Liverpool welcome Manchester United as league leaders this weekend.

The two teams have an eclectic rivalry. Even if Mourinho’s team is in sixth place and out of the title race, they’ll want to perform well against Liverpool. Fans will be even more disgruntled if United bring a heavy defeat back from Anfield.
A solid game of football can be expected (as long as Mou does not just park the bus for 90mins).
Here’s my pick for a Liverpool and Manchester United combined eleven.

Let me know your thoughts on the combined XI.
