Could this be the year that Liverpool end their long wait for the Premier League trophy?
There’s certainly a long way to go but Jurgen Klopp’s side are currently top of the league after 11 matches as they look to win their first title since 1990.
With the quality of Philippe Coutinho, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino going forward, it’s easy to see why they’re being touted as possible title winners.

However, it’s not just talent alone that is making Liverpool look as though they could go all the way.
That’s because this current side appear to have fantastic team spirit and togetherness with no individuals ruining the harmony amongst the players.

And it seems Klopp has had a big part to play in that. In fact, the German has even come up with a motto that has helped the Liverpool players come together as a team.
Assistant coach Peter Krawietz has revealed the four-word acrostic everyone is currently using at the club as they go in search of glory.
“We've tried to create an atmosphere among the squad which is always really competitive,” Krawietz said, per Daily Mail.
“As a team, we know that the only way we can reach anywhere is by working together.
“We try to "live" this in our coaching team, to be a good example of how you can all work effectively as a group. Six, eight or 10 of us will always see more than just one or two. We can have more ideas if we all work together, discuss and find the best solutions.
“We try to show the players the same too. For them, it's really important. "TEAM: Together Everyone Achieves More" - that's what we always stress to them.
“It's an essential attitude because we aren't playing tennis, we're not playing an individual sport - we are playing football as a team.”
After their 6-1 victory over Watford on Sunday, the Reds reached the summit of the table for the first time since May 2014. While there is still plenty of time between now and the end of the season, belief is certainly growing in the Liverpool camp after just one defeat so far this campaign.
With the Merseysiders having already played Arsenal (A), Tottenham (A), Chelsea (A) and Manchester United (H) they’re well aware that the fixture list favours them in the run-up to the Christmas period.
With their next seven opponents in the Premier League being Southampton (A), Sunderland (H), Bournemouth (A), West Ham (H), Middlesbrough (A), Everton (A) and Stoke (H), Liverpool know they have a great opportunity to still be at the top of the table come their New Year’s Eve clash with Manchester City.
If they continue working together, they have every chance of ending their league drought.
