Liverpool will have surprised many during the first half of the 2013/14 season.
Not many fans, pundits or experts would have tipped Brendan Rodgers' men to be top of the table on Christmas Day, eclipsing the likes of Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea and big-spending Manchester City.
The Reds have been in scintillating form of late and in Luis Suarez boast arguably the most in-form player in world football.
Despite their rise to the summit of the Barclays Premier League table, Rodgers, the players and the majority of fans are refusing to get carried away.
In fact, most would probably still bite your hand off if offered a fourth-place finish.
The Reds have, however, been as impressive as any of their nearest rivals.
Anfield has witnessed an attacking style of football rarely seen since the late '80s and the days of Beardsley, Barnes and Aldridge.
It is this writer's opinion that this Liverpool side does have what it takes to maintain a title challenge in the new year, but not without obvious hard work, dedication and a few changes from what fans have witnessed during the first half of the season.
This article will analyse what the Reds must do and also do differently if they are to be taken seriously in their bid to end their painful 24-year wait for league title number 19.
