Jamie Redknapp and Micah Richards were involved in a heated debate as the Sky Sports pundits struggled to agree on a dream team made up of Liverpool and Manchester City players.

Ahead of the latest showdown between the two sides who have battled it out for the Premier League title for the last two years at Anfield on Sunday, former Liverpool midfielder Redknapp and ex-Man City defender Richards tried to find common ground as they attempted to pick a composite XI.

In an entertaining video call with journalists, Richards expressed his concern that he was not getting enough City players into the line-up and the pair eventually decided to pick their own sides.

The duo were allowed to select players who are not currently available due to injury and both picked Liverpool's Virgil van Dijk and City's Kevin De Bruyne, but there was debate over the midfield selections.

"I want to get Jordan Henderson in," declared Redknapp, but Richards was not so sure as he stated: "Well Henderson is a question mark for me because it depends how you want to play and Phil Foden has got to be in the team."

Redknapp responded by questioning Foden's selection ahead of Gini Wijnaldum as he said: "He’s a great little player but are you picking him ahead of Wijnaldum, ahead of Fabinho?"

Richards picked Liverpool's Fabinho in his midfield, while there was also dispute over who should lead the line, with Raheem Sterling left out by the City title winning defender.

"Mane is better than Sterling. It hurts me to say it but he is," admitted Richards as he picked the Liverpool forward in a three-man attack made up by Mohamed Salah and Sergio Aguero.
