Good lad, Thommo!
We can always trust our former captain to back his club on Sky Sports, and the European Cup winner has done just that when asked to select his combined Liverpool and Manchester united XI ahead of Monday’s clash.
Jose Mourinho’s men head to Anfield for the first fixture between the two clubs since last season’s spicy Europa League double-header, which we came out on top in.
Thompson has picked de Gea in goal, which is completely fair enough, but gone with three Liverpool defenders in the back-line. Considering the fact we haven’t kept a clean-sheet this term, we think United’s Eric Bailly is a tad unlucky to miss out. In the middle, he’s gone for Henderson and Pogba, before selecting our three exhilarating attackers behind Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
A tasty looking side, certainly – but we wouldn’t bring any of United’s players into our squad. We’re happy with what we’ve got and more importantly, so is Jurgen Klopp.
LFC heavy for Thommo ❤️ pic.twitter.com/2UGZmbLIrg
