Hi guys! Here is my combined 11 between the squads of Manchester United and Tottenham before the two clubs go head to head at Old Trafford tonight.
Formation – 4-1-2-1-2
Goalkeeper – David de Gea
An obvious choice on goal, as I have gone with David de Gea in goal ahead of Hugo Lloris as I believe he is the best goalkeeper in the world. There are way too many times to count that he has earned his team vital points.
Defenders – Kieran Trippier, Jan Vertonghen, Toby Alderweireld and Ben Davies
Kieran Trippier is in the team ahead of Antonio Valencia and Serge Aurier, as I feel like the Spurs and England defender is the much more effective attacker than those two, while his defending is better than Valencia’s. In the centre-back positions I have gone with Tottenham’s Belgian pairing as they are far more experienced in the Premier League than Davinson Sanchez and Eric Bailly, as well as having incredible defensive and aerial abilities. The last defender is Ben Davies at left back who just about beats Danny Rose and Luke Shaw because of the consistency he has shown in the last few seasons.
Midfielders – Nemanja Matic, Christian Eriksen, Paul Pogba, Dele Alli
Nemanja Matic is in the team as the defensive midfielder, beating Eric Dier and Fred to the position because of his known qualities that have shown him be one of the best midfielders in the last five Premier League seasons. The two central midfielders are Christian Eriksen and Paul Pogba, who beat the likes of Moussa Dembele to the two places in the team. Firstly, they are both wonderful players who will be able to unlock any defence they come up against and also they are both great goalscorers from midfield. In attacking midfield it is Dele Alli as the Englishman is streets ahead of anyone else from United and Spurs in this position.
Strikers – Harry Kane and Romelu Lukaku
The strikers in the team are the obvious choices, with the goal scoring machines that are Romelu Lukaku and Harry Kane. The partnership may not be the most creative, but with Pogba, Eriksen and Alli behind them they are guaranteed to score an incredible amount of goals.
Thanks for reading, bye! Who do you thing will win tonight and what do you think about my choices?
