Manchester United v Manchester City Combined XI

The Manchester derby will be played later today and it’s become a little tradition to make a combined XI when two big teams face each other.

City have won the last five outings in this derby, but arrive into this one in the worst possible form. United, meanwhile, have been getting stronger week in and week out.

Let’s not delay this much longer… Here is our combined XI

Goalkeeper: David De Gea

De Gea has arguably been United’s best player and has been a million times better in goals than Joe Hart this season.

Right-Back: Pablo Zabaleta

The Argentine is a natural right-back and we feel he is a more stable option than Antonio Valencia.

Centre-Back: Chris Smalling

The England defender has improved in recent weeks, but time will tell whether he can hold down a permanent spot in the side.

Centre-Back: Martin Demichelis

The Argentine has arguably been City’s best defender this season, considering that Vincent Kompany has just been terrible.

Left-Back: Daley Blind

The utility player has really looked at home at left- back this season and he has done a great job in shutting up shop down that left-hand side.

Centre-Midfield: Michael Carrick

Carrick has been a revelation for United since his return from injury and he has brought great balance to the side.

Centre-Midfield: Ander Herrera

The Spaniard has hit a rich vein of form. Not only has he become a holding midfielder, he has also scored a few crucial goals.

Right-Wing: Juan Mata

Playing just in front of Carrick and Herrera has brought the best out of him and it has also allowed him to create chances as well as score more goals.

Attacking-Midfielder: Wayne Rooney

Some might think it’s strange that we have picked him here, but he loves working behind a striker and can contribute in all phases of the game.

Left-Wing: David Silva

He has been one of City’s main playmakers this season and is able to rotate positions with Rooney and Mata if need be.

Striker: Sergio Aguero

It only takes a split second for Aguero to turn nothing into something.

What do you think of the side?
