Arsenal travel to Old Trafford on Saturday to face Manchester United, as Jose Mourinho and Arsene Wenger reignite a fierce rivalry. But while those two managers go head-to-head in the dugout – we’ve turned to a former Premier League manager (and Manchester United midfielder) Paul Ince to get his thoughts on who would make a combined XI of both teams. Don’t worry, we threatened to cut his wages if he showed too much Red Devils bias, so we’re fairly confident this is an honest and accurate teamsheet.
There are some decisions that raise a few eyebrows. Incey thinks Petr Cech gets the nod over David De Gea, while Antonio Valencia only just squeaked in ahead of Hector Bellerin. Meanwhile there’s no space in the team for Wayne Rooney, but Paul was drooling over a front five that included the attacking flair of Paul Pogba, Mesut Ozil, Alexis Sanchez, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and… er… Theo Walcott.
Think you can do better? Has Incey got it wrong? Have your say on Twitter over @PaddyPower or simply vent your anger in person to a stranger at the bus stop. In a world where nobody seems to look up from their phones, it’d be good to encourage some face-to-face moaning.
