Cape Town - Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren claims that his side have the best attack in the Premier League after their goal-laden start to the campaign.

The Reds recently thrashed Arsenal 4-0 at Anfield, the second game in a row in which they scored four goals following a Champions League play-off win over Hoffenheim.

"For me, they are the best, they caused Arsenal a lot of problems," he said of the trio of Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino, and Mohamed Salah.

"It's a long season and we will see towards the end of the season who is in the first place, but you can see the difference those three players make.

"I'm lucky that I don't have to face them very often in training. It tends to be the guys who aren't in the first eleven.

"All three of them are top players, they have pace and great quality. They are amazing. It would be quite difficult for any defender when you are up against Salah, Mane and Firmino."

The Reds have found the net eight times in the league so far, the second-most in the league after table-toppers Manchester United’s 10.

Liverpool next face a daunting trip to the Etihad Stadium on September 9, where they will face Pep Guardiola's Manchester City in an English Premiership clash.

Kick off is at 13:30.
