On the other hand, Sevilla beat Manchester United‘s Premier League rivals, Wolves in the quarter-finals and will be eager to reach the final and win the Europa League for the sixth time in their history.

So, before the weekend’s exciting quarter-final clash between Sevilla and Manchester United, let’s try and make a combined team comprising of the best players from both teams. We will be using the 4-2-3-1 formation.

Goalkeeper: Sergio Romero (Manchester United)

Sergio Romero is arguably the best back-up goalkeeper in the world. The Argentinian international, who mostly plays second-fiddle to David de Gea, has been one of the most consistent players for Manchester United whenever called upon.

Centre-back: Jules Kounde (Sevilla)

Defensive midfielder: Fred (Manchester United)

The Portuguese international, who played an instrumental role behind helping the Red Devils to a top-four finish in the Premier League, is the highest goalscorer in the Europa League this season, having featured for both Sporting and Manchester United.

Striker: Anthony Martial (Manchester United)
