Lescott chooses combined City-Everton XI ahead of Etihad clash

Who makes the cut in Joleon Lescott’s combined Manchester City and Everton XI ahead of the Toffees’ Premier League visit?

The two-time Premier League winner made over 140 appearances for Everton before completing a move to the Etihad Stadium in the summer of 2009.

In total, Lescott featured over 300 times for City and the Toffees, and will offer his expert insight on both sides ahead of Sunday’s 14:00 (UK) kick-off as a special guest, alongside Richard Dunne, on Matchday Live.


With this in mind, we challenged the former City defender to come up with a combined all-time XI of players he played with at both clubs.

In total, Lescott opted for eight of his former City teammates, with Gareth Barry also turning out for Everton later in his career.

Joe Hart starts between the sticks, while Micah Richards and Vincent Kompany are joined by former England internationals Phil Jagielka and Leighton Baines in a back four.

Yaya Toure and Barry get the nod in central midfield, with David Silva and Steven Pienaar on either flank.

And the team is completed by a devastating frontline of Argentine duo, Carlos Tevez and Sergio Aguero.

Lescott will go into more detail about his player picks during Sunday’s Matchday Live show, which gets underway one hour prior to kick-off at the Etihad Stadium.

Keep an eye across and the official Man City app for Richard Dunne’s combined XI, which will be revealed on Saturday morning.
