Liverpool have begun the season in imperious fashion winning their first four matches with little problems. They have seen off the challenges of Norwich, Arsenal, Southampton and Burnley without breaking sweat.

The defence has been solid with PFA player of the year Virgil Van Dirk continuing his good run of form while the likes of Andrew Robertson and Trent Alexander-Arnold have continued their good form into the season.

However, one area that has continued to be the strength of the Reds is the attack with the front three of Mohammed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino holding sway. The Trio have been imperious this season with Mane, in particular, showing little signs of fatigue.

The Senegalese ace had a long season with the Afcon with his country but has shown devastating form this season. The major brewing point was in the last game against Burnley when Mane was mad with Salah for refusing to pass when he was through on goal.

Although the media tried to blow it into proportion, this sort of things occurs in football and Liverpool have had players that have come under fire for such tendencies. Spanish winger Alberto Riera was also tagged as being selfish attimes during his spell at the club but was a key member of the club towards the end of Rafa Benitez reign.

Salah is twice the player Riera is and it is understandable that the club has been quick to downplay any potential rift between him and Mane. The International break was also a welcoming distraction for the club ahead of a key run of fixtures in the coming weeks.

Newcastle are the next opponent and with the way the front three are playing, it is highly unlikely that the Magpies will leave Anfield with anything.
