester United)
One of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League, David de Gea is an easy choice in goal over Liverpool’s Simon Mignolet, who has been poor this season.
DR: Rafael (Manchester United)
Despite a number of players filling in at right-back for United this season, Rafael would perhaps be first choice if fit and is potentially their best option in that role.
DL: Alberto Moreno (Liverpool)
An exciting young player who is perhaps taking time to settle, Alberto Moreno still looks a better bet than United’s expensive and risky summer signing Luke Shaw.
