Ahead of this weekend’s Premier League showdown between Manchester United and Liverpool, Merson picked his combined team using both sets of players.

Marcus Rashford leads the line, with Liverpool’s attacking trio of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane behind him. Combined teams are always a matter of opinion and there were a few of Merson’s inclusions that supporters began to argue about.
