Men's Team

Lescott and King choose combined City-Spurs XI

Who makes the cut in Joleon Lescott and Ledley King’s combined Manchester City and Tottenham XI ahead of Saturday’s Premier League clash?

The former England duo, who made over 550 appearances in the England top flight, are special guests on this afternoon’s Matchday Live show, which gets under way at 16:30 (UK) on all our digital platforms.

Lescott won two Premier Leagues and an FA Cup during a hugely successful period at Manchester City, while Ledley King captained Spurs to their most recent piece of silverware, a 2-1 victory over Chelsea in the 2008 League Cup final.


With this in mind, we challenged this weekend’s Matchday Live pair to come up with their ultimate XI comprised of their former City and Tottenham teammates.

Seven City players make the cut, although Kyle Walker has plied his trade at both sides across his career to date.

In total, the team’s combined honours list stands at an astonishing 27 domestic league titles, nine Champions Leagues and one World Cup triumph!

Joe Hart starts in goal, with King and Lescott lining up alongside former City captain Vincent Kompany in the heart of defence.

Kyle Walker and Gareth Bale provide width from the wing back positions, with the former joining Pep Guardiola’s men from Tottenham in 2017.

An incredible midfield three sits in front of the defence, comprised of Ballon D’Or winner Luka Modric and City legends David Silva and Yaya Toure.

And a star-studded attack completes the truly incredibly fantasy XI, with City’s record goalscorer Sergio Aguero partnered by current Spurs and England captain Harry Kane.
