Combined XI of Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League
Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur will lock horns in one of the mouthwatering clashes of Gameweek twenty-two of the Premier League 2018-19 campaign. The fixture is crucial to both the sides for two different reasons. A win for Spurs would close the gap between them and the league leaders, Liverpool, whereas for United it's about fighting for the fourth place.
The rivalry between the two sides is historically not as significant as few other rivalries in the Premier League. However, in recent times, Spurs has surpassed United and challenging for the title. Both the teams have enough firepower in them to turn any game on its head. If the likes of Kane, Eriksen, and Ali provides an attacking threat for Pochettino; Rashford, Martial and Pogba are the most significant weapons Solskjaer has in his armory.
Hence without much ado, let's look at the combined XI of Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur players in a 4-3-3 formation.
#11 GK - David De Gea (Manchester United)
The Spaniard is not only the best goalkeeper in the Premier League but one of the best in the world. His agility, reflexes and shot-stopping prowess had bailed United out on numerous occasions.
When David first came into the scene, he was a skinny lad from Atletico Madrid who struggled in his initial days at Manchester United. Despite a poor start to his United career, Sir Alex Ferguson backed his potential and gave him numerous opportunities to improve.
Gradually, he made himself home at the Theatre of Dreams becoming the first player ever to win three consecutive Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year award at Manchester United. He also won the Premier League golden glove award last season keeping 18 clean sheets in the process. United has a fragile back line which makes De Gea's role even more significant in the upcoming fixture.
