So can Liverpool win the title? Leeds get promoted?
"Liverpool's growing maturity under Klopp led to them being touted as the team most likely to challenge Manchester City - and their vast transfer outlay means this must be an expectation this season.
This is Klopp's third full season - and he had most of the 2015-16 campaign - so realistically, given the investment and talent at his disposal, he should be expected to win a trophy this term.
The Premier League title should be a realistic aim, although City are understandably still favourites and Chelsea will harbour renewed title ambition of their own after their perfect start put them top of the table ahead of Liverpool on goal difference.
"We all thought Liverpool would challenge for the title this season and so far they look the business," said former England winger Chris Waddle, co-commentator for BBC Radio 5 live at Wembley.
