Jason McAteer's combined Liverpool and Manchester United team will annoy the Old Trafford faithful

This is not just a Europa League clash - it's Liverpool v Manchester United. Jurgen Klopp has admitted that it is the 'mother of all battles' while Louis van Gaal stoked the flames by suggesting both teams need to stop living in the past.
Now, former Ireland and Liverpool star Jason McAteer has stoked the flames even more, well in Manchester anyway.
Combined teams are a regular feature now ahead of mouth-watering games like tonight's mammoth Anfield encounter so McAteer has compiled his Liverpool and Manchester United ultimate 11.
But the likes of David de Gea, Wayne Rooney and Daley Blind have failed to make the grade. In fact, no Manchester United player makes the team.
Instead, that old joker McAteer has chosen: Mignolet; Clyne, Sakho, Lovren, Moreno; Can Henderson, Firmino, Coutinho, Lallana; Sturridge.
