As Liverpool prepare for what is a crucial Champions League group fixture, tonight, against Paris Saint-Germain, a fixture that could shape the outcome of our season, it’s interesting to see the mind-games that are currently being played.
Ahead of the game, in Paris, the legend that is Gianluigi Buffon, now plying his trade in La Ligue, has praised the Liverpool front three.
According to the tabloid news vehicle, the Mirror, Buffon has implied that he is of the belief that our front three of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino are the best in the world.
Now that is praise indeed and it is a subject matter that could be debated for hours.
But, we should also remember that Paris Saint-Germain also have a strike force that ranks up there with the best with Neymar and Kylian Mbappe waiting to wreak havoc on our defence if concentration and performance levels dip.
However, it is always great to read that the opposition rate your players, let’s hope this praise doesn’t induce any elements of complacency, tonight chances could be few and far between and our front three will need to be clinical when it comes to finishing.
