Liverpool fans, hello and welcome.

With European action very much on the agenda this week there’s plenty for us to get through, so we won’t waste time with long and drawn out introductions.

You should all know the score by now. Watch the video above for the latest headlines or read on below if added fluff is what tickles your fancy. Enjoy.

Gerrard on Suarez

To those thinking Steven Gerrard’s bromance with Luis Suarez ended when the Uruguayan took his leave for Barcelona, we’ve got news for you.

The ex-Liverpool captain, now of course with LA Galaxy, has rated Suarez in the top three players in the world.

It goes without saying that the other two in Gerrard’s elite bracket are Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, but the fact that Suarez beats players like Neymar and Gareth Bale is an achievement in itself.

"He was world class but he's gone to another level," said Gerrard, via BT Sport.

"Some of the goals he's scoring… they are goals I didn't think were possible.

"He seems to be at a place he wants to be and he seems settled. He's in the top three players in the world."

The hero's return

Sticking with a similar theme, Gerrard won’t be joining Liverpool on loan in January - but he will be training with them.

Speaking to BT Sport, the midfielder confirmed he is looking to learn a few things from Jurgen Klopp, but responded with ‘no’ when asked if he could make a move back to Anfield.

Here's some Twitter feedback to get you going:

Klopp the doctor

Lastly, an ebook set to be released in English tomorrow has confirmed how Klopp wanted to be a doctor before he became a footballer - which he did before he eventually became the manager fans know and love today.

The ebook, documenting Klopp’s final season in charge of Borussia Dortmund, includes quotes from the Anfield boss himself that confirm he still sees himself as having ‘helper syndrome’.

With that in mind, it's time to enjoy possibly our favourite Klopp memory of all time:
