Three seasons ago, it was Luis Suarez powering Liverpool towards a possible Premier League title.

This time, the fluid forward line is spearheaded by a trio of players that are classified as midfielders in Fantasy Premier League.

They dovetail well as a unit with Sadio Mane, Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino creating, scoring and thrilling but also working hard to win the ball back high up the field.

Between them, they have 16 league goals (Mane with six and the Brazil international duo with five each) and  10 assists.

Most importantly, they have delivered a large haul of precious Fantasy points:

Coutiho 75

Firmino 67

Mane 61

While it is impossible to get all three in your team at once, there is the possibility of fitting in two of them.

Ahead of this weekend's action when Liverpool visit Southampton, Team 33's Fantasy pundits Eoin Sheahan and Tommy Rooney share their advice for the post-international break gameweek.
