​After a thrilling 4-2 win over Leicester at the weekend featuring goals from Ryan Fraser, Josh King and Adam Smith, Bournemouth goalkeeper Asmir Begovic has heaped praise on the club's front three.

​As quoted by ​the Daily Mail, speaking of Callum Wilson as well as King and Fraser, Begovic stated: "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 then compared them to the prolific Liverpool trio of ​Mohamed SalahSadio Mané and Roberto Firmino, adding: "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."


Statistically the two goalscoring trios are almost neck and neck with goals this season, with​Liverpool's attackers scoring eight to ​Bournemouth's seven. 


​Begovic went on to claim that England manager Gareth Southgate would benefit from recruiting from the Cherries, stating: "
A few of the lads should be in consideration for England, the lads have been doing it week in, week out."

​"Callum, Steve Cook, Lewis Cook, those guys have got to be pushing. It is great recognition for the club if they do." 


He added: "They are at international level. They have proved themselves at the highest level on a consistent basis. I know they are pushing and I’m sure they will get their rewards in the end."

Begovic's claims will be put to the test on 8 December, when Bournemouth and Liverpool face each other for the first time this season.
