It promises to be a hard-fought battle when Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho hosts his former team Chelsea at 14:05 GMT on Sunday.

It is third versus fourth, Mourinho versus bitter rival Antonio Conte, and victory for Mourinho’s team would take them back into second above Liverpool in the Premier League table.

More than 60,000 of you voted – but who did you pick in your combined Manchester United-Chelsea XI?

The results were fairly even, with six Manchester United players and five from Chelsea.

And it’s good news for Paul Pogba. Despite Mourinho sidelining the £89m signing in recent games, you thought he was good enough to feature in midfield.

But there were six other players more popular, according to your selections.

Chelsea forward Eden Hazard topped your picks, closely followed by United goalkeeper David de Gea.

Next came Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante, ahead of Blues defender Cesar Azpilicueta and new Old Trafford recruit Alexis Sanchez.

Blues defender Marcos Alonso was also selected more often than Pogba.

Players such as Alvaro Morata, Cesc Fabregas, Nemanja Matic and Marcus Rashford did not come close to making your XI.
