Manchester United legend Roy Keane and ex-Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher picked their combined XIs from their two sides’ most successful Premier League teams.
Sir Alex Ferguson’s 1998/99 Treble winning side are considered one of the best teams in English football history. The only side to win the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League.
Liverpool’s current team will try achieve that but are likely to fall short. Still, it won’t be nice watching them lift their first league title in 30 years this May.
However, many have discussed who from each team would get in the other and Keane and Carragher discussed their teams on Monday Night Football after United’s 2-0 win over Chelsea.
Keane picked an all United team other than Virgil van Dijk coming in for Ronny Johnson.
Peter Schmeichel, Gary Neville, Jaap Stam, Virgil van Dijk, Dennis Irwin, David Beckham, Roy Keane, Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs, Dwight Yorke, Andy Cole.
But Carragher brought more balance to the table — picking seven of the Treble winning side and four of the current Liverpool crop.
Peter Schmeichel, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Jaap Stam, Virgil van Dijk, Dennis Irwin, David Beckham, Roy Keane, Paul Scholes, Sadio Mane, Dwight Yorke, Mo Salah.
The best of Roy Keane and @Carra23! 😂

Carragher took the Twitter afterwards to update his profile picture to Keane’s reaction to hearing about Ryan Giggs’ omission.
