Liverpool's sizzling start to the Premier League season has left their title rivals breathless and the red-hot leaders are expected to maintain their perfect record against Newcastle on Saturday.

Jurgen Klopp's side have seized the early initiative in the Premier League with four successive wins to open up a two-point lead over second placed Manchester City.

The European champions' relentless tempo has overwhelmed Norwich, Southampton, Arsenal and Burnley, sending a message that they are determined to make amends for narrowly failing to pip City to the trophy last season.

Then, in 1966, Liverpool won the League Title as Leeds finished as runners-up. Going by the old adage, "The enemy of my enemy is my friend," Manchester City have traditionally enjoyed better relations with Liverpool simply because Manchester United are both clubs' fiercest rivals .

With the Premier League title race so tight at present, who do Liverpool fans think poses them the toughest challenge this season as they seek to finally

Arsenal's Dani Ceballos is new to English football after joining on loan from Real Madrid and the Spain midfielder admitted to being gob-smacked at the intensity Liverpool displayed in their 3-1 victory against the Gunners in August.

"I had never seen anything like it.

I've not seen up until now a team that plays better, that presses better. That game had quite an impact on me," Ceballos told the Daily Mail.

"They suck the air out of you. You spend so much time defending and when you want to catch your breath and get on the ball for a bit, they've taken it from you again.

"I think Jurgen Klopp now has the team he first had in mind when he started four years ago."

That glowing testimony underlines the size of the task facing City as they try to stop Liverpool winning their first English crown since 1990.

Mane scores 2 as Liverpool extends perfect EPL start

Mane scores 2 as Liverpool extends perfect EPL start Sadio Mane scored twice as Liverpool came back from a goal down to beat Newcastle 3-1 on Saturday and extended its perfect start to the Premier League season with a fifth straight win. Newcastle left-back Jetro Willems took full advantage of Liverpool's slow start to score the opener, but Mane's goals and a strong contribution from substitute Roberto Firmino saw Liverpool take the win. "We needed 20-25 minutes to really arrive in the game," Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp said. "They scored a goal, which was a wonderful finish, and then we started.

However, Liverpool now face a very tricky run of fixtures, taking on Tottenham, PSG, Chelsea twice, Napoli and City in their next seven games. Neymar has surprisingly left Liverpool out, who have been dubbed City's biggest title rivals . Neymar has tipped United to finish second, Chelsea third and

Manchester City fans were overjoyed with their side's 2-1 victory over title rivals Liverpool on Thursday night. The pressure of the game was keenly felt It was left to Leroy Sane to provide the game's decisive moment 18 minutes from time, when he fired across Liverpool 's goalkeeper Alisson.

City may have won the last two Premier League titles in scintillating fashion, but Liverpool look better than ever this term and Newcastle are unlikely to halt their progress at Anfield this weekend.

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.

Pep Guardiola's team are unbeaten and have already thrashed West Ham and Brighton, but their lone slip -- a draw against Tottenham -- allowed Liverpool to seize pole position and they can't afford another against second bottom Norwich.

Across Manchester, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's United can only dream of gate-crashing the title race after a disappointing start showed how far they have fallen off the pace.

- Maguire in spotlight -

United have won only once in their first four games, adding to the incentive for their England defender Harry Maguire to inspire a victory against his former club Leicester.

Jürgen Klopp has said Liverpool will have to improve in the second half of the season to deliver the club’s first championship since 1990.

Liverpool lost at all four of their closest challengers last season but that was before Robertson, Van More than half of the players who represented Liverpool that day have since left the club – Martin Skrtel Klopp’s side did not pick up a single point in their away matches at their four closest rivals .

Maguire is the world's most expensive defender after his £80 million close-season move from Leicester, but he is yet to play like it, as his creaky showing in England's midweek Euro 2020 qualifier against Kosovo emphasised.

Leicester will arrive at Old Trafford above Maguire's men in the table after an impressive unbeaten start.

But, whatever his shortcomings in some areas, Maguire's personality has made an impression on his new team-mates, who expect him to come good soon.

"It's been seamless," said United reserve keeper Lee Grant.

"Harry has definitely slotted straight in, in terms of the social side and in terms of his mentality and attitude, which has been first class.

"The most important thing, though, is his quality and he was able to show that against Chelsea. We could all see he is quite at home in front of the Old Trafford crowd and quite at home as a Manchester United player."

Mauricio Pochettino must hope the closure of the European transfer window lifts the mood at Tottenham, who host fourth placed Crystal Palace looking to secure only their second win.

Credit Cards Are Now Offering 0% Interest Until 2020 Find out more on Finder Ad Finder.com.au An application seeking leave to appeal has been lodged, following the Victorian Court of Appeal's dismissal of Pell's appeal in August. The 78 year-old former advisor to the Pope is currently serving a maximum six-year prison sentence for the sexual abuse of two former choirboys at St Patrick's Cathedral, while he was the archbishop of Melbourne.

After a comfortable 1-0 victory over Everton on Sunday, Liverpool lead their Merseyside rivals by five points and, even with Arsenal to come at the Emirates Stadium next week, can be relatively confident of securing fourth place and qualification for the Champions League.

Liverpool might inspire enmity in many United fans, but they also have something Manchester City do not appear to have earned yet: respect. While Liverpool can be loathed, delve just a little deeper and you will also find a genuine respect among United fans for their rival 's history, success, resilience and

Pochettino was concerned that speculation over the futures of several Tottenham players, including Christian Eriksen, had unsettled his squad.

But Eriksen remains with Tottenham in the final year of his contract and Pochettino said: "He was always happy. He never said he wasn't happy here.

"Everyone of course has aims, goals, challenges. His qualities are there and important for the team."

Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham will become only the third player aged 21 or younger to score two or more goals in three consecutive Premier League games, matching the achievement of Cristiano Ronaldo and Dele Alli, if he bags another brace at Wolves.
