Match of the Day saw another celebration of just how brilliant the Reds are with pundits falling over themselves to praise Jürgen Klopp’s winning machine.
Alan Shearer was drooling over the Liverpool attack.
In his analysis the ex-Newcastle United forward highlighted the unselfish runs made by each forward to open up space for their teammate.
He was thoroughly impressed by the side’s attacking intelligence, concluding:
“It really was a devastating display from all of the forwards on the pitch, it was magnificent, great to watch.”
What RTK has to say
We saw time and again this weekend just how in sync with each other the Reds attack is.
Constantly they were dragging defenders this way and that to open up space for their teammates.
They were utterly unstoppable throughout the afternoon and we’ll be hoping they keep that up.
