Manchester City v Liverpool: Stat-Based Combined XI

Will it be Blue or Red this that lifts the Capital One Cup trophy this weekend as Manchester City and Liverpool go head to head at Wembley?

In the build up to the final, Oulala Games have looked at the stats to reveal the best combined XI based on performance data from the Premier League.

For each position they have put two players from opposing sides against each other and analysed key areas to reveal the top eleven.

City will probably go into the match as the slight favourites, a theory that is backed up by the fact that the majority of the combined XI below is Blue. However, there are one or two surprising omissions…
