As the two Premier League heavyweights prepare for battle tomorrow here we have a combined XI made up of the top Old Trafford and Emirates Stadium talents.
Tough choice this one. The Pole gets the nod even though prior to his recent injury issues he wasn’t up the same standard as last term, still a top quality custodian.
The Frenchman isn’t having the finest of seasons by his own very high standards but he is still the left-back in this team.
For the purposes of this eleven the Serbian is fit and ready for battle. Determined defender is still one of the best centre-backs in Europe.
Belgian has been a consistent force throughout his time at Arsenal, an ideal partner for Vidic.
Back from lengthy injury lay-off the French international edges out Carl Jenkinson and in form Rafael.
