The Dundee derby is back this weekend as Dundee United host their city rivals on Sunday lunchtime – but just who would make the cut in a combined Dundee/Dundee United XI?
While the Arabs sit four points ahead of the Dark Blues, things could be very different when they meet in the top flight for the first time in five years this weekend.
Last time the two met in the Premiership, it was Dundee who came out 2-1 winners, thanks to goals from Kostadin Gadzhalov and Craig Wighton while the last derby ended in a stalemate in the Championship back in December 2019.
Both sides look very different now and Sunday’s clash is set to be an exciting one as Dundee look to pick up their first win of the season while United try and push further up the table.
With a fairly even split across the combined XI, Dundee appear to have the better attacking options thanks to Jason Cummings and Leigh Griffiths while Thomas Courts’ Arabs look more solid defensively with the likes of Benji Siegrist, Charlie Mulgrew and Ryan Edward.
While there are doubts over the fitness of Charle Adam ahead of Sunday’s derby, we’ve picked our XI on the basis that everyone is fit and available this weekend.
