Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers admits their title credentials will be decided in the coming weeks.
This seasonâ€™s surprise front-runners facing a daunting programme including matches against Arsenal, Spurs, Manchester City, Chelsea and Everton, and starting with Saturday lunchtime's away game at Newcastle.
â€śWe have a really tough schedule coming up and we are not getting carried away â€“ we know when you have the big squads, you have an advantage,â€ť explained Rodgers.
â€śBut these are the big games and the top players step up to them. For us, weâ€™re happy and excited about what we can achieve. In a lot of those games last year, we played really well, but didnâ€™t get always get the results.
â€śThe idea this year is to look to move up a notch and see if we can get the wins this time, as we did last month in the game against Manchester United.â€ť
