Sixteen games into the 2018/19 Premier League season and Liverpool are top of the table and the only unbeaten team in the league.

This weekend saw the Reds beat Bournemouth 4-0 away from home while Manchester City, who were also unbeaten heading into gameweek 16, lost 2-0 at Chelsea.

Liverpool now sit one point above Pep Guardiola's men and there's a growing feeling that this could actually be their year.

From Alisson in goal to Mohamed Salah up front, Liverpool have been fantastic in every department having scored 34 goals and conceded just six in the Premier League.

It's a wonder who can stop the Reds at this point, with City, Tottenham, Chelsea and Arsenal all trying and failing to beat them thus far.

Manchester United are next up for Liverpool but the game is at Anfield, which has become a fortress in recent years.

It's in defence where Liverpool have improved most. Last season they conceded 38 league goals but this time around, with Alisson, Virgil van Dijk and Andy Robertson, they've been solid.

At this rate Klopp's side will concede less than 20 goals across the whole campaign, which would be a remarkable feat considering how leaky they used to be.

A lot can change in a couple of months, though, as evidenced by how some of Liverpool players' transfer values have soared since the beginning of the season.

CIES Observatory have conducted a latest study on the rising values in world football and three Liverpool players are in the top 10.

The study shows that Sadio Mane, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Robertson are all now worth over €25m more than they were in September. Here are the details.

ANDY ROBERTSON (3RD)

September 1, 2018 - €47.8m

December 1, 2018 - €79.8m (+€32m)

Liverpool FC v Southampton FC - Premier League

SADIO MANE (7TH)

September 1, 2018 - €95.7m

December 1, 2018 - €125.3m (+€29.6m)

Liverpool FC v Fulham FC - Premier League

TRENT ALEXANDER-ARNOLD (9TH)

September 1, 2018 - €83.4m

December 1, 2018 - €109.2m (+€25.8m)

Liverpool FC v Everton FC - Premier League

Staggering. It's no surprise to see the trio's values all increase, but Mane and Alexander-Arnold now being worth over €100m is pretty insane.

What Klopp must now ensure is that his players stay put, because there's no question that Europe's giants will start to come calling in the next few transfer windows.
