Player showdown: Cavani vs Higuain


After the exit of Luis Suarez from LFC some suggest that the club needs to go out and bring in a megastar attacker to score goals and strike fear into the opponents. In recent days LFC have been linked with many strikers but the two who both stand out and seem possible are Cavani and Higuain. Who is the better of the two? But most importantly who would fit Liverpool Football Club the best?

                                              Playing Styles

Cavani – A big threat on the counter attack with his powerful running, engine and deadly finishing. Cavani is not just great at finishing chances on the deck but he also has a powerful header which will trouble the very best of keepers.  He likes to cut in rom wide for a shot when playing or drifting out wide. Cavani is up there as one of the hardest working forwards in Europe. His long range free kicks have also proven to be a very valuable weapon.


Higuain – A poacher of top quality, with fantastic movement off the ball and an assure finish. Higuain isn’t restricted to poaching goals in the 18 yard box however, he is also a clever attack who likes to hold the ball up and play in his attacking teammates, spotting runs and putting the ball where he would want it himself.


Who do you think would fit best at LFC? Higuain, Cavani or maybe someone else?

Who deserves the iconic LFC number 7?
