There is a better blend in this current Liverpool attack -Gerrard

There is a better blend in this current Liverpool attack -Gerrard

Liverpool legend, Steven Gerrard believes that the current Liverpool team can boast of a better attacking blend than the 2014 side that almost claimed the Premier League side, a team he was part of.

Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino, and Sadio Mane have now scored a massive 63 goals between them this season as the trio were all on the scoresheet in the Red’s 5-0 thrashing of FC Porto in the Champions League Round of 16 first leg on Wednesday.

The Suarez-inspired attack of 2014 that consisted of the Uruguayan, Raheem Sterling and Daniel Sturridge with Gerrard playing slightly behind them scored 65 goals all season.

Now, Salah is personally on 30, Firmino has 21 while Mane, who started the season quite slowly has 12 goals. The former legendary midfielder retorted in one word that the two attacks are superb.

While speaking on BT Sport, Gerrard said: “What I would say about the comparisons between Suarez and this current team is that there is a better blend here [in the current team].

“With Mane, you have the pace and directness, with Firmino you have the touch and hold-up play and securing the ball, and then you have Salah that gives you a bit of both and delivers goals.

Gerrard added: “The work rate of this Liverpool team is very, very special, and you also notice how unselfish they are.

“There’s no greed in the team, there’s nobody who is selfish. They all pass the ball to each other.

“If someone is in a better area, they look for each other. And they are all getting in on the act because they know they are going to score heavily.”
