Best Combined XI From Manchester City and Liverpool – SAS And City Defenders Dominating the Lineup

published :

With both Liverpool and Manchester City being the front runners of this season’s Premier League we at Soccersouls decided to make a combined XI from these two sides.

Formation- 4-4-1-1


Joe Hart (Manchester City) – While this was a tough one simply for the fact that Simon Mignolet has been performing very well for Liverpool as well, the simple fact is that Joe Hart, ever since he was dropped earlier and then came back, has been in spectacular form and if one has to choose between the two it has to be Joe Hart for his sheer consistency for the last few months.


Vincent Kompany (Manchester City) – The Belgian has been a rock at the back and is one of the best central defenders in the league if not the world. He provides stability and great leadership to any and every team he plays for.


Martin Skrtel (Liverpool) – A bit of a controversial choice but Skrtel has played really well for the much maligned Liverpool defense. While critics have not gone easy on the Liverpool defense, the Slovakian has gone a bit under the radar despite his fine defending and his goals at some vital times.

Pablo Zabaleta (Manchester City) – Zabaleta has been a rock for Manchester City in the right back position. Rarely has he been caught out of position and despite such solid defensive showings he has also made some great runs in the wings to provide support to the likes of Jesus Navas. In fact his goal scoring record for a fullback is amongst the best in the league.

Aleksandar Kolarov (Manchester City) – While in previous seasons he had been used mostly as an utility player this is the season he has made the position of left back his own. Brilliant going forward, he has improved the defensive side of his game as well. Also combine his accurate free kicks and Manchester City has quite a gem in Kolarov in their ranks.
