Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson has warned his players not to take their return to form for granted.
The Reds secured a third successive Premier League win, and their fourth in all competitions, on Sunday as they saw off Chelsea 2-0 at Anfield.
After all the doom and gloom which accompanied a torrid start to the season, and the repercussions of a distracting takeover saga, it appears as though Liverpool are back on track.
They are up to ninth in the table and have a favourable-looking fixture list stretching out in front of them.
Liverpool go to Wigan on Wednesday and Stoke on Saturday before taking on West Ham, Tottenham, Aston Villa, Newcastle, Fulham, Blackpool, Wolves, Bolton and Blackburn before the second of this season's Merseyside derbies on 16th January.
Hodgson knows a good run through those games would catapult the Reds right back into the top-four mix, but he is also well aware that allowing complacency to set in following a couple of decent performances could prove costly in the long run.
"We have to be very careful. We have to get our feet back on the ground very quickly after the Chelsea victory," he said.
"There has been a lot of bad things written, false accusations and ludicrous stories being banded around.
"We have got through that by keeping our feet on the ground and trying to ignore it as best as possible and making sure it does not affect our work.
"We now have to make sure any praise does not affect our work. We have to realise we are capable of performances like the one against Chelsea but we are also capable of performances like the one against Blackpool when we were beaten 2-1.
"We have to try to get rid of one of those performances and keep the other.
"But we have four good wins behind us and let's hope we can get at least one win in the next two games as our form away from home has not been good traditionally this year."
Hodgson is hoping there is still plenty more to come from Liverpool over the coming weeks, with key men returning from injury and summer signings starting to find their feet.
"A lot of our players need time. Raul Meireles (an £11.5million summer signing) needs time; he is a good footballer but he is not playing anywhere near what he is really capable," the 63-year-old said following the win over Chelsea.
"Maxi Rodriguez had a very good game and Dirk Kuyt came in, we've missed him, and if you are going to single out someone Martin Kelly deserves a lot of praise.
"It was a tough game for him to come into because the left side of Chelsea's attack is a very dangerous one and you have to make some very nuance decisions there and I think he did pretty well.
