Mané, Salah and Firmino: a gift from God for Liverpool's Klopp

Sadio Mané, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino have enjoyed a good start to the new season, much to Jürgen Klopp's pleasure.

Jürgen Klopp says he "thanks God" for having Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mané and Roberto Firmino at his disposal after the fearsome front three's fine start to Liverpool's season.

Mané-Salah-Firmino: 'world-class' trident

Liverpool have scored nine goals in four competitive matches this season, with the trio having already racked up a combined nine goal involvements between them.

Mané has started the campaign in particularly deadly form, netting three and registering the assist for Firmino's winner in the 2-1 victory over Southampton on Saturday.

The trio have been vital in Liverpool's re-emergence as a leading power in England and Europe over the last couple of seasons and Klopp considers himself lucky to call on his fantastic three.

Speaking to Liverpool's official website, Klopp said: "A lot of times in my life I had sensational players always, [but] not world-class players.

"Now, thank God I have them and they make the difference. We don't have to talk about that.

"Sadio Mané, Bobby Firmino, Mo Salah – these guys in the last situation are really outstanding.

"They were a constant threat [against Southampton], however tired they are. That's brilliant and, of course, made the difference. We don't have to talk about that."

The Reds are next in action on Saturday when they host Arsenal.
