Manchester United host Liverpool this weekend in one of the most anticipated fixtures of the Premier League season.

Both sides head into the match at Old Trafford on the back of defeats, ensuring the importance of gaining a result has only increased.

Louis van Gaal did the double over Manchester United's fiercest rivals last season, winning 3-0 at Old Trafford and 2-1 at Anfield.

So it seems only right that our combined XI features more United players than it does Liverpool.

Our selection is made up based on form so far this season and includes only those available for selection for this weekend's game, which means there is no Philippe Coutinho due to his suspension.

See who we selected in a combined XI below...
