'Least talented': Gary Neville shares whether he'd swap Manchester United's front-three for Arsenal's
Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville has admitted that he’d swap Manchester United’s front three for the Arsenal front line.
Indeed, the Old Trafford legend believes the Red Devils front three is the worst out of the Premier League top six teams.
Neville was speaking on The Overlap Fan Debate Midseason Special Part 2 alongside Jamie Carragher.
Arsenal boast an impressive first-choice front three in Bukayo Saka, Gabriel Jesus and Gabriel Martinelli.
The Gunners trio have 15 goals and 15 assists between them in all competitions so far this season.
In terms of overall Premier League goalscoring tallies, Arsenal are the second-highest in the division (31).
Only Manchester City are ahead of Mikel Arteta’s side, on 39.
Meanwhile, United have scored fewer goals than Arsenal, City, Tottenham and Liverpool.
They’ve also scored fewer than Newcastle and Brighton, having only netted one more than Chelsea.
Earlier this week, Neville said on his podcast that “United’s front three are the weakest out of the top six”.
And on The Overlap, the Old Trafford icon reiterated his opinion.
“Up front I think United’s front players, I think they are the least talented out of the top six,” said Neville.
“I think I would swap every other clubs, Chelsea is the only one I’m a little bit like that [unsure] about.
“But I think every other squad’s forward players in the top six I would swap for ours.”
There’s no doubting that Arsenal’s first-choice front three is one of the best in the Premier League.
Saka and Martinelli are world-class players and, at 21, are still a good few years away from their peak.
Jesus, meanwhile, is still only 25, and has been outstanding at the highest level for a few years now.
United’s front line should be good – Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial, Antony, Jadon Sancho and Cristiano Ronaldo are strong players.
However, injuries and inconsistency have led to the Red Devils struggling in attack.
