Speaking on The Debate, Ian Wright and Andy Townsend choose their north v south XIs, and some interesting choices for managers.
After Romelu Lukaku asked the Premier League to arrange an all-star game, similar to the one in the NBA, the pundits gave their expert opinions on who would make their sides.
Townsend, representing the north, had a blistering attacking force to choose from, with Mohamed Salah, Kevin De Bruyne and Roberto Firmino included, while Ian Wright opted for Mesut Ozil, Harry Kane and a solid midfield including N’Golo Kante.
While Wright chose Chelsea’s Antonio Conte as his manager, Townsend somewhat controversially handed his managerial job to Jurgen Klopp over Pep Guardiola.
Townsend also said he would swap Firmino for Kane if he could, while Wright said he would take De Bruyne in place of Ozil.
See what the pair had to say about their chosen XIs, plus discussion on the prospect of a North v South game in the video above.
