Liverpool assistant Pep Lijnders has made some interesting comments concerning Liverpool’s attacking success so far this season.
Liverpool tearing teams apart
Much of the focus heading into the 2021/22 Premier League season would be on Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United – all of whom spent big in the summer.
And, whilst it is Chelsea who currently sit top of the Premier League by one point, Liverpool have been one of the most entertaining and lethal English sides this term.
The Reds may currently be a point behind Chelsea, but they are the only side still unbeaten in the PL and are the only English club to go unbeaten in their first three Champions League games of the campaign – winning all three so far.
One of the main reasons for Liverpool’s success this term has been their attacking output.
The Merseysiders have scored a staggering 27 goals in the league this season, with Chelsea in 2nd place with 23 after their 7-0 downing of Norwich over the weekend.
Liverpool assistant speaks on club’s attacking success
Mohamed Salah has been the obvious standout, scoring 15 and assisting five in 12 ties across all competitions.
But all of Liverpool’s forwards are impressing, with Roberto Firmino even scoring a hat-trick recently.
Now, Liverpool assistant Pep Lijnders has been asked how Liverpool have become such an effective attacking outfit this season, to which he gave the following response, which included him comparing Liverpool’s front three to velociraptors:
“We’re shooting from everywhere! But no, I think it has a lot to do with how the team is playing so you can never judge scoring from just how we move the ball from the back, it’s the whole package that creates.
“Our front players constantly get into good positions to score and then the quality of our front three, we said they looked like velociraptors in Jurassic Park and they go for it. “They are lethal and that is what we want, of course. So if you score in the right moments, these games against Manchester United are a great example of what can happen as well.”
