Last season, after 9 premier league games, Liverpool only had 10 points and were 12th in the premier league.
Rodgers needed time and he has been able to implement his methods perfectly with the Reds, brought new players and the difference is substantial.
Liverpool are joint second in the premier league with 20 points and are considered a major threat by Manchester City’s midfield star Yaya Toure.
Yaya’s brother Kolo Toure left City this summer to join Liverpool on a bosman. He has been one of the coups of the season as the veteran has immediately started impressing.
Reds are currently 4 points clear of 2012 premier league champions after City suffered heartbreak defeat against Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea.
Praising Liverpool and specifically their strike force SAS, Yaya Toure claimed:
“Liverpool are a big threat at the moment because they have a strong squad and their strikers, Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge are scoring goals at will”
There is no denying the fact that SAS form the best attacking partnership in the premier league for now. Sturridge tops the goal scoring chart with 8 goals while Suarez has taken the league by a storm after returning from his ban with 6 goals in just 4 games.
Suarez and Sturridge are surely Liverpool’s best hope if they are to achieve their goals this season. The defenses fear them and if they remain fit, expect more havoc and Goals.
