Liverpool earned an impressive 4-0 win over Southampton in the Premier League, keeping themselves in contention for the title. This season, Liverpool have the best front three in the league, if not all of Europe.
Mohamed Salah leads the goalscoring charts in England, with 11 goals to his name. And Diogo Jota’s double means that he now has seven goals to his name. Sadio Mane also has seven goals in the league this season. As a result, the attackers are the top 3 in the race for the Golden Boot right now.
Chelsea may be topping the league and are the best defensive team in the country. But, Liverpool are not only providing defensive solidarity, but are also backing it up with some brilliant attacking football. With Mo Salah in the form of his life, it will be foolish to rule out the Merseyside club from winning the Premier League at the end of the year.
And for all we know, the Egyptian could well be on his way to winning the Ballon d’Or considering the performances he’s putting up for the Reds. When he isn’t scoring, he is assisting his teammates and he did exactly that by setting up Diogo Jota today.
Mane and Salah are the highest African goalscorers in the Premier League, and their combination is one that has been massively productive for Jürgen Klopp. The addition of Jota in place of Bobby Firmino seems to be the final piece of the puzzle to turn the team into an attacking force.
