Former Leeds United and Liverpool midfielder Harry Kewell has described the attacking trio of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino as “frightening”.

The Reds front three combined for a whopping 91 goals last season with Salah netting an incredible 44 times in his debut campaign at Anfield. The Egypt international has since been shortlisted for The Best Men's Player 2018, alongside Cristiano Ronaldo and Luka Modric.

The trio have carried last season’s form in the 2018-19 campaign and Jurgen Klopp’s Reds sit top of the table with four wins from four matches in the English Premier League.

Kewell has been impressed by the trio’s form and is confident that they will continue to push one another to even greater heights.

"They (Salah, Mane and Firmino) are exciting and you look at the players he (Klopp) has on the bench to come on... You look at their front three: it's frightening," Kewell is quoted as saying by Sky Sports News.

"We always talk about Liverpool and think 'do they need that 30 goal a season striker?' But, for me, Firmino has been excellent, I can't fault him. He works so hard in positions on and off the ball which is fantastic.

"Then you have Mane and Salah driving at you at any given moment and both of them seem to have a little competition with each other to see who can score the most goals. It's just excellent."

Mane is up for the English Premier League Player of the Month, having already scooped the PFA Player of the Month of August accolade.
