"I think, attacking-wise they're sexy. The goals can come from all over the park. That's what I like.

"Klopp bringing in Sadio Mane, I've mentioned Daniel Sturridge numerous times and I think he's England's best centre-forward.

"When you've got players like that, you're going to score goals and you're going to create goals.

"But I look at the other side of them and see the other side - it's a bit like Newcastle, when I was there with Kevin Keegan.

"It's the entertainer kind of scenario. I really do enjoy watching them going forward, but defensively they're so-so. But they're a good team. I think that's what makes them exciting."

Cole, who made 275 appearances for the Red Devils, scoring 121 goals, added: "Are they a title threat? Yes, I think they are, because Klopp has got them playing with so much energy now.

"They play good football and he's got them working very hard for each other. They're one of five teams who can win it, definitely."
