“Are they the best team that we’ve seen in the Premier League? I think they just need to continue this level for another season or two – get their hands on the trophy for starters.
“There’s no question that they can go unbeaten.
“It will be very interesting to see how Jurgen Klopp juggles his squad, depending on what competitions there are and things like that.
“He might even have won the league so early that he can rest players for other competitions, who knows?
“But this is a seriously good team. Over the season, they have been nothing short of brilliant.”
Liverpool underlined their domestic dominance on Sunday when edging out Wolves at Anfield.
