Liverpool hero Aldo: We need 30-goal striker to challenge Man City

John Aldridge has claimed his former club would be much closer to Manchester City had they signed a 30-goal striker.

Despite Mohamed Salah contributing 21 goals this season, and regular number 9, Roberto Firmino, chipping in with 11, Aldridge feels Jurgen Klopp's side would have benefited from having another prolific striker.

"Salah has been remarkable," he told Sky Sports. If you look at what he's done from a wide perspective - as a winger - and to be a goal behind Harry Kane in the golden boot is absolutely amazing. He's only had one penalty this season, he's been awesome," said Aldridge.

"(Roberto) Firmino is a great player but if we'd have had a spearhead goalscorer who gets you 25 or 30 goals a season who knows how far we'd have been behind Man City."
