A stunning 4-0 victory for Liverpool over Merseyside rivals Everton has reignited the ambition from the fans that winning the Premier League is a realistic goal.
However, with the squad sizes of all three teams currently above them; Arsenal, Manchester City and Chelsea, the title will be out of their reach. In comparison, the race for fourth place seems to be changing every week.
Merseyside rivals Everton, Tim Sherwood's rejuvenated Spurs side and a Juan Mata inspired Manchester United will all be challenging the Reds come the end of the season.
Liverpool's notable absence from the Champions League in recent years is hurting their loyal fans, who are desperate to get back in Europe's elite. They certainly have the players, especially in attack with the lethal partnership of Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge proving deadly in the league.
Consistency will be the key for Brendan Rodgers' men, who have slipped up recently against Aston Villa and Chelsea. One thing they do have in their favour though, in comparison to the sides around them, is that they are not in any European competition.
United and Spurs both made it through the group stages in both the Champions and Europa Leagues respectively.
