    Saw this over on the darkside and thought it was an interesting debate.........

    XI with current injury situation and performance levels taken into account:

    De Gea
    Walker
    Stones
    Alderweireld
    Delph
    Fernandinho
    KDB
    Silva (Nobody putting him in the team over there, truly incredible, take away KDBs performances and he pisses all over any other CM in the league)
    Sane
    Kane
    Sterling

    XI with everyone fit and playing at 100%

    De Gea
    Walker
    Kompany
    Alderweirweld
    Mendy
    Dembele
    KDB
    Silva
    Sane
    Kane
    Aguero

    Jose, obviously. If there is one thing a team of this quality needs, it's the ability to play for a 0-0.

    You can rule out most of ours then, not tall and athletic enough for his XI.

    Can't see why anyone would pick DeGea over Ederson personally.

    It would depend who the manager was.

    If it's Pep in a current 4-3-3 formation then in a legitimate workable team that doesn't put players out of position for thee sake of including them, Garth Crooks team of the week style then it's hard to look past the entire City team, just replacing Otamendi with one of the Spurs centre backs.

    De Gea is currently the better keeper but the other two are not far behind at all and Ederson has the specific skill set to make him the ideal goalkeeper for Pep. No other United players would get a sniff. Spurs have a few players you could make a valid claim to include, the obvious one, Kane could fit in upfront but Aguero's all round game is better and suits Peps style better and neither play out wide so both can't play.

    If Mourinho is the manager then

    De Gea
    Walker
    Baily
    Jones
    Rose
    Valencia
    Vertonghen
    Alderweireld
    Mendy
    Stones
    Otamendi

    Ederson has made a sensational start, far better than De Geas start at United. It is just a start though. In fairness to the doughnut thief, he has been excellent for the past few seasons.

    It's quite obvious really, far more proven. For us city fans we can obviously see how good Ederson is and will be and I do think he'll become the best keeper in the world because he's that damn good but to expect rival fans to rate him over their own keepers after a few games is a bit far fetched.

    Indeed, but Ederson so far seems to be making saves whenever required & is better with his feet & at getting out to the ball, which imo gives him an extra dimension to almost anybody I've ever seen.

    Agreed. I think he will go on to be something really special.
