Liverpool legend and BBC pundit Mark Lawrenson has given a glowing review to the club’s current squad, heaping praises on the attackers and manager.
Lawrenson said: “No, there’s not a better front three in world football for me than the three boys up front at Liverpool.
“I said that to someone the other day and they replied, ‘What about Cavani, Neymar and Mbappe?’ My answer was ‘yes’ but without the ball ‘no’.
“The three Liverpool lads, without the ball, are absolutely brilliant. Brilliant. And the three complement each other as well. They are not all desperate to score.
“If someone is in a better position they play them in. In fact, I think Firmino’s not really ever got as much adulation as the other two.

“When his mate Philippe Coutinho left to go to Barcelona I kind of thought, ‘You know what, he will tail right off now’. But he’s been brilliant. I think he’s the one who makes the other two tick.
“He generally plays more centrally and his movement is brilliant. And he will play people in all the time as well. I think he’s an absolutely great player.
“They all play with a smile on their faces, too – but wouldn’t you if you were getting 26 chances a game?
The other players love them, not because they’re great players and score loads of goals.
“It’s just their teamwork where they get the ball back for everybody else if they can. That Liverpool front three can also just rip teams apart. It’s the pace.
“If you watch PSG in the first game, they were like, ‘Wow, what’s happening here? We have never encountered this in our lives’. The biggest thing now is keeping them fit.
Also speaking about the coach, Lawrenson said Klopp has made everyone feel loved.
“He knows everyone, all the people at Melwood by name,” he added.
“Every single one, no matter what job they do. He makes people feel like they’re wanted. It’s fantastic playing for a manager like Jurgen.

“You speak to people who don’t know much about football or don’t go to games and they just go, ‘My God, how could you not play for Jurgen Klopp?’”
