Liverpool head into the international break top of the Premier League with four wins from four, a peerless 100% record.
The Reds have picked up where they left off last season by rattling off victories against Norwich, Southampton, Arsenal and, most recently, Burnley.
That leaves them two points ahead of Manchester City, who dramatically dropped points at home to Spurs in their second game.
Already, it looks likely to be a two-horse title race, with last season’s runner-up gaining a very early advantage.
But historically, it’s been difficult for teams who fly out of the blocks to maintain their momentum.
In fact, Opta have pointed out that the team who have topped the table at the end of August have failed to go on to win the league in 10 of the past 12 seasons.
The only exceptions were Chelsea in 2009/10 and 2014/15.
This time last season, the points tallies of Liverpool and City were the same, with the Londoners lodged in between.
Some supporters will justifiably be thinking it’s far too early to talk about the title race.
But clearly Liverpool need to find a way to maintain the momentum they’ve built so far until City visit at Anfield in November.
