Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown gets Liverpool shirt

While Roberto Firmino may well have got off to a flying start this season, Liverpool have still felt the need to go out and acquire themselves a brand new No.11.

Indeed, while the Reds' new signing may struggle with the physicality of the Premier League, she'll undoubtedly be able to make up for her lack of size with her supernatural powers of telekinesis.

Jurgen Klopp needs fortress Anfield to keep Liverpool in contention

Jurgen Klopp has demanded more from his Liverpool players despite their impressive form of late.

Liverpool's excellent 5-1 win over Hull City at Anfield on Saturday produced a bizarre yet welcome statistic.

At Anfield in the previous league campaign it took until April. 20, 2016 for the Reds to rack up a plus seven goal difference -- remarkable even by modern Liverpool's lowered standards.

Adam Lallana, James Milner superb as Liverpool thrash Hull City 5-1

A goal frenzy at Anfield included two calm penalty goals from James Milner as Jurgen Klopp's men downed Hull City 5-1.

Jurgen Klopp's side showed composure and invention when they had the ball, and a relentless, almost maniacal at times, desire to win it back when they didn't.

Jurgen Klopp must guard against complacency as Liverpool face Hull

Jurgen Klopp gets a bit over-excited in his press conference when talking about positivity in the squad.

Liverpool face Hull City on Saturday and it's a match which has occasionally highlighted their vulnerability in the so-called easier games.

Liverpool's best team since last winning the league was the one built by Rafa Benitez for their title challenge season in 2008-09 yet they found themselves 2-0 down at home to Phil Brown's side.

Steven Gerrard single-handedly dragged it back to 2-2 but it still ended up as one of numerous winter draws which held that team back to finish second in the table.

Chelsea will look to hit back after last week's 2-1 defeat at home to Liverpool when they travel to bitter rivals Arsenal on Saturday evening. 

Manchester United, meanwhile, are stuck in a rut. Yes, they won against League One Northampton in the EFL Cup on Wednesday night, but it's two defeats in a row in the league ahead of the visit of champions Leicester.

Elsewhere, Manchester City have a 100 percent record under Pep Guardiola, and the latest team to try and stop them, Swansea, lost 2-1...
