Liverpool must have felt anxious about the visit of Leicester City on Saturday afternoon.
The Reds welcomed former boss Brendan Rodgers back to Anfield as he works wonders with the Foxes.
In their last two games, they had caused an upset against Tottenham Hotspur and then mauled Newcastle United 5-0.
So, if anyone was going to be capable of halting the league-leaders' perfect start to the season, it might well have been them.
However, it was business as usual as Jurgen Klopp's men got off to another flyer.

Sadio Mane scored five minutes before half-time to ensure they went in with the lead at the interval.
Even before that, though, the hosts were playing with a flourish.
Trent Alexander-Arnold whipped a ball in to James Milner early on but before he did, he pulled off a lovely skill on Ben Chilwell.
The ball bounced off the corner flag and back into play, before the Liverpool left-back slotted it through Chilwell's legs.
The England international was also involved in a slightly more controversial incident in the first half, surviving a VAR check for a red card following his stamp on Youri Tielemans.
It didn't look malicious, in Alexander-Arnold's defence.
Liverpool are already opening up quite the gap at the top of the table.
Leicester were the last side to pick up a point at Anfield, so surviving their visit could be yet another sign that Klopp's side are destined for great things this year.News Now - Sport News
