Many people this season have wondered who is a better forward – Manchester United’s Romelu Lukaku or Tottenham Hotspur player Harry Kane, and according to Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp, he thinks they’re both top class players – but one has something extra.
Klopp said Kane is more involved off the ball and can give sides something extra to think about – and was speaking after his side faced the United striker, who missed a huge chance in the game – and ahead of their Super Sunday showdown with Spurs.
The Evening Standard report Klopp said: “I don’t have to judge these two. They are both fantastic strikers.
“The difference is that Harry is much more a part of the game when he is not scoring – but I am pretty sure Lukaku can make these steps too.
“We avoided the balls to Lukaku and that must be a key for Harry as well but if we are too concentrated on one player then Dele Alli is everywhere or Eriksen shoots from everywhere with decisive passes.
“It is a good team so you cannot be concentrated on one player.
“It will be a big challenge for them in the next few years because Harry is not only one of the best strikers in Europe, he is one of the best strikers in the world, 100 per cent.”
It’s a huge weekend for the top clubs, with Chelsea facing a tough task against Watford on the back of another poor result for Conte’s men and rumours of dressing room malcontent and the sack looming, while Watford picked up another three points against Arsenal last time out.
Not only that, but United and City will want to keep their places at the top of the table with convincing wins, and make sure people still see them as the title favourites.
