Captain Jordan Henderson believes Liverpool's devastating attack is as good as any team's around the globe.
Roberto Firmino, Philippe Coutinho, and Sadio Mane have been virtually unplayable in recent weeks as Jurgen Klopp's side has soared at the top of the Premier League table.
Read what Henderson said for the front trio.
Firmino, Coutinho, and Mane, all continued their outstanding form in Sunday's 6-1 rout of Watford.
The trio shares the honor of being the Red's top scorers with six goals each so far in this season.
"It's a pleasure to be playing with them. They are all fantastic players, every single one of them is top class," he continued.
Well, with Mane adding pace and a clinical finish to the already impressive work of Coutino and Firmino, Sunday's demolition of Watford was no surprise.
The work the whole team is now doing is the reason they are top of the league, and dreaming of glory.
Henderson said, "Their understanding of the game, not only going forward, but also the work rate they all give for the team is important."
"It's our job to ensure that we offer protection for them when they are going forward and expressing themselves. They get a tremendous support and there is a real balance."
"Sadio was a big talent at Southampton; you could see the ability he had," Henderson said. "Since he's come here, he's gone up another level, and you have to give credit to the manager and to his staff for that, as well as to Sadio himself for the work he's put in."

But the 26-year-old player is reluctant to draw comparisons between the two teams.
