Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has warned the club's rivals the best is still to come from the Merseyside giants.
The Reds are third in the Premier League, five points behind leaders Arsenal following defeat at the Emirates Stadium at the weekend.
But defeat to the league leaders represented just Liverpool's second domestic loss of the season and the club have made a telling improvement during the first 10 games of the campaign, with Daniel Sturridge and Suarez proving vital.
Suarez has recaptured his very best form since returning from a 10-match ban for biting Chelsea's Branislav Ivanovic, scoring six goals for the club this season including a hat-trick against West Bromwich Albion.
Philippe Coutinho's return from injury means Brendan Rodgers is able to select the Brazilian from the start alongside Suarez and Sturridge and as a result, the club's leading marksman is confident further improvement is possible.
"We're doing well right now but we need to carry on that form into the Christmas period," Suarez told Match.
"I think our best is yet to come, which hopefully means well for the end of the season and our chances of making next season's Champions League. That's one of our aims.
"It's good to be playing well and contributing with goals but the most important thing is getting three points every week. I wouldn't be scoring without the help of my team-mates, so thanks to them."
Such has been Suarez's impressive form that the Uruguay international's constant request for a move away from Liverpoolin the summer has been almost forgotten.
Liverpool rejected two bids from Arsenal in the summer as the club hierarchy attempted to keep hold of Suarez despite a myriad of controversies having overshadowed his spell in English football
Substantial bans for racially abusing Patrice Evra and biting Ivanovic last April have seriously damaged his reputation in the Premier League, yet he is among the most sought-after players in Europe, as Real Madrid continue to be linked with an interest.
