Gary Neville says Liverpool are so hard to play against because even if one of the front three has an off day, there are two other world-class stars who can provide some magic and win the match in an instant.
At the weekend, it was Mo Salah and Roberto Firmino who took the main headlines – the former for his penalty and brilliant solo goal, and the latter for his ludicrous piece of skill – while Sadio Mane had a quieter afternoon.
The week before at Southampton, it was Mane who took centre stage as he netted an unreal goal against his former club in what was a tricky away fixture for the Reds to traverse.
Via the Daily Star, Neville said: “[Salah] was breathtaking [against Arsenal]. Firmino looked full of confidence and in brilliant form.
“That’s the problem with Liverpool’s front three. One of them can have an off day and the other two can be OK, one of them can be sensational, it doesn’t really matter.
“One of them’s always performing, one of them’s always at it. In one week you’ll come and think ‘well he’s not at it today’ and then the other one turns up. [They] are a nightmare.”
Having all three at their best for as long as possible will be crucial to the Reds’ title hopes this season. So far all of them have been brilliant and have started the new campaign in superb form.
They will be looking to continue that when they travel to Burnley on Saturday evening for what will be another testing away trip for Jurgen Klopp and his Reds side.
