Opinion: The dream combined Tottenham and Liverpool XI from this season

Tottenham Hotspur take on Liverpool this week in what has become a top of the table clash, with the two clubs currently equal on points at the summit of the table.

We wanted to take a look at our dream combined XI from this season alone, taking into account form and injuries for both sides.

Despite Hugo coming in for some undeserved stick at the weekend, few could argue that he has not been one of the best keepers in the Premier League this season. Mourinho has simplified the Frenchman’s game and Spurs are reaping the rewards.

In terms of a back two, Eric Dier and Toby Alderweireld are the only real choices. They represent the meanest defence in the entire league and, with their injury problems, Liverpool have few options to put forward.

At left-back, we have gone for the experience of Andrew Robertson over the still relatively raw talents of Sergio Reguilon, while Serge Aurier gets the nod over an inconsistent and injury-stricken Trent Alexander-Arnold on the other side.

In the centre of the park, a combination of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Jordan Henderson would win most battles in the engine room, although Moussa Sissoko is unlucky to be dropped.

In the chief creative role, we have gone for Tanguy Ndombele thanks to his resurgence this season, along with the lack of form for both Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino who could have taken up an attacking slot.

The front three really speaks for itself, as we name Harry Kane, Mo Salah, and Heung-min Son, enough to win any game of football on their own.

What changes would you make?
