Liverpool’s ability to maul teams under Jurgen Klopp has been one of the positive points in our successful season.

The Reds beat Bournemouth 3-0 at Anfield on Saturday with the front three of Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino all finding the back of the net.

As per Liverpoolfc.com, Firmino’s goal against Bournemouth was the club’s 300th goal scored under Klopp’s 148-game period.

If the Liverpool attackers have dazzled this season, our defence has been impressive too. By beating the Cherries 3-0, the Reds kept their 15th clean sheet in the Premier League this season. Only Manchester United have kept more clean sheets than Liverpool this campaign.

Much has been spoken about Liverpool’s high-octane style of play under Klopp and the ability to batter teams at will. Mohamed Salah’s name instantly appears on the lips as he has taken the club’s attacking style of play to a different level this season.

The Egyptian’s goal against Bournemouth was his 40th of the campaign across all competitions. As per Liverpool.fc.com, Salah has reached that tally quicker than any other player in the history of our club, taking just 45 games to reach the milestone, beating George Allan’s record of 40 goals in 49 appearances.

The jet-heeled winger’s 30 goals in the league make him a hot favourite to win the Golden Boot award this season. He also leads the race for the European Golden Shoe, ahead of Barcelona star Lionel Messi.

Mohamed Salah

If Salah has been phenomenal, Mane has been devastating of late as he became the highest-scoring Senegalese player in the Premier League following his goal at Bournemouth.

The former Southampton man netted his 44th goal in the English top-flight to overtake former West Ham United and Newcastle striker Demba Ba.

Generally, games are won in the midfield and Liverpool’s midfielders have performed very well this season. The likes of Jordan Henderson, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, James Milner and Gini Wijnaldum have worked well in tandem throughout the season.

On Saturday against Bournemouth, Wijnaldum started in the three-man midfield alongside Henderson and Oxlade-Chamberlain, completing 100% of his 42 passes.

According to our club’s official website, the Dutchman is only the fourth midfielder to have a 100% passing accuracy in a Premier League game this season, joining the likes of Arsenal’s Mohamed Elneny, Tottenham’s Mousa Dembele and Swansea’s Ki-Sung-Yeung.

Liverpool’s incredible statistics following the win over Bournemouth has stunned our fans. Here is how they reacted on Twitter.

(Video) Watch Alisson and Roberto Firmino provide hilarious responses in latest “Bezzies”

Roberto Firmino of Liverpool

Liverpool have come up with another Bezzies video, this time focussing on Brazilian pair Alisson and Roberto Firmino.

We had seen a similar video of Joe Gomez and Virgil van Dijk a few weeks ago, and this one was just as brilliant between the Brazilians.

It started with Alisson answering about what Firmino would take along with him to an island, and the answer wasn’t really that surprising.

The forward answered his wife, which our keeper also guessed correctly. For Alisson’s options, the correct answer was barbecue, which Firmino got right too.

The pair were also asked what is their best body feature and which club they made their debuts for.

There were some great questions in between and Firmino confirmed that his favourite Brazilian player was Ronaldinho and not Ronaldo, while for Alisson it was goalkeeper Taffarel.

Our goalkeeper even predicted that Firmino would be a better keeper than his attacking partners Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.

The pair seem to be in great form and in spirits ahead of our crucial tie against Manchester United on Sunday.

Liverpool interested in signing £70m-rated Bundesliga powerhouse

Kai Havertz

Liverpool face tough competition for the signing of Kai Havertz of Bayer Leverkusen, according to Sport Bild (h/t Mirror).

The 19-year-old has been on fire for the Bundesliga giants this season and has seven goals and five assists in all competitions.

The German also has a couple of international caps to his name and plays mostly as an attacking midfielder.

The report claims that Manchester City, Manchester United, Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona are all “actively” tracking the rising star.

Jurgen Klopp of Liverpool

Havertz is rated at £70m (h/t Mirror), and he is the next big thing coming out from the Bundesliga. The 19-year-old was phenomenal last season with three goals and eight assists in the Bundesliga and seems set to break that his record in this campaign.

Liverpool have dipped into the German market several times under Jurgen Klopp, and if anyone would have the inside scoop on the 19-year-old, it has to be our manager due to his spell in the Bundesliga.

The Reds could do with an attacking midfielder in the team as we don’t have someone who can do this role. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain would be the ideal player for the position but it is unlikely we will see him play any minutes this season due to his injury.

Liverpool Manchester City Georginio Wijnaldum

Liverpool play Manchester United in the biggest fixture of the weekend, and the Reds have a sizeable lead over their rivals in the Premier League.

We are 16 points ahead of the Red Devils after just 16 games, and another win will keep us at the top of the table ahead of Manchester City.

Jurgen Klopp has never defeated the Red Devils during his Premier League career, and Georginio Wijnaldum spoke about the tie.

Georginio Wijnaldum

The Dutch midfielder believed we would put up a quality performance, claiming United are a good team while having a bit of a dig claiming they go out not to lose games (h/t Mirror):

“It’s a nice game. We’ll try to put in the same performance that we did against Napoli.

“Things can happen, everyone can have a bad season, it does not mean they [United] are not a good team with good players. Last season, with the same players, they finished second.

“They have good players, a good manager, and they know how to manage games and win games – or not to lose games! It is going to be difficult.”

Jose Mourinho always seems to have a plan when playing against Liverpool, whether it was his Chelsea days or his United days.
