But, like a golfer who finds himself putting for a Major having once been putting to keep his Tour card and his livelihood, the pressure cooker of the Premier League is all relative to Howe.

"He deserved it today and he's had an awesome career so I hope we're going to win something this season together but I will not take it".

Klopp's side can move to the top of the table should they claim all three points against Bournemouth.

Liverpool equaled its club record of 17 Premier League matches unbeaten.

Moreover they need to cope with expectations of the media and fans; because they were so sumptuously special last season that we need more of that this season.

The Reds kept their 10th clean sheet of the Premier League season against the Cherries and limited them to even less than a handful of opportunities to get a shot on target.

The former Roma and Chelsea man netted 44 goals in all competitions in his first season at Anfield.

James Milner has made what is his 500th Premier League appearance in Saturday's meeting with Bournemouth, becoming the second youngest player to reach the milestone. Only one player in Europe has more league strikes since the start of last season: Lionel Messi. The extraordinary campaign that brought 44 goals saw him play mostly on the right side of a three-man attack, the movement of Firmino and Sadio Mane creating the space in which a formerly impressive but hardly otherworldly forward achieved barely credible feats.

But the Egyptian striker - who became the fastest player in Liverpool's history to score 40 goals, doing so in just 52 games - refused to accept the man-of-the-match award and insisted that it be given to team mate James Milner, in recognition of his 500th Premier League game.

FW Xherdan Shaqiri, 6 - Linked up well with Salah and Roberto Firmino and played some inviting through balls.

The switch up likely only came about due to Sadio Mané's foot injury but it's good to know that Klopp has an alternative for that left sided role if he needs one when previously it looked the one position in which he was truly short changed.

Third-placed Tottenham moved to within six points of top spot - and remained two points ahead of fourth-placed Chelsea - thanks to a 2-0 win at Leicester.

16 games, 13 wins, 3 draw, top of the league.

Next up for Jurgen Klopp's side is a crucial home game against Napoli for a place in the knockout stage of the Champions League.

If the Reds can apply maximum effort in both of these fixtures to take maximum points towards both their Champions League and Premier League tallies, that puts them in an incredible position roughly halfway through the season with nearly a full week to prepare for a trip to Wolverhampton. We couldn't pay for the training ground, a local school, so they were threatening to kick us out.
