Teams are scared of Liverpool this season, claims Joe Allen
Joe Allen says teams are "scared" of facing Liverpool this season due to their prolific attacking line-up
Joe Allen claims that teams are “scared” of facing Liverpool this season due to their prolific attacking line-up.
The Reds are currently the top scorers in the Premier League, having hit an impressive 73 goals in 28 games so far this term.
Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez have formed a sensational strike partnership for Brendan Rodgers’ men – and Allen feels that the Merseyside outfit have proved themselves as a force to be reckoned with in the top flight.
The combinations and link-up play is scaring every defence
“The difference this year to last year is incredible,” Allen told the Liverpool Echo. “We talked a lot last year and things didn’t quite click.
“The combinations since the first game of this season have been spot on. Every single player is giving everything to get the required results.
“You see the hunger every time we go forward. That’s the reason, along with the quality of our strikeforce, why we’re scoring so many.
“With Suarez, Sturridge and Raheem Sterling we have plenty of pace and the combinations and link-up play is scaring every defence.”
