Reds have started their season in style, 4 wins out of 4 and especially three in the league without even conceding a single goal thanks to their solid defense and quality goal keeper.
With such top performances, Liverpool are ahead of Bayern and Barca in this week’s AP rankings after defeating their rivals Manchester United 1-0 at Anfield.
The merseysiders lead the rankings with 149 points while the European and Spanish champions are in 2nd and 3rd place with 130 and 118 points respectively.
Here are the top 5 rankings:
- Liverpool (149)
- Bayern (130)
- Barca (118)
- Juventus (112)
- Arsenal (99)
Not many really expected Liverpool to start the season that strongly.
However, against all obstacles they are the only team left in the premier league with the perfect record.
It is too early to say that Brendan Rodgers’s men are now title contenders.
They have always lacked consistency, if they can overcome that then for sure at least Champions League qualification will be guaranteed.
