Manchester United-Liverpool Combined XI by Phil Thompson’s picks

Let’s challenge the Anfield legend, Phil Thompson, to pick up his best combined squad XI from Manchester United and Liverpool ahead of Sunday’s clash, which is going to be live on Sky Sports 1 HD. Some might get surprised to see Thommo’s whole backline comprises of Liverpool defenders, with Liverpool heading into Super Sunday’s clash with seven clean sheets form the previous nine premier league games.

Liverpool manager, Roy Hodgson, will also be encouraged to see Thommo has played for an entirely English midfielder, by which he chose all four named in the previous England squad, while there are two homegrown players set forward in attack. The soccer Saturday pundit is preferring Brendan Rodger’s 3-4-4 system rather than the 4-3-3 formation which has been successfully deployed by LvG in the Manchester United’s victory over Tottenham last week. Thommo’s combined XI squad entail David de Gea, Martin Skrtel, Emra Can, Mamadou Sakho, Michael Carrick, Raheem Sterling, Johan Anderson, Ashley Young, Wayne Rooney, Phillipe Coutinho, and Daniel Sturridge. He said to Sky Sport that the defence picks itself with the Reds’ defensive record of late, while the Red Devil have had a number of changes at the back. The only possible decision was between Dejan Lovrena nd Sakho, who has been proven effective.

Thommo thought that Michael Carrick was man of the match against Spurs last weekend and his absence has been a massive loss for the red devil, while Henderson has been playing incredibly fascinatingly for Liverpool. Phil Thomson said that he was backing Liverpool to win by 2-0 with Sturridge scoring first. Yough had been one of the Red devil’s bright spots in this season, said Thommo. He mentioned that Sterling had adapted to his new role, a wing-back. This allows Rodgers to use Adam Lallana and Coutinho in the best position they can play. In attack, Sturride has been known to get at his best form, which is actually natural for player who has gone through a long absence. However, there is no doubt that Wayne Rooney can always spark terror to the Red’s back part. He is certainly the best in attack. On the other hand, the absence of Robin van Persia and Falcao denotes a great advantage for Wayne Rooney as he can get lots of chance to show what he got. Rooney tends to drop deep when he is paired with Ven Persie while he has no understanding with Radamel Falcao.
