Tottenham Hotspur face Liverpool in the final of the Champions League on June 1 in Madrid, as both sides fight it out to become Champions of Europe.

Both the Reds and the Lilywhites have enjoyed incredible European campaigns this season, but only one can lift the trophy.

However, what would a combined Champions League Final XI look like? And how many trophies would this amazing hybrid win?

I have gone for a very attacking 4-1-3-2, with Alisson Becker between the sticks over Hugo Lloris, purely because of the Frenchman’s high-profile mistakes this season.

At left-back, I have put Andy Robertson, in my mind one of the best in the world in his position. Left centre-back is no competition, with Jan Vertonghen also one of the best left-footed centre-backs in world football. The Belgian has also had an incredible Champions League campaign.

Talking of great seasons, few have had better than Virgil Van Dijk, who sits in above Alderweireld in the right centre-back position, a tough choice.

Right-back was less difficult, as Trent Alexander-Arnold walks it by a country mile. Sissoko is also a clear favourite to hold down the central midfield position on his own after his performances this season.

For my playmaker, I have gone for Christian Eriksen, as he can always make something out of nothing, even in bad form.

On the wings, we have Heung-min Son and Sadio Mane for pace, power, and goals, while Harry Kane and Mo Salah up top speak for themselves.

This side might concede a few goals, but they would blast most other teams off the park.
