Jamie Carragher believes Liverpool currently have “the form man in Europe” in their ranks.
Liverpool returned to the top of the Premier League on Sunday with a 2-1 win over Fulham at Craven Cottage.
Sadio Mane was the key to victory, opening the scoring and winning the penalty from which James Milner secured a crucial result.
The Senegalese has now scored 11 goals in his last 11 games and is fueling a Premier League and Champions League assault for Jurgen Klopp’s side.
Carragher was impressed during commentary on the game.
“He’s not just form man in the Premier League, he’s the form man in Europe,” Carragher told Sky Sports.
“I’ve been saying from the start of this game: there’s far too much space in wide areas and Liverpool have exploited it.
“There was space for Mane to go at the full-back, space for Robertson. It’s a great run and pass from Firmino and the combination between the front three is superb.”
Carragher was less effusive in his praise for struggling teammate Mohamed Salah.
“He has been selfish and greedy, no doubt,” he said.
“His record for Liverpool has been outstanding in the Premier League – scoring and creating goals. Nobody has been involved in more goals this season.
“He’s been a constant threat. But two or three times today he’s got to get his head up and see what’s around him.”
