Roy Keane and Jamie Carragher selected their combined XI's from Manchester United's 1999 treble-winning side and the current Liverpool team on Monday Night Football.

Carragher was far more open to including Man Utd players in his side than Keane was in his. For Corkman, loyalty was too strong.

Jamie Carragher's team

Peter Schmeichel; Trent Alexander-Arnold, Jaap Stam, Virgil van Dijk, Denis Irwin; David Beckham, Roy Keane, Paul Scholes; Mo Salah, Dwight Yorke, Roberto Firmino

Roy Keane said that Virgil van Dijk would be the only Liverpool player he would add that United side of 21 years ago. "He's the only one, and Ronny Johnsen is unlucky," Keane said.

Some of the more interesting moments from the segment included Keane saying of Peter Schmeichel, "I wouldn't say I like Peter that much but as a goalkeeper and a character, you'd want him in goal for you".

He was also quite self-deprecating, saying of himself: "I was a very average player. I was very lucky. The key to my career, I always worked with really good players who carried me along."

The Irishman could also not contain his disbelief when Carragher chose Sadio Mane in his XI ahead of Ryan Giggs.
