Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp on big Champions League rout: No one could have defended against Mane, Salah, Jota

Jurgen Klopp hailed his Liverpool front three as unstoppable after Diogo Jota, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah found the net in a 5-0 demolition of Atalanta .

In what was billed as Liverpool's toughest test of the Champions League group stage against last season's quarterfinalists Klopp's side hit exhilarating heights to crush Atalanta with Jota scoring a superb hat-trick that took his tally to seven in 10 games since his $53.5 million move from Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Mane and Salah added further gloss to the scoreline and had their manager purring about a performance that ranks among the best by any club in the competition so far this season.

"It's about the players, it was difficult against us tonight, I don't think anyone could've defended against Sadio Mane, Mo Salah and Diogo Jota so it wasn't about the tactics or our system it was about the team."

It is a debate that Klopp was desperate to cool in his postmatch press conference, where he insisted that Jota's success should not be seen as a negative for Firmino.

" Obviously [Salah and Mane] are two world class players, we all know their quality which makes it easier for me to do my job because they are outstanding and we had a great game together today."
