Liverpool assistant Pep Lijnders has praised the club's attacking corps after Sunday's win over Manchester United.

The Reds ran rampant at Old Trafford in a stunning 5-0 victory, leading Lijnders to compare the attackers to 'velociraptors in Jurassic Park'.

Speaking at a press conference ahead of Wednesday's trip to Preston for the Carabao Cup, Lijnders said: "We're shooting from everywhere!

"But no, I think it has a lot to do with how the team is playing so you can never judge scoring from just how we move the ball from the back, it's the whole package that creates

"Our front players constantly get into good positions to score and then the quality of our front three, we said they looked like velociraptors in Jurassic Park and they go for it.

"They are lethal and that is what we want, of course. So if you score in the right moments, these games against Manchester United are a great example of what can happen as well."
