Gary Neville put aside his Manchester United loyalty and picked nine players in his team of the season from two of his greatest rivals of all time.
Sky Sports pundits join Jamie Carragher in selecting his standout XI over the past four months.
And they picked at least five Liverpool stars and four Manchester City stars in their 3-4-3 line-up.
From Anfield, Neville picked Alisson on goal, Virgil van Dijk in the center of defence, Trent Alexander-Arnold in the attack with Mo Salah and Diogo Jota in the right wing-back.
Ruben Diess joined Van Dijk from behind with Joao Cancello on the opposite side from Alexander-Arnold.
Rodri operated in the middle of the park as Phil Foden completed the front line.
The other two players in Neville’s squad were Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger and West Ham’s Declan Rice.
And the ex-United right-back has defended his selection, especially with Rodri.

Neville said: “I thought Diess, Van Dijk, Rudiger were absolutely outstanding at their clubs. I wanted to bring in two midfield players with Rice and Rodri.
‘Rhodri has been absolutely incredible at City this year, absolutely amazing. Underrated, underappreciated, someone who works week in, week. There is a massive improvement in that.
‘The full-back – it’s unlucky on Robertson at Liverpool, but Canelo and Alexander-Arnold have lit up the league this year with full-backs, absolutely brilliant.
Carragher agreed on eight of the 11 players – despite going with 4-3-3.
The Liverpool legend swooped down on cop stopper Alisson to go with Aaron Ramsdale.
The four behind him were Alexander-Arnold, Van Dijk, Rudiger and Canslow.
He also agreed on his front with Salah, Jota and Foden.
But Carragher picked up Conor Gallagher and Bernardo Silva on either side of Rice, eliminating Rodri.

And he couldn’t believe that his fellow pundit had left one of the stars of the season.
Cara asked: “How come you didn’t have Bernardo Silva in your team?”
Neville simply replied: “I just haven’t.”
Both men agreed that Salah was the player of the season so far, with Foden being the best of young talent in the Premier League and Pep Guardiola as the top coach.
They also agreed that the best signing was the goalkeeper – but when Carragher highlighted Ramsdale, Neville chose Jose Sa.
And despite his injury in this period, Carragher and Neville agreed that they would sign Kevin De Bruyne if they could choose someone to join their former teams.
