Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers claims there is a new positive feeling in his squad this season.
The Reds started this campaign with a 1-0 win over Stoke - a stark contrast to last season's 3-0 defeat at the hands of West Bromwich Albion.
He told the club's website: "I remember last year and people saying to me 'should we be losing 3-0 to West Brom?' They were absolutely right.
"But we've got better and better as we've gone on. It's a big job here.
"But I just got the feeling in the dressing room beforehand, when the players were getting together, some of our staff were saying that it just feels different this year.
"There's a camaraderie and a togetherness there. Long may it continue.
"We haven't won the World Cup, it's a game of football. But the lads are happy, they've done their job. They knew this was a big three points."
