Liverpool have the best front three in the world again, but write Man Utd off at your peril, says Paul Merson

“Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino, and Sadio Mane are back to being the best front three in the world again. If United loses, I cannot see how Solskjaer stays long-term”. Paul Merson says Liverpool Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino, and Sadio Mane have reclaimed their crown. As they are the best front three in world football. Also, warns Manchester United can never be written off at Old Trafford.

Manchester United and Liverpool – English football’s most-decorated clubs with a combined 39 League titles and 93 major trophies – renew their rivalry at Old Trafford on Super Sunday.


Liverpool makes the trip down the East Lancs Road in search of successive Premier League victories. Also, at the home of their fiercest rivals for the first time since 2002, as well as Jurgen Klopp’s 200th win since taking charge of the Merseyside club.

Merson believes a rejuvenated Salah, Firmino, and Mane give Liverpool all the firepower they need to achieve their objectives and could inflict a telling blow on under-fire manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer but insists Manchester United at Old Trafford is a prospect you overlook at your peril.

‘Salah, Firmino, Mane best in the world again’

Liverpool’s front three of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino, and Sadio Mane are back to where they were, they are unplayable.

They can blitz teams and score three or four goals in 20 minutes. It was a hallmark from their title-winning season, and they have got that back.
Their movement, their pace, their skill – everything is top-drawer. They are back to being the best front three in the world of football again.

To get back to that level is some achievement, it’s so hard getting back to previous heights having fallen away like they did last season.
It’s all been underpinned by a willingness to run on and off the ball. It doesn’t matter how good you are, you’ve got to work. You have to run teams into the ground.

When Salah or Mane make a run they don’t jog, they sprint so the defender has to go with them. That drains defenders because no one ever wants to chase anybody back without the ball, it is the most demoralizing feeling in the world.
