Thierry Henry has admitted that he has been hugely impressed by Liverpool FC duo Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah’s understanding together this season.

The pair have both been in brilliant form for Jurgen Klopp’s men since Salah’s arrival at Anfield from Italian side Roma in the summer transfer window.

Firmino has been linking up well with his new team-mate as the Reds look for different attacking options following Philippe Coutinho’s transfer to Barcelona back in January.

The duo each scored once in Liverpool FC’s 2-0 victory over Southampton in the top flight on Sunday afternoon as they both continued their brilliant form.

Salah has now scored 22 goals in the Premier League so far this season, while Firmino has netted 12 times in the top flight for the Merseyside outfit.

And Arsenal legend Henry has admitted that he has been hugely impressed by what he has seen from the pair in a Liverpool FC shirt so far this season.

Speaking to Sky Sports after the win over Southampton, Henry said: “They combine a lot. Mo Salah knows that Firmino is going to drop and he can run in behind, and when he gives him the ball he’s usually going to receive it back.

“They’re hot at the moment. Mo Salah just arrived so it’s early between those two. You can see a great partnership developing there.”

Liverpool FC will return to Champions League action on Wednesday night when they travel to Portugal to take on Porto in the first leg of their last 16 clash.

The Reds are currently third in the Premier League table.
