What a gulf in class! Only one Red Devil makes it into combined Chelsea & Manchester United XI…
Manchester United have been in erratic form recently, while Chelsea have been the dominant force in the Premier League. It’s no surprise therefore that a combined XI is entirely dominated by the London side with just one Red Devil making it into the team.

Here is the combined Manchester United & Chelsea XI according to the Daily Mail:
GK) Thibaut Courtois
David de Gea has been super this season, but the young Belgian Chelsea star is already considered one of the best shot-stoppers in the league.
RB) Branislav Ivanovic
The giant Serbian is unquestionably the best right-back in the league at the moment. Not only offering the perfect balance of attack and defence, but his size and power is something rarely seen in full-backs.
CB) John Terry
The ever reliable Chelsea captain, with Manchester United’s defence so poor at the moment there are few other options.
CB) Gary Cahill
The other half of the Chelsea duo, the England first choice centre-back beats out his compatriots Phil Jones and Chris Smalling.
LB) Cesar Azpilicueta
Suspended at the moment, but still first choice. Despite the Spaniard being predominantly a right-back, he has been one of the best left-backs in the league both this season and the one just gone.
