But Evra told Sky Sports: "We need to calm down, it's only 9 games. I will call them a great team when they win three league titles in a row.
"If they don't win this year, I won't call them an amazing team – it's all about consistency and they win the league year after year – that's when we call them the great Liverpool team.
"Many teams before that have done that and I will call them the best Liverpool team when they win three leagues in a row."
The Swede claimed: "It's a great, great club and to say they're the best team compared to other histories and team, I don't think that's fair. I agree with Patrice though."
