Gary Neville thinks the front three at Man Utd are “good enough” to rival Liverpool’s attacking trio in future years.
Mason Greenwood, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial all scored in United’s 5-2 win over Bournemouth on Saturday and they were impressive again as they started in the Red Devils’ 3-0 victory over Aston Villa.
The Man Utd trio have scored 39 Premier League goals between themselves this campaign, while Liverpool’s front three of Mo Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane have bagged 43.
And Neville reckons the Man Utd threesome are on the right track to become as good Liverpool’s deadly trio, who are the “real deal”.
“Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane are matured, they are established, they are the real deal – the best front three in the Premier League. I was saying that even when Manchester City were winning the league,” Neville told the Gary Neville podcast.
“The three that United have got are not at the level of Liverpool’s front three yet, you wouldn’t expect them to be, but they have the talent and ability.
“There were questions whether Rashford was good enough, whether Martial was good enough and Greenwood hadn’t obviously emerged back then, but they are proving they are good enough, that they can play and that they will get better.
“The Liverpool front three are ahead, but it is exciting for Manchester United. If you believe in young players and give them opportunities in the positions they want to play in, you will be amazed what you can achieve.”
