When Liverpool face Manchester United at Anfield on Monday, nobody will be in any doubt which is the better team. The inevitable combined XIs will be a source of humour for one side and frustration for the other. How has it come to this? United have spent money only to go backwards. Even now, they have the bigger wage bill.

Liverpool look formidable. A team with no obvious weakness. Technically excellent. Physically robust. Mentally strong. Jurgen Klopp deserves huge credit for the vision, skill and man-management that has taken Liverpool to the top but it would be a mistake to think that this is just happy coincidence. A tale of gems unearthed. A team that simply struck gold.

Liverpool’s success is one of strategy too and the clearest evidence of that is in the age profile of the team, providing Klopp with a key advantage over his rivals that should not be overlooked. It is not just that Liverpool have better players, it’s that they have better players right now. A team of players who are each operating at close to the peak of their powers.

Worried Spurs fans hope to see the striker back in the spring but there are fears he won’t return until after the summer.

Kane suffered a torn hamstring in the New Year’s Day defeat against Southampton and went under the knife last week.

England kick off their European Championship campaign against Croatia on June 14, making for a very tight deadline according to Dr Chris Wilson.
