A man who knows more than a thing or two about finding the back of the net believes either Daniel Sturridge or Luis Suarez could complete the season as top scorer in the Barclays Premier League.
The former has notched eight goals in all competitions so far in 2013-14, while his Uruguayan colleague has registered three times in as many matches since returning from suspension.
Each striker has quite some way to go to match the achievements of Ian Rush, however - the Welshman departed Anfield as the club's record goalscorer of all time with a haul of 346 across his two spells.
The 51-year-old has nevertheless been hugely impressed by the partnership between the Reds' No.7 and No.15, predicting that one or the other could claim the Golden Boot at the end of the campaign.
"They have got a chance," he told Liverpoolfc.com.
"Last year, the two best players in the league were Suarez and Bale. Suarez surprised me with how many he did score; I knew he could make goals, but he had an incredible season.
"I thought he was superb and he seems to have taken it on again. He has come back from his suspension and started scoring goals again.
"Sturridge had a great start to the season, scored in the first three or four games, and they are full of confidence now. It wouldn't surprise me.
"I think Sturridge may get a few more goals because of the way Suarez plays; he'll help Sturridge a bit more with his experience.
"They are both great players, world-class players and world-class players can play with anyone. I like the way Suarez does it - he looks at Sturridge and plays off him and around him.
"You can see them trying to bring each other into the game now, the partnership is working really well and they are full of confidence. They have both got so much ability.
"I just like the way they play off each other. When they haven't got the ball, Suarez looks to where Sturridge is and plays off him."
In addition to ranking higher than any other Liverpool striker in the Reds' record books, Rush was one half of arguably the finest partnership the club's supporters have ever witnessed.
But how do the modern day Sturridge and Suarez compare to the unstoppable exploits of Kenny Dalglish and Rush during the 1980s?
"It's a natural instinct, where you go and play off each other," the Welshman said.
"Kenny and I had a great understanding. I was quick, Kenny knew where to put the ball; he didn't even look, Kenny just put the ball there and I was going before Kenny was getting hold of the ball.
"The understanding on the pitch happens and you can see that with Sturridge and Suarez now.
"They will get better. This one does seem to just click, but you work on it in training. You don't even know you're doing it, but you do it and you see each other.
"I used to look at the way Kenny played and take it from there. I don't think the manager says: 'You two must work together'.
"What it is, you look at each other's game on the training pitch and you pick things up from there. That's the football brain, and that's what Suarez and Sturridge are doing."
