Liverpool will be more than happy with how the new Premier League season has begun results-wise. It might be difficult if the Reds win each of their next three fixtures, but going under the radar is no bad thing.

Manchester City is leading the way and Spurs are currently ahead of Liverpool in the table (on goals scored), while Chelsea and Manchester United are the clubs closest to being in crisis (already) with only five matches having been played.

Next weekend, Liverpool faces West Ham United, with Tottenham and Brighton to come after that. Getting maximum points there could signal a side ready to embark on another title challenge, though Jürgen Klopp's men will need to take it one step at a time.

As well as matches against that trio before the October international break, Liverpool will also play two Europa League group games — against LASK on Wednesday in Austria and Union Saint-Gilloise at Anfield on the fifth of next month.

Here are the two stories from today that you shouldn't miss, with talk of a title push already beginning in some quarters.

Joe Cole and Peter Crouch agree about Liverpool

Is it too early to think about a title push for Liverpool this season? Not according to TNT Sports pundits Joe Cole and Peter Crouch, who are both confident that the Reds can go close.

"I think Liverpool can push City [the closest]. We see Arsenal improving as well, so they'll be closer," Cole said. "As much credit as I want to give Liverpool for their recruitment and Jürgen Klopp for the job what he looks like he's done already — and [Mikel] Arteta at Arsenal — I think a lot comes down to how City react."

"City are obviously the side to beat," fellow pundit Peter Crouch added. "City probably will have just too much, but if you think about the way Liverpool were last year and the improvements they've made, they are right back in the mix."

Liverpool has pulled off another transfer masterstroke

Dominik Szoboszlai has made a flying start to the new season. After moving to Anfield for $76m (£61m/€70m) over the summer, the 22-year-old has slotted straight in with his new club.

"I love him," former Liverpool striker Peter Crouch told 90Min this week when asked about the Hungarian. "I'm jumping right on the bandwagon. Obviously, I've got a lot of Liverpool fans as friends and a lot of Scousers still in the family as well, and they absolutely love him.

"He's a class act. I saw him a little bit beforehand [prior to signing for Liverpool] but it's surprised me how well he's taken to playing at Anfield. Even in the first game, straight away he was like a Rolls Royce in there. He's a class act. He could end up being one of the signings of the season — he's that good."
