Our Manchester United and Liverpool fans here in the Transfer Tavern have been involved in a heated discussion over their teams forward lines.
In the summer, United secured Romelu Lukaku for £75m from Everton having already signed Zlatan Ibrahimovic on a free the previous season, while Liverpool over the past few years have put together their current front three of Mo Salah (£34m), Sadio Mane (£34m) and Roberto Firmino (£29m).
Our landlord has watched the dangerous trio fire in goals left, right and centre at the moment for the Reds, who look a genuine threat to anyone when at their best. Meanwhile, Lukaku, after a blistering start has stuttered slightly in recent weeks and Ibrahimovic is just returning from an injury lay off.
The players for both sides fit into their respective formation perfectly and, with both offering completely different options, there’s only 20 odd million between the forward lines. Liverpool have the influential Philippe Coutinho to complete the fab four playing behind them but the Red Devils have Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard support the strikers.
We think that Liverpool’s attacking trident betters United’s when all are on song.
Meanwhile, our punters believe that both have pros and cons from whatever angle you look at it but Man United and Liverpool fans who do you think have the best under £100m forward line.
