Former Liverpool midfielder Steven Gerrard feels the club’s current attacking force is superior to the Luis Suarez-led force of 2014.
Jurgen Klopp’s spectacular front three struck again on Wednesday, driving his side to a 5-0 whipping of FC Porto in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie at Estádio do Dragão stadium.
Sadio Mane grabbed a hattrick to go with goals from Mo Salah and Roberto Firmino as Liverpool everything but fixed a spot in the quarter-finals.
The front trio has scored 63 goals in all competition between them this season and Gerrard feels they are superior to the attack force of 2014 that nearly led Liverpool to the Premier League title in 2013-14 in Suarez, Daniel Sturridge and Raheem Sterling.
“Both are excellent. What I would say about the comparisons between Suarez and this current team is that there is a better blend here,”
“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. “The blend is superb.”
Gerrard played behind the Suarez-led trio as Liverpool finished second to Manchester City in the league.The 37-year-old also hailed the teamwork of the current group, saying:
“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.”
