Jordan Henderson has labelled Liverpool’s forwards as “world-class” after the Reds snatched top spot in the Premier League for the first time since May 2014.

After thrashing Watford 6-1 at Anfield on Sunday, the captain lauded the front trio of Philippe Coutinho, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane for firing Jurgen Klopp’s men to the summit.

The 26-year-old told The Guardian, “They are world-class players.

“Their understanding of the game, not only going forward, but also the work rate they all give for the team in terms of pressing and winning the ball back high up the pitch.

“They all help the team defensively. The three of them are fantastic at that and going forward they are unstoppable when they are on it.

“I see them every day and, for me, they are world-class players. It’s a pleasure to be playing with them.

“It’s our job to ensure we offer protection for them when they are going forward and expressing themselves.”
