The pair have combined for 10 goals in the last six games, with Mooney responsible for five of those in his previous two outings alone.

The 28-year-old, who had been regularly employed out of his favoured attacking position, has come under criticism from fans in the past but denies this has contributed to his motivation.

"It's just one of those things. I don't think I'm proving anyone wrong. You just want to prove yourself right really and I knew I would once I played up front," he told the East London Guardian.

"Lisbie is a great foil. He's strong, good in the air and links the play great. I just play off him really and he's the one who gives me the freedom to play. In terms of that it's been really good.

"It's been exciting. Me and Kevin have formed a great partnership. He's got five or six goals and I've got five goals in the last few weeks."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
