Wayne Rooney comments on Liverpool's attack

Former Manchester United and Everton striker Wayne Rooney has lauded Liverpool's attack, calling it "the best attacking unit in world football at the moment".

The Reds trio of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino, and Sadio Mane have taken the Premier League and the world by surprise with their goal scoring prowess, helping Jurgen Klopp's side to the brink of a first Premier League title in 30 years, while they have already won the Champions League, UEFA Super Cup, and FIFA Club World Cup.

"I've been trying to explain how scoring is often down to players working together and the Liverpool front three are the perfect example," the 34-year-old told The Times.

"Salah and Sadio Mane provides the depth by pushing teams back which allows Firmino to come deep for the ball, the opposition center backs relax and suddenly the other two make diagonal runs at incredible pace to attack the space.

"It reminds me of how Roma used to play with [Francesco] Totti as number 10 and two quick runners attacking the box from wide. It pains me to admit it, but Liverpool are the best attacking unit in world football at the moment."

Salah, Firmino, and Mane have scored 49 goals between them this season - a tally only Manchester City can beat in the Premier League.
