In recent years, Liverpool has enjoyed the kind of form that has driven them to Premier League and UEFA Champions League wins.
The Reds have been gravy this season, and they are currently flying. This is a far cry from their stuttering form last season when they came close to missing out on a top-four spot.
Injuries afflicted Jurgen Klopp's team, and several key players were also out of form. However, there have been no big injuries this season, and every player appears to be giving their all.
In Europe, the Anfield side has also been in imperious form. They won 1-0 over AC Milan on Tuesday to finish first in Group B with a perfect record.
They were the first English club to win all six group games in a Champions League campaign due to their efforts.
At the San Siro, the Reds comprehensively outplayed AC Milan. From the minute the referee blew his whistle to start the game, the disparity in class between the two teams was obvious.
Klopp shuffled his lineup eight times. Only Alisson Becker, Sadio Mane, and Mohamed Salah remained from the starting lineup against Wolves at the weekend. Despite this, Liverpool had enough firepower to defeat the visitors.
AC Milan could not cope with Liverpool's ferocity and were forced to play for long periods in their half. The Reds could take all three points despite Fikayo Tomori's 29th-minute opener.
After falling behind, Liverpool never panicked, scoring goals through Mohamed Salah and Divock Origi on either side of half-time to seal the victory. This was hardly really a match, as Liverpool won without shifting gears.
Liverpool has been the best team in the Champions League group stage this season.
The Reds have been magnificent and unstoppable. They were in the death group with Atletico Madrid, Porto, and AC Milan, but they made it look too simple. They not only defeated every opponent in the group, but they also finished with a perfect record.
Liverpool's dominance of the so-called "death group" is a message to their opponents. The Reds want to win the Champions League for the eighth time. To stop them, you'll need something unique.
