Manchester United host Liverpool on Super Sunday hoping to breathe new life into their season under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, but would any of their players get into Jurgen Klopp's side?
It has been a season of contrasting fortunes for two of England's most illustrious clubs, with leaders Liverpool looking to equal Manchester City's Premier League record for consecutive wins (18), while United are 12th and only two points above the relegation zone.
As they prepare to renew their rivalry, former Leeds and England full-back Danny Mills has selected his combined XI...
Adrian has come in and done incredibly well. I still think David de Gea is a very good goalkeeper but Alisson, if he's fit, without doubt makes my starting XI.
Andy Robertson is one of the best left-backs in Europe at the moment and Trent Alexander-Arnold's quality going forward is exceptional.
They work well with the goalkeeper and know where to be so that comes into play too. There was no doubt at all about the full-backs.
This is more controversial. If it was the start of the season with no games played, I would have gone for Virgil van Dijk and Harry Maguire.
But because Maguire has not been in fantastic form and because of the partnership Joel Matip has formed with Van Dijk and the performances he's put in over the first eight games of the season, I'm going to pair them together.
It's all Liverpool again. There's nobody at Man Utd who - in terms of performing on a consistent basis - would make it at the moment.
I'd even go as far as to say James Milner and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain would make the cut.
Jordan Henderson, Fabinho and Georginio Wijnaldum are playing really well. If Paul Pogba is in top form, then yes, of course he can get in, but he hasn't so far.
No surprise, I'm going with the Liverpool front three. They've been exceptional. Roberto Firmino, the way he drops into the hole, complements Sadio Mane and Mo Salah.
They've won eight straight games in the Premier League off the back of winning the Champions League and their form last term.
Man Utd are halfway down the table. There's a big gulf between the two at the moment. You might think about Marcus Rashford if one of the Liverpool three wasn't available but even he's not in great form so you might end up tweaking the formation and put Daniel James in there.
At the moment, you're saying Man Utd are two, three years behind Liverpool and Man City at the moment. It's a transition process.
If Liverpool don't win it will be a huge surprise. In recent times there would be several from either side but it's a clean sweep right now.
We've heard from Danny - now we'd like to hear from you. Is he right to overlook the entire Manchester United squad? Select your combined XI below…
