LIVERPOOL and Manchester City are set to play out an epic end to the season.
Just ONE point separates the pair in the Premier League title race.
And they will also battle each other at Wembley next month for a spot in the FA Cup final.
But a combined SunSport XI between the teams shows that Liverpool marginally edge out City in terms of quality.
Both teams boast incredible goalkeepers in Brazil internationals Alisson and Ederson.
But it’s the City stopper who nicks it due to conceding just 18 league goals this term – two less than Alisson and the lowest total in the Prem.
As for the defence, Trent Alexander-Arnold is preferred to Kyle Walker at right-back.
And Joao Cancelo beats Andy Robertson as the team’s marauding left-back.
It’s a bit more straightforward in central defence, despite Joel Matip and Aymeric Laporte impressing.
Ruben Dias and Virgil van Djik are arguably the best two centre-backs in the world, let alone England.
And they would be shielded by Liverpool anchorman Fabinho, who narrowly sees off Rodri.
However, it’s a one-two in central midfield for City.
Kevin De Bruyne and Bernardo Silva have formed a fabulous partnership.
And they have shown better consistency than Jordan Henderson and Thiago Alcantara.
But it’s Liverpool all the way in the final third.
They are the league’s top scorers with 75 goals – seven more than City.
And Mo Salah is an automatic shoe-in on the right flank.
Up top is slightly tricker, with neither side boasting a classic No9.
But Diogo Jota has become a key figure in Liverpool’s Quadruple hunt.
And he gets the nod after scoring his 19th goal of the season to dump Nottingham Forest out of the FA Cup.
Phil Foden, Raheem Sterling, Jack Grealish and Riyad Mahrez are also fine players.
But they are yet to reach the levels of Sadio Mane and Luis Diaz this term.
And in what some may call a controversial pick, SunSport has opted for Diaz on the left wing.
The Colombian has simply looked sensational just two months into his Anfield career.
And he also netted 16 Porto goals this term before his Liverpool transfer.
Having only turned 25 years old in January, Diaz hasn’t even hit his prime years yet either.
But City and Liverpool have enough top players to create a whole new XI.
And that one would also be up there challenging for the league title.
