Tottenham pair Harry Kane and Heung-min Son are better than Liverpool's famed forward line of Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah, says Jason Cundy.

Son scored his eighth goal of the season in Monday's 1-0 win at Burnley after Kane had headed an Erik Lamela corner into his path.

Spurs are fifth, two points behind leaders Everton, and lead the league in scoring with 16 goals.

It was the ninth goal the pair had combined for this season, with Kane assisting on seven of Son's eight goals, while the South Korean has assisted on two of the England's forward's five strikes.

Such form, which manager Jose Mourinho gives credit to predecessor Mauricio Pochettino for, means Spurs boast the best forward line in Europe, according to former Spurs defender Cundy.

"It's been widely accepted that the best front three, certainly over the last two years, in this country and across Europe, has been at Liverpool – Mane, Firmino and Salah," he said on talkSPORT.

"Right now, give me Kane over Firmino and Son over Salah."
