Liverpool’s front four are better than any other attacking quartet in the Premier League, according to a report.
The Liverpool Echo waxed lyrical about the Merseysiders’ fantastic foursome of Sadio Mane, Philippe Coutinho, Roberto Firmino and Adam Lallana in the wake of the team’s 6-1 demolition of Watford on Sunday.
Mane scored twice to supplement goals from Coutinho, Firmino, Emre Can and Georginio Wijnaldum as Jurgen Klopp’s side once again tore a Premier League side to shreds.
Lallana delivered another masterclass decorated with two assists as Liverpool climbed to the top of the Premier League table going into the international break.
Klopp’s team have now scored 30 goals from 11 league matches this season, four more than any other club, and have struck at least four goals in five of those games.
“Nobody else has a front four to hold a candle to Firmino, Philippe Coutinho, Sadio Mane and Adam Lallana,” reported the Echo. “The front four of are so elusive for defenders desperately trying to keep them under wraps. They drop off, they interchange, they link up and they all run themselves into the ground.
“Liverpool don’t just keep winning, they are striking fear into their rivals by the manner in which they are doing it.
“Nobody else is blessed with the kind of strength in depth which has someone of Daniel Sturridge’s calibre as an impact substitute.”
In the Premier League alone, Mane has scored six times this season, while Coutinho and Firmino have weighed in with five apiece and Lallana has struck on three occasions.
