Liverpool legend Graeme Souness has resumed his banter at Manchester United by claiming we would have to sell our souls to have a front three as effective as Tottenham Hotspur.
Despite our attacking triumvirate of Mason Greenwood, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford scoring a combined 56 goals last season, Liverpool legend Souness believes Spurs strikeforce of Gareth Bale, Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min is better off than ours, and also feels they will fire the North Londoners back into the top four.
“After several consecutive seasons of top-four finishes, expectations will have been toned down a little following last season’s sixth-place finish,” Souness told the Times.
“With Bale on board, though, I believe that Spurs can catapult themselves back to a Champions League spot.
“I’m not saying they will be title contenders but they can take points off the likes of Liverpool, Manchester City and Manchester United.
“The reason for that is not down to Bale alone but because of the combined potency of their front three.
“Bale, Harry Kane and Son Heung-min — this is an attack that deserves to be bracketed alongside Sadio Mané, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino at Liverpool, as well as whoever Barcelona or Real Madrid put out in those forward positions.
“Manchester United would sell their souls to have such an effective strikeforce.”
