Manchester United’s Front Three Have Scored More Combined Goals Than Liverpool’s Trio This Season
Anthony Martial, Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford collectively hold a better minutes-per-goal ratio than Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino.
Liverpool have had a blistering start to the season and are firing on all cylinders in their bid to become Premier League champions.
While Manchester United are continuing to push forward with their hopes of a top-four finish and securing Champions League football next season.
But the Red Devils trio currently have a higher goalscoring tally for the season over their Liverpool counterparts, according to The Athletic's Laurie Whitwell.
Martial, Greenwood and Rashford have collectively scored 39 times across all competitions for United.
Mane, Salah and Firmino are only one goal shy of the United front three, but they also have an inferior minutes-per-goal ratio.
Whitwell tweeted: "Tin hat time! Liverpool's front three have scored 38 goals combined in all competitions this season.
"For Rashford, Martial + Greenwood it is 39. And at a better mins/goal rate.
"Given their ages, it presents an appealing vision of the future for #mufc."
Ahead of United's 1-0 FA Cup win over Wolves on Wednesday night, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said he was "impressed" with his trio's performances this season.

"Personally, I just think myself very lucky to play alongside these great players.
"Every single player who plays alongside them would enjoy it because they are very good players and they make everything easy, so I just enjoy playing alongside them."
