Champions League winners in June, five points clear at the top of the Premier League table in mid-September and on an incredible winning streak that stretches back to March.
So just how long can Liverpool keep winning? Is Sergio Aguero on course for the Golden Boot? And why is Chelsea’s current season stirring memories of a past title-winning campaign?
BBC Sport looks into some of the weekend’s Premier League statistics.
Reds keep on rolling
Five wins from five have given Liverpool the perfect start to the season as they sit top of the Premier League with 15 points, five ahead of Manchester City.
It also means they have become only the fourth team to win 14 top-flight fixtures in a row, equalling Arsenal’s record of 14 in 2002 and putting them one behind Manchester City’s run of 15 in a row this year and four behind the 18 consecutive league wins City achieved in 2017.
Arsenal’s run was ended by a 2-2 draw at West Ham on 24 August 2002 while Tottenham brought City’s 15-game winning run to an end last month. Their 18-game winning run, meanwhile, was halted by Crystal Palace, who held Pep Guardiola’s side to a goalless draw on 31 December 2017.
So what chance have Liverpool of surpassing Manchester City’s record run? These are their next five games in the Premier League:
