Liverpool have enjoyed a near-perfect start to the season under Jurgen Klopp, already in a commanding position to win the Premier League.
Can Klopp consider himself on the same level as Shankly & Paisley?
The Reds have amassed 49 points from their opening 17 games, only dropping points in a 1-1 draw away at Manchester United back in October.
That form has seen them open a 10-point gap at the top of the league over Leicester, with defending champions Manchester City a further four points back.
Klopp also guided his side to victory in their Champions League group as they aim to become the first English side to defend their European crown.
Having already played four times in December, Liverpool face at least four more games before the turn of the year as a result of their participation in the Club World Cup.
As the squad jetted off to Qatar, the club’s Twitter account posted a picture of the manager, sporting a Liverpool phone case.
That went down well with the fans, here’s how some of them reacted:
