For those of you who missed it, earlier today, Sky Sports asked pundit Danny Mills for his combined Liverpool and Manchester United XI ahead of the big game between the two clubs on Sunday afternoon.

Mills didn’t select a single United player in his XI, which, as you can probably imagine, didn’t go down too well with plenty of their supporters, including Mark Goldbridge of The United Stand, who tweeted this:

However, plenty of Liverpool fans were quick to jump in to stick up for Joel Matip, who they believe is more than deserving of his place.

It wasn’t just Liverpool fans too, as neutral supporters weighed in with their opinions.

Whilst Harry Maguire is clearly a very good player, Joel Matip is more than worthy of a place in a combined XI ahead of the Englishman. Matip has been voted PFA Player of the Month and has arguably been Liverpool’s best player this season.

As for Paul Pogba, he has a lot of ability and an argument based purely on ability would be an interesting one but football is about more than that and as such, it makes sense why Mills selected Jordan Henderson and Gini Wijnaldum ahead of him.

Who’s the better player?

Joel Matip

Harry Maguire
