Last season was a fantastic one in terms of goalscoring from Liverpool’s menacing front three. Mo Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane bagged themselves 91 goals between them last season and former Red, Harry Kewell has taken to the Liverpool website to describe them as frightening. Now, though, the fans have been making predictions on how many goals they think they’ll get.
Roberto Firmino @MoSalah
91 goals last season. How many this season? https://t.co/iRmA76SZqc

Most teams would be over the moon to have just one of Firmino, Salah or Mane and it seems crazy that Jurgen Klopp has all three at his disposal. The goal setting trio are probably the most lethal in Europe at the moment and it seems like there isn’t a single defence in the world that would be able to contain all three of them over the course of 90 minutes. This season, they’ll be keen to back-up last season’s 91 goals and the fans have been guessing how many they’ll bag.
Some fans have gone for utterly ludicrous numbers of 150+ which is simply unattainable, however, a lot of fans believe that getting over 100 goals in all competitions is not only attainable but a realistic target for the trio. Last season saw Liverpool compete in 56 games, and if they hadn’t gone out of the domestic cups so early their front three would have had more games to thrive in, which means they have a very good chance of smashing the 100 goal barrier if they can hold their own in the FA and Carabao Cups.

They will scored more than hundred goals this season.

The fans are delighted with how well their trio did last season and they’ll be desperate for them to better the 91 and break through the 100 mark.
