Liverpool have been breathtaking going forward so far this season.
Leon Osman was a guest on Sky Sports’ Premier League Daily programme on Monday December 4th, and offered high words of praise for the Reds’ dangerous attacking line-up of Sadio Mane, Philippe Coutinho, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah.
Liverpool have been sensational going forward so far this season, scoring 33 goals in 15 Premier League outings, with the likes of Salah and Mane causing havoc in the final third.
Jürgen Klopp’s men currently occupy fourth position in the Premier League table, and although they are a distant 14 points adrift of Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City side, there is always hope that they can challenge for the title with the kind of firepower they possess up front.
And Osman, who spent 16 years playing for Liverpool’s bitter rivals Everton, was highly complimentary of the Reds’ attackers, highlighting the understanding they have with each other as a particular reason why they are so dangerous, when speaking live on Sky Sports’ Premier League Daily programme:
“It’s incredibly difficult to stop them. They know each others’ game, they all know what passes to give each other, and it’s been very impressive to watch, even from the Blue side.”
Next up for Klopp’s side is the Merseyside derby on Sunday, and Anfield will be buzzing with excitement and anticipation when Everton roll into town.
The Toffees’ defence will surely be in for a busy afternoon, and Osman will be hoping that his former club can keep their bitter rivals at bay for the 90 minutes.
