However, Saturday's win was by no means flawless and again the full-back areas looked somewhat exploitable, with Alexander-Arnold failing to stop Willems for the opener and Robertson caught out in the second half when Krafth blazed over. In the first 6 minutes, Liverpool had completed 52 passes, while Newcastle had completed 4.

Liverpool started sluggishly, and seven minutes in Christian Atsu was afforded the time and space to find Jetro Willems, who sold Trent Alexander-Arnold with a drop of the shoulder before directing a stunning finish into the top-right corner. If you're only a time to time supporter, you can think "he might be better, he's better".

The Premier League is back after the global break and Liverpool remains the only side flawless to start the season.

The numbers of Liverpool's domination at home stretch further.

Such is the level of confidence in this Liverpool team that you never really gave credence to the idea that Newcastle would somehow conjure a shock.

"I've played against him often, he is a very talented defender".

The Mane-Salah spat looks to be something and nothing and having two players who are desperate to outscore each other having shared the Golden Boot last season is not exactly a huge problem!

Liverpool really did hit the nail on the head when they signed Mohamed Salah. They scored the last-minute victor. This led Jurgen Klopp to replace the Belgian with Firmino. When he didn't, the outcome was inevitable as Mane nudged it over the line. But, in the 37 minute Divock Origi went down due to a knock on the shin suffered earlier.

Mourinho has hailed the five-time Balon d'Or victor as a "phenomenon" - and predicted he will never stop scoring goals even after retirement as he tipped him to become a top performer in exhibition matches involving legends after he hangs up his boots. His idea is that we get the maximum out of every individual every single day that we are together.

Even after this goal, Liverpool kept searching for a fourth but Firmino was offside in the buildup to a chance that he created for Sadio Mane to complete his hattrick.

With City playing Norwich in Saturday's late game, the champions could be five points behind Liverpool by the time they kick off at Carrow Road. In the same way that there is no significance attached to a club record of 14 successive league wins - it is all numbers and noise.

For those paying attention, Salah celebrated with a punch of the air.
