The clash of Liverpool and Manchester City at Anfield tomorrow could well decide the destination of the Premier League and Michael Owen has chosen his best possible eleven.

The former Liverpool hotshot is eagerly looking forward to the mouth-watering game and says it is fitting that these two will lock horns given the entertainment they have provided all season.

“The brand of football favoured by Liverpool and Manchester City has illuminated this season’s competition, the desire of their managers to be bold in their efforts to win games worthy of the applause I have no doubt will greet both teams, whatever the outcome,” he wrote in his column in The Telegraph.

“This is a showdown between the two most entertaining sides in the country and – should this prove a decisive fixture – the winners will deserve the title.”

On the topic of the crucial game, the former England striker also chose what he considered to be the strongest starting team with both squads available.

Simon Mignolet and Glen Johnson can consider themselves unfortunate to miss out, while the exclusion of red-hot Daniel Sturridge is the most obvious omission, with Sergio Aguero getting the nod.

“A toss of the coin between Agüero and Sturridge this season. Agüero wins because he is world-class and Sturridge is just getting there,” he explained.

“I’d have Sturridge as my first choice sub, though!”

Michael Owen’s XI:

Joe Hart; Pablo Zabaleta, Vincent Kompany, Martin Skrtel, Aleksander Kolarov; Raheem Sterling, Steven Gerrard, Yaya Toure, David Silva; Sergio  Aguero, Luis Suarez.
