Gary Neville thinks Man Utd’s front three of Cristiano Ronaldo, Wayne Rooney and Carlos Tevez was the best the Premier League has ever seen and better than the current attacking trio at Liverpool.

Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah have given Liverpool fans some of the best times the club has experienced in recent years with 118 goals over just the last two seasons.

Neville acknowledged the Liverpool trio but claims Ronaldo, Rooney and Tevez at their peak were more devastating.

“Tevez for a year with Ronaldo and Rooney was just breathtaking, it was out of this world,” Neville told Sky Sports.

“It really was, not just because of the actual quality of the players, but there was a real selfish, nasty determination to those three, Ronaldo in a different way on the pitch in the sense that he wouldn’t go around kicking people, hassling people, harrassing people, hustling.

“He was immense in terms of his performance levels but Rooney and Tevez they were street fighters but with unbelievable ability and there was something about those three. You talk about the best front three in the Premier League, you’ll never beat those three for me.

“And you can talk about Mane, Salah and Firmino, I love them to bits, and Sterling, Aguero and Sane at City but you look at that front three of Tevez, Rooney and Ronaldo in their peak was out of this world.”
