Liverpool have been in scintillating form during the early part of the season and have stormed to the top of the Premier League table courtesy of four wins in six games. Jurgen Klopp’s men have also won their opening two Champions League encounters.
Two weeks ago, the Reds overcame AC Milan 3-2, before thrashing Porto 5-1 on Tuesday night.
Those European victories have put Liverpool two points ahead of Atletico Madrid at the top of Group B.
Supporters have been left purring by Liverpool’s attacking prowess this season as the goals have continued to fly in.
The Anfield side have racked-up 15 efforts in the Premier League and eight goals in the Champions League.
Klopp has an abundance of attacking talent at his disposal, with top scorer Mohamed Salah already finding the back of the net on eight occasions.

Sadio Mane has found his scoring boots once again and has notched four goals, while Diogo Jota has registered three efforts.
Meanwhile, Roberto Firmino, who is yet to be handed a start this season, came off the bench to score twice in the victory over Porto and got off the mark in the Premier League as a substitute on the opening day of the campaign.
But Klopp is not a man to stand still and, according to Calciomercato, the German boss now wants to sign Moussa Diaby from Bayer Leverkusen.
The winger moved to Germany from Paris Saint-Germain two years ago and has impressed in the Bundesliga.

Diaby has scored 21 goals and assisted a further 24 strikes during 90 appearances for the German side.
The 22-year-old, who made his debut for France earlier this month, has also been a regular in the Europa League and scored four goals in eight games last season before his side were knocked out by Young Boys.
If he did move to Anfield, Diaby would surely excel in the Liverpool team if he could force his way into the starting line-up.
The Reds’ front three continue to run rings around opposition defences and Liverpool have signalled their intentions to go in search of their second Premier League trophy in three years with their early-season form.
Meanwhile, star performer Salah was this week lauded by former Liverpool striker Dean Saunders.
“Right now, as we speak, who’s better than him?” Saunders told talkSPORT.
“Eight goals in eight games from right-wing – he’s not playing down the middle. He just looks unstoppable.
“There’s Messi and Ronaldo, who are on their own – but right now they’re not as good as Salah.”
