Will Liverpool finally end their long wait for the Premier League title this season?
Although it’s still very early days, Jurgen Klopp’s side appear to stand a genuine chance.
After 10 rounds of matches, Liverpool are currently joint top of the Premier League table alongside Manchester City and, like the reigning champions, remain unbeaten.
However, City are top of the table by virtue of their superior goal difference.
Liverpool have scored 20 goals and conceded four this term. City, on the other hand, have netted 27 and let in just three.
Both teams have strength in depth in every area of the pitch.
Liverpool boast one of the strongest spines in the Premier League with Alisson Becker in goal, Virgil van Dijk at the heart of defence, the likes of Jordan Henderson, Georginio Wijnaldum, James Milner, Naby Keita or Fabinho to choose from in central midfield and, of course, the formidable front three upfront.
Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah have been joined this season by Xherdan Shaqiri, who has hit the ground running and looks a bargain at £13 million.
One man already dreading the thought of Liverpool potentially becoming champions of England for the first time since 1990 is Gary Neville.
The Manchester United captain-turned-Sky Sports pundit ran a question-and-answer session on Twitter on Thursday and was asked a question about Liverpool potentially winning this season’s Premier League title.
“Would you rather Salford won the league and so did Liverpool? Or Salford didn’t go up and Liverpool didn’t win the league?” was asked by @chazshiers.
Neville responded: “Option 3. I’d rather Salford got relegated than Liverpool win the league.”
Wow. Neville, in his role as the club’s joint-owner, loves Salford City - but he would rather the non-league club were relegated rather than Liverpool winning the league.
The chant ‘Gary Neville is a red… he hates Scousers!’ has never been more true.
Neville’s response has already been retweeted more than 1,500 times and ‘liked’ over 8,000 times, making it the most popular tweet of his Q&A session.
Liverpool fans will be reminding Neville about this tweet next May if their club are crowned Premier League champions at the end of the campaign.
