Liverpool can win the Premier League this season.

Following their 1-0 victory over Swansea at Anfield last Sunday, the Reds currently lie 7th in the table. But a win today against Newcastle United would move them up to 6th, six points off leaders Leicester City and just four being second placed Arsenal.

Their Capital One Cup victory over Southampton in midweek means that Liverpool have now won seven matches from their previous eight under new manager Jurgen Klopp - something that has given them huge momentum.

Fixtures

The Reds have climbed up the Premier League table during that time and, with favourable fixtures on the horizon, there is real belief that they can continue the rise. Their next six opponents in the league are: Newcastle, West Brom, Watford, Leicester, Sunderland and West Ham which takes them through to mid-January.

And whilst we're on the subject of fixtures, Liverpool have already travelled to both Manchester clubs, Arsenal, Chelsea, Tottenham, Everton and Stoke - losing just once.

Europa League

Sunday's narrow win against Swansea was the first time they've managed three points after playing in the Europa League on the Thursday. However, after safely qualifying with a game to spare, they can now put the competition to the back of their minds until the round of 32 commences in mid-February.

Return

The weekend's match also saw the return of two hugely influential players: Daniel Sturridge and Jordan Henderson. 

Henderson, who hasn't played since August, will give the club a massive lift with his fantastic work-rate and passion. Having the captain back in the squad ahead of the congested fixture list over Christmas will be extremely important for Klopp.

Liverpool fans may understandably be a bit more cautious in welcoming Sturridge back to first-team action. The 26-year-old has had an injury-plagued two years so getting excited over his return could a little premature.

However, after starting against Southampton on Wednesday and notching two goals in the process, Liverpool have a world-class striker at their disposal and he has managed an incredible 37 Premier League goals in 47 appearances.

Providing he stays fit, he could be pivotal in where the Reds finish come the end of the season.

Everything seems to be falling into place at just the right time for the Merseysider's at the moment.

Earlier this campaign, their season seemed set to be yet another fruitless one as they sat in mid-table losing matches at home to the likes of West Ham and Crystal Palace.

But since arriving in October, Klopp has helped galvanise the squad and, with all the big teams stuttering, Liverpool have a great chance of winning their first title in 25 years.
