It has been a rather marvellous season so far for Liverpool.

The Reds currently top the Premier League table by 13 points, with a game in hand to boot. Not only that, they are safely through to the Champions League knockout stages after topping their group, and they have already picked up two trophies – the UEFA Super Cup and the Club World Cup. They are still unbeaten in the league and have lost just three games in all competitions – and even then, one was on penalties against Manchester City in the Community Shield, and another was versus Aston Villa in the Carabao Cup quarter-final when they were forced to field the youngest side in their history as the entirety of the senior squad was in Qatar.
After 20 matches in the league, they have won 19 matches and drawn one. It is a domination of the division that we have rarely ever seen. Incredibly, though, the Anfield outfit may just be about to get even better.
The big fat Liverpool quiz of 2019 – how much do you remember about the last year at Anfield?
We have even somehow seen improvements in the past few weeks. After managing just two clean sheets in their first 15 league matches of the campaign, they have now not conceded in each of their last five. The injuries to Joel Matip and Dejan Lovren could have caused Jurgen Klopp huge problems, yet it has ended up being a blessing in disguise. Joe Gomez has stepped up the plate and may just have made the spot alongside Virgil van Dijk his own.
Now, the remaining fixture list may lead the even better performances. From November 23rd to January 5th – 43 days – Liverpool took part in 14 matches. That is an average of just over one every three days. The congestion even meant they had to play two matches in 24 hours. However, in the next 43 days, they will play half as many matches. This will enable Klopp to keep his players even fresher, and could mean he is able to play his strongest players – as long as they are not injured – in each and every game.
It is the news no other fan in the Premier League wants to hear – we may not have seen the best of this team yet.
