Carragher names his XI of the Premier League season so far

Carragher names his XI of the Premier League season so far”

Ahead of the eagerly-anticipated clash at Anfield, we're asking you to pick a team made up of players from the two clubs, who have starred in the Premier League era.

Chelsea are the most represented team (4), with Tottenham (3) and Liverpool (2) the only other clubs to have players selected.

Pundit Jamie Carragher has told The Telegraph that he feels Toby Alderweireld has been the Premier League's outstanding centre back in 2017 - and team-mate Jan Vertonghen isn't far behind.

Watch Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher on a special Liverpool v Manchester United Countdown show from Anfield from 6pm on Sky Sports Premier League on Friday night.

In goal, Carragher opted for David de Gea, the Manchester United and Spain 'keeper widely considered to be one of the best in the world and arguably the best in the Premier League.

Left-back: Marcos Alonso (Chelsea)'I think he has been outstanding in the 12 months he has been here. "A great defensive record under Mauricio Pochettino".

I'm going to go with someone who doesn't really play at right-back because his Chelsea team play a slightly different system with three at the back, but Azpilicueta has to go in there as he is one of the best defenders in the Premier League. Paul Pogba or Philippe Coutinho? I think he is going to be a future Player of the Year contender'.

The front three features Eden Hazard, Sadio Mane and Harry Kane.
