So will this be the season that Liverpool finally restore the glories of the past? Six wins out of six to start this campaign would certainly indicate that boss Jurgen Klopp and his squad are ready to take that step.

The German is now in his third full season in charge of the Reds and with each one there has been a marked improvement, pushing many to believe that the time is right for the Reds to mark their resurgence with silverware.

The summer signings of Naby Keita, Fabinho, Xherdan Shaqiri and Allison Becker mean the Liverpool squad deficiencies from 2017/18 have been addressed and Liverpool have strength in depth at every position.

The Reds currently sit joint top of the Premier League table and are two points clear in their Champions League group after the epic, last-gasp victory over Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday night.

It really has been a sensational start to 2018/19 for the Merseysiders and the scary thing is they still haven’t reached their full potential yet.

The Reds’ devastating triumvirate of Mo Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino are still yet to truly fire as a unit, but you just know it’s only a matter of time before they do.

The addition of Keita and Fabinho have pushed the likes of James Milner and Gini Wijnaldum to new levels so far this term, where both have been superb in the Reds engine room.

The real stars so far, though, have been the Liverpool backline led by the imperious Virgil van Dijk who has been a colossus and the partnership he has formed with Joe Gomez just gets better with every game.

With Trent Alexander-Arnold, Andy Robertson and Allison between-the sticks, it’s no exaggeration to say that the once-derided defensive unit could be the best in the Premier League.

The general consensus amongst the Reds faithful is this squad must mark their obvious quality with trophies this season and the signs are good but the next four games will tell us even more about this side.

After beating Southampton 3-0 on Saturday they will face Chelsea twice in succession (Carabao Cup and Premier League) before visiting Napoli and then at home to Manchester City.

Liverpool have just beaten Tottenham Hotspur and PSG and if they were to come out of this run of games unscathed, then you just have to wonder if this team can be stopped.
