Liverpool fans have been disagreeing with Sky Sports pundit Graeme Souness after he suggested that Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero would get into Jurgen Klopp’s side.
The former Reds midfielder and manager reflected on Sergio Aguero’s hat-trick during the Citizens’ 6-1 thrashing of Aston Villa on Sunday, which made him the Premier League’s record overseas scorer with 177 goals, as per Football365. Despite City’s successes, they remain 14 points behind the Reds in the Premier League table as they remain unbeaten in what has been a faultless campaign from Jurgen Klopp’s side. Quoted by the Liverpool Echo, Souness told Sky Sports that he does not think there is a team in the world that Aguero would not get in.
Graeme Souness has insisted that Sergio Aguero would get into the Liverpool team ahead of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane or Roberto Firmino.
“I don’t think there is any team in the world he would not get in.”
Agree, Reds? 🤔https://t.co/V7Y0AUw3RE

The Kop faithful stuck up for their team and suggested that Roberto Firmino would not be subsidised for the Argentinian striker, due to the unique role that he plays in the German tactician’s team. The 28-year-old has scored seven goals in 21 Premier League games this season (as per TransferMarkt), which typically is not more than his attacking comrades in Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane. However, the importance of the Brazilian to the squad is profound, as goalkeeper Alisson Becker echoed.

He would be a square peg in a round hole. Top striker but certainly wouldn’t improve us.

Only Benefit he brings is goals which sounds crazy but Firmino overall work is more valuable for me

Is Sadio Mane the best player in the Premier League?
