Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish paid tribute to his players after a 3-1 victory over Bolton lifted them top of the Premier League table.
It is early days in the season and Manchester United and Manchester City will have the opportunity to go back above the Reds on Sunday, but there has been plenty for the Anfield faithful to get excited about already this term.
Jordan Henderson, Martin Skrtel and Charlie Adam scored to seal the win and even a late consolation from Ivan Klasnic did not take the gloss off for Dalglish.
"It was a pleasure to watch," he told Sky Sports.
"We got the result because we worked hard, played together and played for each other.
"To lose a goal at the end maybe puts a dampener on it for 40 seconds or so but that also says a lot."
Duo hail striker
Luis Suarez may not have got on the scoresheet but he was once again an inspirational figure in attack, and Dalglish had nothing but praise for the Uruguayan.
The Scot said: "He's a fantastic player and a good character in and around the place."
Henderson and Stewart Downing were also united in their acclaim for Suarez after the final whistle.
"His movement is brilliant, he's always moving and always looking to get in behind," Henderson said of Suarez, who led Uruguay to the Copa America title this summer.
"He's a nightmare for defenders."
Downing was similarly enthusiastic, saying: "We all know he is a top player.
"He creates things and he scores goals too, he's had a long summer but it doesn't seem to be affecting him."
