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.

Molby's take on this

Molby's take on this

"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."

Football has been moving towards reward attacking play more in the past fives years or so.

According to Molby, now that coaches are focusing on the style of football, it is a positive development for the game.

Defensive football is regarded as the easy way out, but playing free-flowing football is difficult.

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."

Regarding Jurgen Klopp, Molby said:

Regarding Jurgen Klopp, Molby said:

"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."

In Jurgen's words: "We are in a good moment, and have to stay in it.": Molby.

In Jurgen's words:

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.

"When you are doing as well as Liverpool are, International breaks do not matter."

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."

Molby is a winner of two league titles and two FA Cups, and also enjoyed a glittering career with Ajax and Denmark.
