The best of the two sides battling at Old Trafford tonight, all rolled into one.
Goalkeeper – Iker Casillas
Currently sidelined but when fully fit he eases in ahead of David de Gea, who is, though much improved, not as capable as his national team colleague.
Left-Back – Patrice Evra
French veteran beats off Real Madrid competition for the left-back slot.
Centre-Back – Nemanja Vidic
Again the Serbian fits into this eleven on the basis of his being 100% fit, which unfortunately for Sir Alex Ferguson is these days something of a rarity.
Centre-Back – Sergio Ramos
Real Madrid centre-back, who can also occupy full-back role, will play alongside Vidic.
Right-Back – Alvaro Arbeloa
Reliable if not spectacular Spaniard just pips in-form Rafael.
