Fan Park

Manchester United v Arsenal Combined XI

Manchester United and Arsenal will be going out guns blazing tonight in their FA Cup Quarter-final. The Fan Park Crew thought it would be good to pick a combined XI ahead of the battle.

Here is our side, picked in a 4-4-2 Diamond formation:

Goalkeeper: David De Gea

The Spaniard has been the Red Devils' best player this season, and arguably the best goalkeeper in the league.

Right-Back: Antonio Valencia

Not an outright right-back, but he has been very consistent this whole season and deserves his spot in the side.

Centre-Back: Laurent Koscielny

An underrated centre-back, Koscielny is the preferred option here in what has been a problem area for United.

Centre-Back: Marcos Rojo

There is not much choice between the two sides for solid, reliable centre-backs though Rojo has shown glimpses this season.

Left-Back: Kieran Gibbs

With Luke Shaw struggling with injury this season, and Ashley young playing more as a wing-back, we thought Gibbs just about walks into this role.

Defensive Midfielder: Daley Blind

The Dutchman has settled into life in England superbly and has been a real standout player for United.

Centre Midfield: Santi Cazorla

On his day, he is one of the best playmakers in the Premier League and has really upped his game in recent months for the Gunners.

Centre Midfield: Tomas Rosicky

The little Croatian has been in terrific form for the Gunners recently, and with Santi beside him, this side will be creating plenty of chances.

Attacking Midfielder: Marounne Fellaini

The Belgian midfielder has been used very effectively in an advanced position, and has really proven his doubters wrong this season.

Striker: Wayne Rooney

Showing what he can do when played upfront, Wayne Rooney offers quality and tenacity when played up front.

Striker: Olivier Giroud

Despite an awful performance against AS Monaco, Olivier Giroud has responded superbly since then and has had a far better season than the highly disappointing Radamel Falcao and Robin van Persie.

What would your combined XI look like?
