This weekend’s meeting between Arsenal and Manchester United is already being billed as a potential title decider even though we’re only eight weeks into the new campaign.
Only United strengthened significantly during the transfer window, but how many of those new faces would fit into a combined XI with this weekend’s opponents?
See below to find out…
GK: David de Gea – Man United
Despite Petr Cech recently joining The Gunners, De Gea is the only real choice to take the number one spot.
LB: Daley Blind – Man United
He may be a utility man, but the Dutchman has proved that he is more than capable of putting in a star turn in the left-back slot.
CB: Laurent Koscielny – Arsenal
Koscielny will be forced to sit out of this weekend’s meeting, but he could quite easily walk straight into United’s starting line up if given the chance.
CB: Chris Smalling – Man United
The England international has enjoyed some string early season form so far, and undoubtedly earns his spot in this combined XI.
RB: Mateo Darmian – Man United
Darmain has taken to Premier League football like a duck to water, and his classy displays have helped United tighten up at the back.
