Glad tidings for Liverpool supporters, who've witnessed a revival of their beloved club - a club that once competed for honours at the highest level.
Racking up nine points in the opening three games of the league season and toppling the reigning Premier League champions, Manchester United, was supposedly indicative of what was to come that season.
Only a fortnight later, the circumstances at Anfield looked bleak, with Liverpool often featuring a toothless and limp attack, a poor run of form attributed with the capitulation of Coutinho to the claws of injury.
A draw and loss at home to Swansea and Southampton respectively appeared to signify the end of Liverpool's purple patch. Alas, it was not to be, with Liverpool once again recreating the results that made their fans giddy once again; a vein of rich form that has coincided with the return of their talisman, Luis Suarez, who'd been serving a 10-game suspension imposed by the FA regarding an incident with Chelsea's Branislav Ivanovic.
An away brace against Sunderland marked Suarez's Premier League return, and he's maintained that pace 22 weeks into the Premier League season.
With a hat-trick against West Bromwich Albion complimented with a four-goal haul against Norwich, it is apparent why the Liverpool management was so intent on retaining the services of their dominant striker.
Furthermore, Suárez is on the verge of imprinting his name upon the Premier League history books by breaking current record holder Alan Shearer's 34-goal tally - the current league record.
The mercurial Liverpool hitman has netted 22 times in 17 appearances, and astonishing feat considering the fact he'd missed the season's opening five games.
With less than half of the Premier League season ahead of Suarez, scoring 13 times over the rest of the season will be sufficient for the Uruguayan to best Shearer's record.
Liverpool fans maybe a little too optimistic about a title challenge with likes of Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester City also competing for honours, but in current form, Liverpool fans should be relishing a return Champions League football come next year. Can Luis Suárez break the record?
Upon consideration of his goal-scoring exploits thus far, one would be foolish to rule out the possibility. Regardless, it is imperative that the Reds hold onto Suarez, a man integral to the club's title aspirations.
