Only Harry Kane would get into Liverpool XI as Sadio Mane ‘does everything Heung-min Son can’, Graeme Souness believes December 13, 2020 – Posted in: Soccer

Graeme Souness believes Harry Kane is the only Tottenham player who would get into Liverpool’s team.

The striker has scored 15 goals in 19 games as Spurs have emerged as serious title challengers to the Reds’ crown.

But Liverpool legend Souness, who won five top-flight titles with the club in the 1970s and 80s, believes Jurgen Klopp would pick Sadio Mane over the in-form Heung-min Son.

The South Korea attacker has netted 13 goals for Tottenham since the start of the season.

But Souness told The Times: “Liverpool are the real deal in every department and Spurs are still a long way off that.

“The only Spurs player who would get in Liverpool’s line-up is Kane, because Sadio Mane can do everything Son can, and will also go to war with you.

“I don’t see Liverpool getting mugged as easily as Arsenal did, though there is more chance of it happening without Virgil Van Dijk and Fabinho, their best defensive midfielder, in the back four.”

Souness is adamant Mourinho’s style of football will not bother Spurs fans if it ends their 12-year wait for a trophy.

He added: “Mourinho deserves credit for how he has set up Spurs.

“He had a look at what he’s got and said, ‘this is the way to get the best out of these players and get results’.

“Whether he gets the backing long-term and enjoys a bit of luck in the transfer market to evolve, as he did at Chelsea, time will tell.

“The word is out now on how they will play in the big games, sitting in. It’s going to be a difficult watch, but it will be accepted by the fans in the short term if it brings success.

“Two League Cups in 29 years is not enough for a big club.”
