Liverpool won their ninth game of the Premier League season with a 4-1 win over Everton as the Reds rapidly gather momentum.
A 3-2 defeat to West Ham at the London Stadium before the international break felt like the end of the world. I know it was a reactionary feeling, but Liverpool missed the chance to capitalise on a Chelsea draw while Manchester City had lost 2-0 the week before.
Now, with three successive Premier League wins (all with four goals scored), it looks like Liverpool have found their groove. We all know these Reds have the potential to go on incredible runs, as they did in 2019/20.
Jurgen Klopp guided Liverpool to their first-ever Premier League title. He did it by winning 99 points and setting an English top-flight record of 24 successive wins.
It’s already impossible to go unbeaten but Liverpool could set records for their attacking football. With the best player in the world running riot right now in Mohamed Salah, there is no reason why they shouldn’t keep going.
AFCON will only be a minor annoyance if Liverpool can keep Salah and Mane until they play Chelsea on January 2 and fly them out straight after the game.
That match has the potential to be an early Premier League title decider if it means Liverpool can overtake the Blues and remain there until Chelsea face Manchester City on January 15.
Liverpool are the best attacking team in Europe right now and have scored 43 goals in league football. That is more than any other side and only Bayern Munich (42) come close to matching this.
Most impressively, 25 of these goals have come away from home, which shows that Klopp’s Reds can go anywhere and smash anyone.
A massive win at Stamford Bridge would be the perfect way to assert dominance in the title race.
