ST: Wayne Rooney v Karim Benzema

Finally, we come to the position of out-and-out striker. There were a few Premier League players under consideration here, but Rooney - fresh from that audacious lobbed goal from almost halfway against West Ham on Saturday - gets the nod.

Barcelona, led by Messi and Neymar in an attacking sense, do not often operate with a classic central striker, so Benzema - who had admittedly been in good form this season - is chosen without too much of a battle.

Who wins?

With the scores tied at 5-5, this is the all-important clash - one not made any easier by the fact that both men notched a brace during this weekend's action.

However, all things considered, we are going to go with Rooney who has shown more consistency over the years than Benzema.

FINAL SCORE:

PREMIER LEAGUE XI 6-5 EL CLASICO XI

The slightest of victories for the Premier League XI.
