"But it doesn't really feel like that because there are two reasons in comparison with a year ago: free-flowing football in a few games and Man City and maybe Chelsea and a few others play a very good season as well". If this weekend's results align themselves in Liverpool's favour, the Reds could head into the November worldwide break as table toppers.
Jordan Henderson has been cleared to feature against Fulham on Sunday in a boost to Liverpool's hopes of getting back to winning ways. We have to admit a lot of things are better than previous year by the start of November, but spectacular football in each game hasn't happened.
Indeed, Fulham's summer signings have combined to contribute several goals for the Cottagers - they have scored 11 goals and would be fifteenth in the table if the table was based on goals scored.
"On the other hand, they've conceded, but you will never score a goal against a team like Fulham with their quality only because you go into the game with the wrong attitude and think about scoring, scoring, scoring". The boys looked much more mature, but not in the last game. Even if it's not Premier League, it's kind of this big gap. He's just back from injury, but if he clicks then it improves the entire team.
Irrespective of who leads Liverpool's attack on Sunday, it would be a worrisome attack for Fulham.
In an interview with Liverpoolfc.com, Shaqiri said he has adapted surprisingly well so far, but believes more will follow as he gets to know the team and his manager more.
I think he might play the same 11 as he did against Huddersfield. After the disappointing showing in Serbia, if the Egyptian clicks into form for Liverpool, Fulham will be in for a horrid afternoon.
Roberto Firmino of Liverpool is substituted for Jordan Henderson of Liverpool during the Premier League match between Liverpool FC and West Ham United at Anfield on August 12, 2018 in Liverpool, United Kingdom. The Argentine's CV, however, includes Valencia, Athletico Madrid and Sevilla in his most recent employers indicating his class.
For Liverpool in the Premier League, Mohamed Salah is averaging a goal or assist every 66 minutes against newly promoted teams (4 goals, 5 assists in 592 minutes).
Fulham head to Liverpool tomorrow and Jokanovic's position will be under increased scrutiny after his latest comments, which followed Monday's defeat away to Huddersfield Town.
Jokanovic remains without the injured Joe Bryan and Kevin McDonald, and he said of their trip to Anfield: 'Liverpool are coming from a defeat and are hurt; we are hurt more than Liverpool and they will show some different imagination than the last game.
