Jurgen Klopp reserved special praise for Liverpool's attacking players as they starred in the 7-0 win over Manchester United.

Cody Gakpo, Darwin Nunez and Mohamed Salah all netted twice each, while Roberto Firmino added his name to the scoresheet at Anfield on Sunday.

Salah's goal was his 129th for the Reds, making him Liverpool's leading scorer in the Premier League ahead of Robbie Fowler.

"It was one of the best performances for a long, long time," Klopp told liverpoolfc.com, following the Reds' biggest-ever win over Man Utd. "In a way I think everybody saw how good the boys can be."

The win boosted Liverpool's top-four hopes and they are now only three points behind fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur with a match in hand.

Indeed, while it was Man Utd on the receiving end this time around, Michael Owen believes Liverpool are capable of playing like that against any team they face.

"I don’t care who you put in front of them, at Anfield, when they [Liverpool] are on it, they are simply unstoppable," the ex-Liverpool striker said.

Intriguingly, the next visitors to Anfield in the Premier League are leaders Arsenal, on Sunday 9 April.

'We must be ready to fight on Saturday'

Klopp was keen to play down Sunday's win, and shift the focus immediately on to Saturday's trip to AFC Bournemouth, who Liverpool beat 9-0 in the reverse fixture.

"I don’t know, does anybody know when we won against Bournemouth 9-0 how the next result was?" Klopp said. "We won [against Newcastle]? So, that’s good - but in the last second, right? It was a completely different game.

"Now we have five days or so of time to prepare for Bournemouth. They were unlucky yesterday against Arsenal not to get a point at least. We have to make sure we are ready for that fight."
