Asmir Begovic claims that Bournemouth’s front three of Ryan Fraser, Josh King and Callum Wilson are every bit as good as Liverpool’s Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino

The Reds’ strike trio have contributed eight goals and three assists towards the club’s 11 goal tally in their opening five games of the 2018/19 Premier League campaign

Bournemouth have also made good progress this season with 10 goals in the same amount of games.

Due to this goalkeeper Begovic believes that his side’s attacking players deserve to receive a similar credit to that of Liverpool’s.

“Our front three are as good as anyone in the league. We are a very attacking team, we want to attack and score goals,” he said on the Daily Mail.

“They are up there with Liverpool’s front three when they are on form. The way we play suits them. They have a great understanding and long may it continue.”

Fraser, King and Wilson have contributed seven goals and five assists combined for Bournemouth this term.
