It's the big one this weekend. A potential title decider will be played between Liverpool vs Man City, in a game which not only attracts both sets of supporters, but supporters of the Premier League in general. The two recent rivals have had many cagey affairs before but as we head into this one, Rush The Kop has come up with its combined Liverpool vs Man City lineup.

Before we jump into the combined Liverpool vs Man City lineup, let's address the ground rules. Firstly, it will only feature players available for the game this weekend. Therefore, any injured or suspended players will not feature. Secondly, it is based on CURRENT form, so it may not be indicative of the players' careers. Lastly, it will be in a 4-3-3 formation, to fit in as much quality as possible.

Without further ado, here is the combined Liverpool vs Man City lineup...

Combined Liverpool vs Man City lineup

GK - Ederson. It would've been a tight battle between the two Brazilian goalkeepers and had Allison been fit, I would've chosen him. In his absence though, Ederson gets the spot between the sticks.

RB - Kyle Walker. Again, Liverpool's best option is injured, so another place goes to Man City. Kyle Walker has been great this season, so Liverpool may have a tough time breaking him down but it will prove for some interesting battles.

CB - Virgil van Dijk. One of those players who I put in this list without even looking at his competitors. World-class.

CB - Ruben Dias. City's centre-back has had a great season so far, so he makes up the second centre-back slot.

LB - Andy Robertson. Since returning from injury, Robertson has been in exceptional form. He's one of the best full-backs in the world, so he had to make this combined lineup.

CM - Kevin De Bruyne. There shouldn't be any arguments here - De Bruyne is the greatest midfielder in the world and one of the best in Premier League history.

CM - Rodri. Again, it's almost impossible to take this spot away from Rodri.

CM - Alexis Mac Allister. Three assists and a goal in his last three Premier League outings. The World Cup winner has had a great first season with The Reds.

RW - Mohamed Salah. Salah has a chance of playing in this match, which Liverpool fans hope for. He's world-class and one of the best wingers in Premier League history.

CF - Erling Haaland. As much as Liverpool fans love Darwizzy, they would be the first to give this spot to Haaland. He is a goal-scoring robot.

LW - Luis Diaz. Three goals and two assists in his last six Premier League games sees Luis Diaz round off this combined Liverpool vs Man City lineup.
