Tottenham’s front three of Harry Kane, Son Heung-min and Lucas Moura is BETTER than Manchester United’s despite £73m Jadon Sancho signing says Jamie O’Hara – as ex-Spurs man insists Liverpool still have Premier League’s most fearsome front-line
- He was discussing a front line of Marcus Rashford, Edinson Cavani and Sancho
- United, without Sancho, finished second last year, while Tottenham came eighth
- That was with the goals of loanee Gareth Bale, who has returned to Real Madrid
Jamie O’Hara has insisted that Tottenham’s front three is better than Manchester United’s, even after the signing of Jadon Sancho.
United confirmed the £73million signing of Sancho from Borussia Dortmund, but the former Spurs man feels an attacking trident of Harry Kane, Son Heung-min and Lucas Moura still outguns Sancho, Marcus Rashford and Edinson Cavani.
O’Hara comments on Talksport come despite the Red Devils finishing second in the Premier League last season, while the North London side finished eighth – and that was including the 11 goals scored by Gareth Bale, who has returned to Real Madrid.

He said: ‘Spurs’ front-three at their best is still better than that Manchester United front-three. Son is better than Rashford, Kane is better than Cavani.
‘OK, Moura is not better than Sancho, but Moura had a great finish to last season and does produce at the top level.’
O’Hara also rated the forward lines of Liverpool and Manchester City as better than United’s.
His comments come despite United recently securing the £73m signing of Jadon Sancho
O’Hara stated his belief that Kane and Son outgun Edinson Cavani (back) and Marcus Rashford
He added: ‘Liverpool have the best front-three in the Premier League. Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mo Salah. That’s better than Man United’s. Not based on last season, just based on talent and what they can produce when they’re at their best.
‘Man City, if they line up with Phil Foden, Riyad Mahrez and Kevin De Bruyne as a false-nine, that’s probably better than Manchester United’s, too. City do need to sign a new striker, but KDB is brilliant when he plays there.’
Kane has long been linked with a transfer to Manchester City, and would prove a huge loss to Nuno Espirito Santo’s side, with no out-and-out striker as a backup at the club.
