Liverpool vs Chelsea combined XI: Reds lead attack line, Kante partners Fabinho

  /  HollowPoett

UCL champion Liverpool are going to face UEL winner Chelsea for the UEFA Super Cup in Istanbul at 21:00 CET.

Both teams will be full of optimism ahead of the showdown, but which players would make a combined XI?

Here All Football select 11 players from these two clubs' squad to form the combined XI.

Goalkeeper: Kepa

Kepa has been a force to reckon with for Chelsea. If Alisson was fit, it would have been a different story but the Blues goalie certainly has an edge over Adrian.

Defenders: Robertson, Van Dijk, Rudiger, Alexander-Arnold

Given Chelsea's demise against Man United three days ahead of this game, the make-up of the backline is likely to be equally one-sided with Liverpool's strongest defence filling all four positions.

However, Lampard brings Rudiger with the team in squad and he possibly returns to Blues starting XI in Liverpool clash.

In the left side, we have the Scottish Andrew Robertson, who is considered as one of the best left-backs in recent times.

So the defence line is made up with Robertson, Van Dijk, Rudiger & Alexander-Arnold.

Midfielders: Kante, Wijnaldum, Fabinho

Both teams are well-stocked with options going forward, and it has left us in a position where we feel obliged to pick a two-man midfield consisting of Fabinho and N'Golo Kante, players who would be able to complement each other with their contrasting attributes.

However, Kante suffers another injury blow during Man Utd clash and it is doubtable whether he will be able to feature or not.

Forwards: Mane, Firmino, Salah

It's unsurprising that Liverpool lead the combined XI's attack line.

While Sadio Mane remains on the left, Roberto Firmino would be in the number-9 role with Salah in the right.
