Keane beats Scholes to starting place as Old Trafford legends pick a combined United/Liverpool XI
You'd have half expected Denis Irwin and Bryan Robson to have selected a Manchester United heavy team when given the opportunity to pick a combined United/Liverpool XI.
But the pair of legends were actually pretty fair and went for a 50/50 split of outfield players from the glory days of Old Trafford and Anfield, i.e. Liverpool in the 70s & 80s and United in the 90s & 00s (which meant that Steven Gerrard couldn't get the shout).
The Reds dominate the back four with Phil Neal, Alan Hansen and Alan Kennedy who combine with Jaap Stam to create an impenetrable defence.
Central midfield could be a contentious issue with Paul Scholes relegated to the bench in favour of Roy Keane and Graeme Souness.
The wingers are pretty cut and dry with Cristiano Ronaldo and Ryan Giggs taking their places on the flanks.
Up front, it's two of the most popular players from the respective clubs as Eric Cantona and Kenny Dalglish lead the line.
The subs bench is jam packed with talent as Ray Clemence, Mark Lawrenson, Rio Ferdinand, Paul Scholes, Terry McDermott, Wayne Rooney and Ian Rush all able to save the hypothetical day.
