Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has heaped praise on his front three players after they combined to good effect in their 2-1 win against Southampton on Saturday.
Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah were all decisive in the win against a dodgy Southampton at the St. Mary's Stadium, with Mane and Firmino grabbing the two goals.
The Reds team lacked the energy and verve that is always on display anytime they take to the pitch, perhaps owing to the tiring victory in midweek over Chelsea in the Uefa Super Cup, which involved extra time and penalties.
"A lot of times in my life I had sensational players always [but] not world-class players," Klopp told Liverpoolfc.com.
"Now, thank God I have them and they make the difference. We don't have to talk about that,"
"Sadio Mane, Bobby Firmino, Mo Salah – these guys in the last situation are really outstanding,"
"They were a constant threat, however, tired they are. That's brilliant and, of course, made the difference. We don't have to talk about that."
Liverpool is currently leading the standings after the second week of the English Premier League on six points, same as Arsenal who have an inferior goal difference.
They next host the Gunners on Sunday in what promises to be a pulsating clash.
