Jamie Carragher And Roy Keane Pick Their Combined Manchester United 99 and Liverpool 20 Teams

Jamie Carragher And Roy Keane Pick Their Combined Manchester United 99 and Liverpool 20 Teams

Manchester United legend Roy Keane and Liverpool legend 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 Premier League history and Liverpool's current team is certainly getting close to at least equalling if not bettering them.

Many have discussed who from each team would get in the other and Keane and Carragher discussed their teams on Monday Night Football, with the United man aghast at his 'opponent' for not including Ryan Giggs.

The former United man 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, Andrew Cole.

But Carragher was more balanced, but still picked seven of the Treble winning side; Peter Schmeichel, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Jaap Stam, Virgil Van Dijk, Dennis Irwin, David Beckham, Roy Keane, Paul Scholes, Sadio Mane, Dwight Yorke, Mo Salah.

Carragher even took a brilliant screenshot of the best moment of the segment, the Irishman's reaction to hearing about Giggs' omission, and has made it his new Twitter profile picture.

The former England defender raised a valuable point that might be the crux of the issue with Jurgen Klopp's team playing a more modern 4-3-3 system compared to the 4-4-2 United used to win the league, FA Cup and Champions League 21 years ago.

David Beckham would be one who wouldn't work on the right wing in Liverpool's current system but does for United's, however Carragher did still find room for Becks in the centre of midfield.

The pair were in the studio together as the United took on Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, in a controversial night in the Premier League.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side won 2-0 but were lucky not to have Harry Maguire sent off, with the defender going on to score the second goal, whilst the Blues had two goals disallowed, with the first one being a marginal decision.
