Gary Neville compares Man Utd’s new front-three to Liverpool’s star trio

Gary Neville reckons that Anthony Martial, Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford have the "talent and ability" to become Manchester United's version of Liverpool's incredible front three.

Martial, Greenwood and Rashford have been on fire since the Premier League returned from the coronavirus lockdown – with United winning their last four fixtures by three goals.

The threesome has in fact netted more times this season than the Reds' Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane – who have destroyed all in their path over the past three season, and were rewarded with a league title this campaign.

But Red Devils legend Neville has poured a bit of cold water on their hype, but insists that Martial, Greenwood and Rashford have the raw products to become the best attack in the league.

"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," he 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."
