Rojo, Burdisso and Di Maria Argentina

Angel Di Maria and Alberto Moreno miss out in our combined XI ahead of Sunday's huge Premier League clash.

David de Gea: Simon Mignolet has been much improved of late but the Manchester United goalkeeper has been unstoppable this season - often simply a one-man team.

Martin Skrtel: Has had his struggles for Liverpool but is arguably the most solid centre-back of either side. United's defenders have largely been poor this term and Skrtel has been more consistent than his defensive team-mates at Anfield.

Emre Can: Edges Mamadou Sakho in this combined XI due to his impressive ability on the ball, as well as his versatility.

Phil Jones: It's a toss-up between Man United's centre-backs, who can look Champions League or League Two quality depending on their mood. Jones edges Smalling.

Ashley Young: Keeps Alberto Moreno out due to the 29-year-old's superb season. How Young didn't make the England squad, only Roy Hodgson will know.

Raheem Sterling: The Liverpool man certainly has the talent to get into this XI.

Jordan Henderson: Has proved Sir Alex Ferguson's criticism wrong for good.

Marouane Fellaini: One of Manchester United's surprise stars this season, if not Louis van Gaal's best player.

Philippe Coutinho: An absolute no brainer when it comes to a combined XI. The Brazilian may go through patches - but right now is in a good patch. And, on one of those, Coutinho is unstoppable.

Wayne Rooney: Questions are often asked of the Manchester United captain but his recent form, added to his vast experience, earn him a place.

Daniel Sturridge: The Liverpool striker may not yet be at his best after returning from injury but is still good enough to get into most teams.
