Liverpool/Spurs combined XI: Does Daniel Sturridge or Harry Kane make it?
Tonight's clash between Spurs and Liverpool at Anfield is a mouthwatering prospect but which team has the edge when we combine the side's to pick our best XI.
Goalkeeper: Hugo Lloris
The French shot-stopper, renowned for his bravery, takes the spot over Simon Mignolet due to his consistency, or Mignolet's lack of.
Quick off his line, reliable in the air, Lloris is between the sticks.
Left back: Danny Rose
A position where both sides are experimenting with youngsters - Danny Rose and Alberto Moreno are a close match - I went with Rose due to his defensive ability. Moreno often gets stranded too far up the field leaving the defence vulnerable to counterattacks.
Centre Half Pairing: Martin Skrtel and Jan Vertonghen
Skrtel and Vertonghan make the cut. Both players are the only real definitive starters in their sides ever-changing defences. They are both more experienced than other youngsters such as Eric Dier and better on the ball than the likes of Sakho.
Right back: Kyle Walker
Often providing lethal crosses for Spurs, Walker's sheer pace makes him a danger to even the top teams. His positional sense is good and is rarely caught out. A clear winner for the right back slot. Glen Johnson has been out of sorts for a very long time.
Holding midfielder: Jordan Henderson
The young workhorse has given Liverpool a base in the midfield from which to attack. Often criticised for his lack of footballing ability, Henderson makes up for it in his work ethic and would be the perfect partner for his compatriot Steven Gerrard in the middle of the field.
Holding midfielder: Steven Gerrard
Losing out on his regular first-team spot this season, Gerrard confirmed his move to MLS side LA Galaxy at the end of this campaign. However his passing ability is still first class and he can still split a defence with one of his trademark long diagonals. A touch of class in the midfield, the English Pirlo has Henderson to cover for his decreasing athletic ability.
Attacking midfielder: Christian Eriksen
The Danish playmaker has turned miracle worker numerous times this season to dig Spurs out of desperate situations.
Eriksen has covered more ground than any other player in the league this season and when you work that hard you're destined to catch a few breaks to go with his undoubted ability.
Attacking midfielder: Phillipe Coutinho
Arguably the best dribbler in the league, his nimble feet can beat defenders at will and are a nightmare for your typical English centre half. Coutinho is yet to hit the highs of last season but with Sturridge back in the side he should return to form.
Attacking midfielder: Raheem Sterling
After Suarez left for sunny Barcelona, a lot of the expectation was passed on to Sterling with Sturridge on the injury list. The England international has settled in well up top and caused havoc with his blistering pace. With Kane's power and Sterling's pace the couple would be a lethal combination up top.
Striker: Harry Kane
Kane has come into his own this season, raking up a colossal 24 goals in all competitions. His double in the North London derby at the weekend brought him up to 12 Premier league goals from 10 starts, the shining light in Spurs team this season and the catalyst for their Top Four push.
