Published 4 Comments

Football News

Manchester United travel to White Hart Lane this weekend and both teams will be desperate to secure all three points in north London. 

Both clubs have had inconsistent starts to the season and are in need of victory as they look to climb the Premier League table. 

So, ahead of the game, GMS have picked our combined Manchester United and Tottenham XI.

Here it is: 

Goalkeeper: David de Gea

Manchester United's young Spanish goalkeeper David de Gea just pips Hugo Lloris to the No.1 spot. 

The Red devils 'keeper has been in sensational form for David Moyes' side so far this season and without a doubt can become one of the world's greatest goalkeepers in years to come. 

Right-back: Kyle Walker 

Kyle Walker slots in nicely at right-back in the combine XI. The England international has shown great promise in north London and looks another fine prospect. 

Now a key member of the England national setup, Walker has made the right-back position his own at White Hart Lane.

Centre-back: Nemanja Vidic 

The Manchester United captain, when fit, is still one of the finest defenders in the world.

A powerful and dominant figure, the great Serb still has a lot to offer at Old Trafford. 

Centre-back: Jan Vertonghen

Vertonghen may have to settle for a left-back place in the Tottenham side on occasions, but the Belgian defender has more than enough about him to play at the heart of Spurs' side for many years to come. 

A calm and assured presence, Vertonghen has great quality and continues to impress in the Premier League. 

Left-back: Patrice Evra

Patrice Evra, for many years has been a consistent performer and a main stay in the Manchester United team. 

The Red Devils left-back is still proving a valuable member of the team this season and is still one of the finest wing-backs in the division. 

Right-wing: Antonio Valencia 

Antonio Valencia is starting to get back to his consistent best and when at the peak of his powers, he's an extremely hard customer to deal with. 

He's not afraid to run at defenders directly and with great pace, the Ecuadorian international can frighten the life out of his opponents. 

Central-midfield: Michael Carrick 

Unfortunately for Michael Carrick and Manchester United, the midfielder is injured for this weekends clash. 

However the England international has been a fine performer for the Old Trafford outfit over the last few years. His performances in the middle of the park have kept things ticking over at the Theatre of Dreams. 

Central-midfield: Moussa Dembélé

Manchester United missed a trick when they didn't battle Tottenham for the signature of Moussa Dembele. 

The powerful midfielder is strong and a great presence in the centre of the park and he's a key man to Spurs' play. 

Left-wing: Andros Townsend

Townsend is certainly more effective coming in from the right, however the England international will have to settle with a place out on the left in this XI. 

He could certainly put in a great shift on either wing and he has the ability to fire his side to glory this weekend.

Striker: Robin van Persie

Manchester United's lethal Dutchman, Robin van Persie just hasn't stopped scoring since making the move to Old Trafford. 

The striker is an injury doubt for this weekend's clash and David Moyes will be hoping he is ready to take on Tottenham this weekend. 

Striker: Wayne Rooney

Wayne Rooney can't be left out of this XI. The Red Devils forward has been in sensational form this season and keeps scoring and assisting for the champions. 

If he takes his fine form into this Sunday's clash, then it will be hard to stop him and United.
