Michael Owen has lavished praise on Liverpool FC’s attacking trio of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino as the Reds prepare for their crunch clash against Manchester United on Saturday.

The Merseyside outfit have been in sensational form in recent weeks and will head into their trip to Old Trafford full of confidence following their solid displays.

Salah has been one of the Premier League’s top performers this season since his move from AS Roma last summer and he has already scored 24 Premier League goals this term.

The Egypt international has been combining brilliantly with Firmino and Mane to form a devastating attacking force for the Reds this season.

The trio will be expected to start for Jurgen Klopp’s side when the Merseyside outfit make the short trip to Old Trafford for Saturday lunchtime’s crunch Premier League showdown at Old Trafford.

And Liverpool FC legend Owen has been hugely impressed by the performances of the trio for Klopp’s team so far this term.

Speaking to BT Sport, Owen said: “With these three up front you’ve always got a fighting chance.

“They’re so unselfish, they make so many runs. They help each other. There’s not a selfish player in amongst those three. And that actually has been the case for some years now, even going back a few years when it was a different three.

“They play so well together and are so unselfish. That’s why they tend to get on the scoresheet so many times.”

Liverpool FC are currently in third place in the Premier League table and know that victory over the Red Devils would move them up into second place with eight games left to play.
