Chelsea are three points behind United and a win with a three-goal-margin will take them above the latter going into the last ten games of the season.

One man who will be key in helping the Blues achieve that is Belgian star Eden Hazard, who has been in sublime form this season.

On United's front, their star Paul Pogba has been relatively indifferent - at least of late. Can either of them lift their sides to a crucial victory?

Here's a look at a combined team of Manchester United and Chelsea players, chosen considering ability as well as recent form.

With both teams possessing quite a few top-quality players and only 11 in a team, it is inevitable that some of them have to miss out. Find out if this is the team you would go for.


Goalkeeper:

Manchester United v Stoke City - Premier League
David de Gea has been Manchester United's savior on countless occasions

David De Gea

There really can't be another choice when the Spaniard's in the mix. He has been in devastating form this season (again) and has produced stunning saves to rescue United time and again.

It is hard to imagine them fighting for a Champions League spot without De Gea's heroics.

Yes, Thibaut Courtois is a top-class keeper as well, but almost nobody will argue against naming De Gea as the best in the league, if not the world.

In the Premier League, he has the most clean sheets (15), joint-second most saves (87, along with Jordan Pickford) and has the best save percentage of 80.6. He is simply the best shot-stopper in town.

With Liverpool, Chelsea and Spurs breathing down their necks, United will need their 'keeper to continue his rich vein of form to retain their Champions League spot.
