In this moment, Liverpool are in their best form in quite some time. Since an August 20th loss to Burnley, they are undefeated in all competitions.

That stretch has pushed the Reds into a three-way tie for first place in the Premier League. Though it's still early in the campaign, club legend Ian Rush believes they have enough to make a title push this year.

"At the moment we are playing better than anyone," Rush said (via ESPN FC). "We always look like we are going to score, and that's exciting. I think come around Christmas, if they are still in the same position then, yeah, probably [we can talk about winning the league]."

As for manager Jürgen Klopp, Rush loves what he's seen to this point and feels that the German's energy can help guide the club into a new era of success.

"I've been very impressed ... he's been fantastic, he's got the players playing well," Rush said. "I think all we are looking at is to try and keep it tight at the back, now that we are scoring goals ... he knows what the problem is, and he's addressing that at the moment."
