The last time Liverpool topped the Premier League, it ended in tears as they were pipped at the post by Manchester City but here was a euphoric atmosphere as they returned to the summit with an emphatic victory over Watford on Super Sunday.
Check out what he said!
Jurgen Klopp's side have won eight of their 11 Premier League matches this season mounting a serious title challenge to competitors.
After winning the last match from Watford, it feels like unchartered territory for the Liverpool in Premier League era.
And now, they sit joint-top of the table, level on points with Chelsea and Manchester United.
"When I look at other teams with a chance of winning the league, we're the ones, who teams won't be able to live with," said Molby. "Chelsea might give you a better overall feel with their strength at the back, but Liverpool is the side, who, teams will struggle to deal with."
According to Molby, now that coaches are focusing on the style of football, it is a positive development for the game.
Over the match with Watford, Molby said, "They score one, two, three, and still they run quicker and harder. There is no respite. Some teams might think they can expose our frailties at the back, but down the other end, they can't deal with it."
"The win took us to the top, but Jurgen Klopp is right there, just to calm everyone down, still. It won't just be for the media, either he'll be saying the same in the dressing room as well."
"I know it's boring, but there are a lot of games to go, he doesn't know what reaction he will get from his squad with a full season."
Molby stated,"It's difficult to say what will happen, you don't quite know how other teams will do, and Klopp will be thinking its 26-years since the last title, so he's right to take one game at a time."
"The thing about Mane is even he isn't playing at full pelt, he brings something to the team, because he's different to the other attackers, stretches the play, possesses the proper pace. He was at full pelt against Watford though, and it was great to see," Molby said.
Molby said, "People always fret over the international break and how it can interrupt momentum, but it simply doesn't matter."
"In fact, maybe it is not a bad thing for ten days to take your mind off club football, take stock of what you've done and reflect upon a fantastic job so far."
He also had spells at Barnsley, Norwich, and Swansea; he would later manage the Swans, as well as Hulls and Kidderminster Harriers.
