With arguably the two biggest clubs in English football, Liverpool and Manchester United, both among the busiest clubs in Europe in the transfer market this summer, CaughtOffside takes a look at how the two teams compare as the summer transfer window draws to a close.
The two teams have spent roughly £266.2m combined this summer on some truly huge names, with Liverpool desperate to establish themselves at the top of the Premier League again after coming so close to ending their title drought last year, while United are in dire need of strengthening after finishing in 7th last season.
With a number of new signings included, here’s a look at the best players competing for each position for these two great clubs and who comes out on top:
Goalkeeper: David de Gea vs Simon Mignolet
Two strong players in goal for these two sides, with United shot-stopper David dea Gea surely the better of the two, though Mignolet may improve for Liverpool in his second season at the club. Quite simply, the Spaniard is one of the best in the world in his position on his day, and his form could help keep the club in the fight for a top four spot.
Vote: de Gea
