Liverpool legend Ian Rush believes Jurgen Klopp has given the club the winning formula that would bring the Premier League title to Anfield.
The Reds ran away 2-0 winners at Cardiff to return to the summit of the Premier League and extended their winning run to six games on the trot.
History was equally made as they racked up the highest number of points (88) by any Liverpool side in EPL history.

Fellow title rivals Man City will play their game in hand on Wednesday at Old Trafford in what would be a keenly contested Manchester derby. A win will see them topple Klopp’s men.
However, former European Footballer of the Year Rush can see similarities between the current squad and the legendary Liverpool teams that he was part of.
“The title race will go down to the wire, there is no doubt about that,” Rush told Sky Sports News.
“There are just a few games to go and as long as they keep winning they are one step closer, but I think they are starting to believe now that it can be done.
“People are saying all the fans are getting excited, but why not? Why shouldn’t they be excited? If they don’t get excited now, they’ll never get excited!
“The most important thing is that the players – with the help of the coaching staff and the manager – keep their feet on the ground.
This picture tells you the impact Salah has on Liverpool. In a season where he's been criticised and not been nominated for POTY after being the joint highest scorer, his impact in goals scored is unbelievable.

“I think the team is a bit more resistant now and you can see that in the way they’ve come back from a goal down to win a game quite a few times this season
“They’ve got a winning formula and there is no need to change anything.”
Up next for the Reds is a home game against Huddersfield on Friday night before a trip to Nou Camp.
