With the announcement that Roberto Firmino will be leaving Liverpool, and Sadio Mane's departure to Bayern Munich last year, the front three that defined Klopp's most successful Liverpool years will well and truly be gone in a number of months.

However, given what occurred at Anfield yesterday, Jamie Carragher believes that we may be seeing the beginnings of a new and successful attacking trio.

With Mo Salah breaking Premier League records for Liverpool in their 7-0 win over Man United, Cody Gakpo winning MOTM, and Darwin Nunez also chipping in with a couple of goals, Jamie Carragher was understandably positive about Liverpool's future on tonight's Monday Night Football.

The announcement on Roberto for me, not being at the club next season, Sadio Mane at the start of the season moving, and Liverpool just not being at the races for a lot of this season.

It just felt nice to see Gakpo, Nunez, Salah, still got Diaz to come back, Jota off the bench, that there could be the makings of a new front three. Will it ever get to that level? We don't know

But let's not forget Manchester United are top quality opposition. Going into this game, probably one of the most in form teams in Europe.

So for you're attacking players to be that sort of devastating on the day and score those amounts of goals, I think, you know, bodes well for the future in terms of Liverpool getting back to their old selves in terms of taking teams apart and scoring goals.

Carragher left most of the praise for new signing Gakpo, as the Dutchman produced the first of what should be many great Liverpool performances.

"He's been getting goals, but this was a brilliant performance.


"But what I would say about Gakpo and Harvey Elliott, they were the two positions that I think were up for grabs. I'll be honest with you, I wanted to play Jota from the start because I thought he'd be better pressing from the front. Liverpool could win the ball back from there.

"But tactically it was fantastic and the role of Gakpo was key and Harvey Elliot.

"Gakpo for me was the big revelation from yesterday, and maybe there's signs that there may be a new front three for Liverpool blossoming right now."
