Chelsea face Man United in the Premier League early kick-off this Saturday. Jose Mourinho look to get his first good result at the bridge since leaving them.

Here, Felix D’Great drafts out a combined XI of both teams.

Goalkeeper | De Gea | Man United
Might not be in the best if form this season but he is still the best in the league. David DeGea gets the nod over Chelsea New boy Kepa.

Right Back | Cesar Azpilicueta | Chelsea
The Chelsea captain has been a regular feature for Sarri’s team this season, delivering fine performances. He is preferred to United’s captain Antonio Valencia on the right side of defense.

Centre Back | Antonio Rudiger | Chelsea
One of the rejuvenated players under Sarri. Struggled for gsmetime under Conte but one of the first names on Sarri’s team. He’s enjoying his football again.

Centre Back | David Luiz | Chelsea
Luiz was close to leaving Chelsea last summer after a turbulent time with Conte last season. The Brazilian was convinced to stay by his new manager and benefiting immensely from that decision.

Left Back | Marcos Alonso| Chelsea
Alonso completes a back-line of four Chelsea players. He marginally nicks this one ahead of Luke Shaw who was reward with a new contract for his performances this season.

Midfield | Jorginho | Chelsea
The Italian pass master has been key to how Chelsea play, controlling things from deep. He makes the combined team effortlessly, would even make the team of the season so far.

Midfield | Ngolo Kante | Chelsea
New position, no problem. Under Sarri, Kante has evolved from being a midfield destroyer to a fine box-to-box player. He’s taken the new role in his strides, churning masterful performances like he’s been playing the role for years.

Midfield | Paul Pogba | Man United
Inconsistent some times but on his day, Pogba is one of the unplayable midfielders in the league. He’s come in with the goals and assists to this season.

Attack | Eden Hazard | Chelsea
Unarguably the best player in the division this season and maybe the world. Hazard has been flirting with Madrid off the field but on it, he’s been incredible for Chelsea.

Attack | Willian | Chelsea
In and out of the Chelsea team because of Pedro who has also played some good games this season.

Attack | Lukaku | Man United
Only the third United player in this team. The Belgian has four goals in eight league appearances, a figure that betters those of Morata and Giroud combined.
