Battle! United v City, but who comes out on top on paper?
While Manchester City are the Premier League champions, and rivals United have failed to qualify for European competition, the enormous summer in the transfer market by the latter brings them (on paper) pretty level in terms of their strongest possible starting XIs.
Here’s the players we’d choose in each position if we had the luxury of choosing from both squads!
Goalkeeper: David de Gea vs Joe Hart
Vote: de Gea
Slightly less error prone than his English opposite number.
