Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has praised the ‘world-class’ work-rate of attacking trio Philippe Coutinho, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane, stating their performances have been vital to the Reds’ rise.
A 6-1 victory over Watford on Sunday afternoon lifted Liverpool to the top of the Premier League table for the first-time since May 2014, with Jurgen Klopp’s side hitting form- and their attacking trio top of their game.
All three players found the net in the comfortable victory over the Hornets, which extended Liverpool’s unbeaten run in all competitions to 12 games, and Henderson told The Telegraph that believes their contributions have been the key to the club’s success.
“They are world- class players. Their understanding of the game, not only going forward, but also the work rate they all give for the team in terms of pressing and winning the ball back high up the pitch. They all help the team defensively. The three of them are fantastic at that and going forward they are unstoppable when they are on it.”
Liverpool will be looking to continue their run of form after the international break, with fixtures on the horizon against Southampton, Sunderland and Leeds United.
