Newly installed Argentina captain Javier Mascherano believes that the club’s togetherness has been of major importance to their impressive start to the current League campaign.
The Reds share top spot with London club Chelsea, and have only lost once in the Premier League – to lily white side Tottenham Hotspur.
Mascherano thinks that the squad is performing on the pitch because of their amicable relationships off of it.
"All the players are giving everything for us and that is very important," Mascherano told the club’s official website.
"This is why the team is playing so well at the moment, it is because of our teamwork which has been fantastic.
"We are all very happy after the Bolton game because we were able to win another game and go back to the top of the table.
"We know how difficult it is to win at the Reebok because they are a very strong and a very physical team,” he concluded.
Mascherano’s Argentina side play Scotland during the international break before Premier League business resumes on Saturday afternoon with a trip to west London to take on Fulham who, under the tutelage or Roy Hodgson, have turned Craven Cottage into a formidable arena.
