North London v Manchester v Merseyside XI: Who wins? (4)

Published 5 Comments


Candidates: Jan Vertonghen & Per Mertesacker, Vincent Kompany and Jonny Evans, and Sylvain Distin and Martin Skrtel.

So we are going to look at each team's centre-back pairings together. Kompany and Evans as the strongest duo this season from Manchester looks solid if not spectacular, leaving the north London and Mersyside pairings to fight it out for the right to be crowned winners.

Distin is hugely underrated while Skrtel has been a pillar at the back for many years at Anfield - and although he fell down the pecking order recently has seized his chance thanks to injuries suffered by others with both hands.

However, the north London pairing oozes class and consistency (even if it does lack a bit of pace).

Winners: Jan Vertonghen and Per Mertesacker
