Luis Garcia has hailed the Liverpool attack for being so dangerous that it is “weird” if they don’t score three goals every game.
Philippe Coutinho, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane have spearheaded an eyecatching start to the season that has lifted Liverpool to the Premier League summit.
Jurgen Klopp’s side have blasted a league-leading 24 goals this season to climb level on points with Manchester City and Arsenal, albeit with a marginally inferior goal difference.
Coutinho has been the architect of a series of outstanding recent displays, including the 4-2 win over Crystal Palace last Saturday.
The 24-year-old playmaker has scored four Premier League goals this season, a haul matched by Firmino and Mane.
“They are doing an amazing job,” said Garcia, as quoted by the official Liverpool website. “It’s weird not to see them score two or three goals every game. I think also for the supporters it’s important to see a team that goes forward, is attacking and plays attractive football.
“The most important thing is the goals that the team are scoring; it was a lack of goals in the last few years that the team needed to improve on.
“Hopefully they can continue and we can see more of this football.”
Spaniard Garcia is in full agreement about Coutinho with Dejan Lovren, who recently insisted that his attacking colleague is one of the best players in the country.
“He is one of the most exciting players to watch – he can make something from nothing and that’s something that you don’t see very often in the Premier League,” Garcia added to the Liverpool website.
“To have these kinds of players in England is very important for the league, it’s one of the best leagues in the world and it will continue to be with this type of player.”
