Praise from Ian Rush poses as the kind of praise all attacking Liverpool players should aspire to receive during their time at the club.
The Reds legend has hailed his former side’s attacking stars and has also turned a focus to how tough it must be for opposition defenders to stop them.
He told Liverpoolfc.com: “I think that’s what Liverpool are doing now. You can’t say, ‘He’s the main striker’.”
“[They’ve got] a football brain; Firmino, Coutinho, Sturridge – when someone’s in their position, they’ve got to look for the space in another position.”
“They’ve got immense talent there and they seem to be gelling now because they’re working as a team.
“If you’re the opposition, it must be very, very difficult to judge who you’re up against.”
Difficult for the opposition to judge who they are up against- now, that’s what we like to hear.
The fluidity and the movement of Jurgen Klopp’s attacking force are just part of what has made them so successful so far this season.
It is equally as pointless for defenders to expect our forwards to remain in one position throughout the match as it is for Klopp to try and get his men to play to a rigid formation and shape.
It just so happens that we now have the quality across our entire frontline, no matter what setup, and the strength in depth in attacking areas to ensure this interchanging of positions truly hurts opposition sides.
We seriously look like an attacking force currently capable of punishing any Premier League defence.
