Liverpool have started the season in scintillating form including a win against Manchester United.

The Reds have lost just one game in the Premier League so far this season - slipping to Southampton by a narrow margin.

The Rogers revival has started to take shape on Merseyside.

The return of the glory days at Anfield - when the club dominated the footballing world -  could soon be upon us.

No European football is a positive

Liverpool's lack of European football means that there will be no distractions for the five time European cup winners.

Liverpool will have played less games than their title rivals which may prove key in the latter stages of the season.

The most prolific strike-force in the league?

During "King Kenny`s" reign on the throne, the team were unable to finish off teams.

How times have changed for Liverpool under Rogers.

They have a strike force known as SAS (Sturridge and Suarez) which has proved to be one of the greatest partnerships in the league this season and possibly one of the greatest the club has seen for some time.

The clubs revival under Brendan Rogers is remarkable, following a series of transfers for expensive overrated English talent - Andy Carroll £35 million, Jordan Henderson £16-20 million  and Stewart Downing £20 million.

A change of manager at the club symbolised a new dawn in transfer policy.

January dealings for Philippe Coutinho at £8.5 million and Daniel Sturridge for £12 million have proved to be a remarkable double coup for "the Reds" and have went on to become firm fan favourites.

The attacking trio of Sturridge, Suarez and Coutinho is one which will strike fear into defenders in the Premier League and one which other clubs dream of.

No Manchester United

Manchester United are currently undergoing the biggest transformation the club has seen, with one of the greatest managers in football Sir Alex Ferguson bowing out after 26 years at the helm of the Old Trafford club.

Things haven't gone too well for his successor David Moyes,  as Man United sit eighth.

David Moyes also was subject to a Twitter trend '#Moyesout' after defeats against rivals Manchester City and Liverpool.

The club have won just one home game all season against relegation contenders Crystal Palace.

The trend continued at the weekend with a 1-1 draw against Southampton, a team who the United faithful will say they should beat.

This year is a transition year for the club and a title challenge in the first season may be too big of an ask.

Signing Of The Summer?

Keeping Luis Suarez at the club may prove key.

The striker was described by Steven Gerrard as "the third best player in the world" and the saga proved that player power will not always work.

The Runner-up PFA Player of the Year was the subject of a summer saga that never seemed to end with Real Madrid strongly linked with a move and Arsenal infamously bidding £40,000,001 for the striker due to claims of an obscure buy-out clause in the Uruguayan contract.

Luis Suarez returned to action after serving a 10 match ban and has proved to be a key player for Livepool along with leading scorer Daniel Sturridge.

The Contenders

With Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United all hiring new managers for the new campaign, it may take time for their ideas and coaching methods to bare fruit.

Arsenal will not win the league this year because of a lack of silverware at the club in recent years and this may prove to be too much pressure in final stages of the campaign.

The Gunners have started well following an opening day defeat to Aston Villa, with Aaron Ramsey and Mesut Özil proving to be key men, but whether they can sustain that form throughout the season remains to be seen.
