Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers admits his side will have to be vigilant after their 100 per cent start to the season.
Topping the table heading into the international break - albeit after only three matches - and beating champions Manchester United in the process will have made the Reds more of a target.
While the Anfield side were regarded - and realistically still are - as top-four contenders, their best start to a Premier League season will have made rivals sit up and take notice.
That is not a concern for Rodgers but he is keen for his side not to take their eye off the ball on the resumption of the campaign at Swansea on Monday.
"We're not worried. Our perception is what we think about ourselves," he said.
"Football is very much about opinion. All we try to do here is work well, work honestly and work hard.
"We had a difficult window when we came in (last summer) and I think that was well documented.
"From that we have really come together. We showed in January we'd done the preparation to get players in and I think our form and everything about the club since then has been on the up.
"We have to be vigilant going forward. It has been a good start but we can be better.
"We just need to keep getting results. We need to keep the feelgood factor going and you do that by winning games.
