'They might be better': Ally McCoist shares who he thinks has the stronger attack - Tottenham Hotspur or Manchester City
Both Spurs and City got off to flying starts in the league over the weekend and their attacking prowess was on display.
Antonio Conte’s men thrashed Southampton at home while Pep Guardiola’s team enjoyed a comfortable 2-0 win away at West Ham.
Erling Haaland was firing for City as he bagged a brace, while Kulusevski was the star of the show at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
McCoist on City and Spurs’ attack
“When you look at Kulusevski, Son and Harry Kane, they are arguably the best front three in the country, they really are,” he said.
“They’re fantastic. You can argue that Salah is a better player.”
TalkSPORT host Laura Woods then asked the former Rangers man how City’s attack stacks up to Spurs’.
McCoist responded: “I’ll stand by what I’ve said. They make the best three in the league. Because they might be better than Haaland, Foden and Grealish. Absolutely. You don’t think that’s a great front three?”
Woods thinks City’s front-three will score more goals than Spurs’ this season but McCoist stood by his choice and mentioned Conte’s new-found depth.
He added: “Kulusevski, Son and Kane. Brilliant. Absolutely brilliant. I mean of course the City front three is tremendous, so is the Liverpool front three.
“But I get Conte’s point, because I know none of the signings started, but he’s now got a bench where he won’t get like-for-like but he’s not weakening his team that much if he makes changes.”
Both City and Spurs boast amazing attacking options and it’s hard to choose between them.
Conte’s attacking trio have now played together since February and as Haaland only made his Premier League debut yesterday, it’s still early days for the City front-three.
But it will be intriguing to see which attack provides more goal involvements for their clubs this season as Conte aims to close the gap between his Spurs side and the champions.
