Tottenham Hotspur Vs Manchester United – Combined Lineup
The last weeks of the Premier League has witnessed some high-octane actions between the top clubs in the country. After United’s trip to Arsenal that ended in a loss, the Red Devils face a similarly tough trip to White Hart Lane this weekend. Tottenham are healing from a loss to the Hammers and will want to go for the kill to finish the season on a high.
Both teams have some star players who are sure to set the field on fire this weekend but who has been the best among the two?
Combined Playing XI:
GK – David de Gea (Manchester United)
Though Lloris has been exceptional, De Gea has had an inconsistent defence ahead of him and has been more influential for United. So he gets the nod.
RB – Kyle Walker (Tottenham Hotspur)
Antonio Valencia was a decent competitor for this position, but Walker, standing as one of the most effective full-backs in England, should find a place in this side.
CB – Toby Alderweireld (Tottenham Hotspur)
The Belgian defender is arguably one of the best in the League at the moment and his consistency gets him a place in this lineup.
CB – Eric Bailly (Manchester United)
The summer buy for United, Bailly has been their best defender this season and he just edges past Jan Vertonghen into this side.
LB – Ben Davies (Tottenham Hotspur)
With Darmian, Blind, Shaw and Rose all failing to play regularly, it is Ben Davies who finds a place in this combined XI.
CM – Ander Herrera (Manchester United)
Though Wanyama has done a decent job, Herrera has been the best midfielder for United and will be the deepest of the midfielders in this lineup.
CM – Paul Pogba (Manchester United)
Having played more successful passes than any other player in the league, Pogba, though not effective in front of goal, edges past Dier into this place.
CM – Mousa Dembele (Tottenham Hotspur)
The only Spurs star in this midfield is Dembele. He has been a creative force like none other for Tottenham and has little competition for his position.
RW – Dele Alli (Tottenham Hotspur)
The English playmaker has been superb this season and has more goals than any other United player currently available for selection at Old Trafford.
LW – Christian Eriksen (Tottenham Hotspur)
The Danish international has also been in impeccable form and he just edges past Henrikh Mkhitaryan due to his consistency this season.
ST – Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur)
Rashford and Martial have done nothing wrong to their reputations but Kane, even after missing almost 50 days of action, has more goals than the United duo and finds a place in this side.
This is how they would line up:
