Any thoughts of the 5-0 masterclass that Liverpool produced on their last visit to Tottenham Hotspur must be banished when they return to White Hart Lane today, insists midfielder Joe Allen.
In December 2013, Brendan Rodgers' team dismantled the Londoners away from home, thoroughly controlling the entire 90 minutes and clinically converting a quintet of unanswered strikes.
The result and performance will live long in the memory of all connected to the club, but however confidence-boosting and inspiring that day was, Allen has called for no complacency this time around.
He believes that the Reds require each and every one of the elements that created last season's rout to claim victory over a side that has kicked off the new campaign with maximum points to date.
"It was a fantastic team performance," the Welshman reflected in conversation with Liverpoolfc.com at Melwood.
"We were travelling down there without Stevie and Studge. We all showed, as a team, that we were capable of putting in a fantastic performance.
"To blow them away 5-0 on their own patch, I think it was one of the moments that really kicked our season on and gave us the belief to go on the sort of run we ended up with.
"It was certainly one of the stand-out games, no doubt about that. That's why we're all excited for Sunday's game.
"Obviously it will be a difficult task to produce the same result and performance, but that's our aim. That performance had a bit of everything so let's hope it can be more of the same.
"We know if we bring our 'A' game, work hard and give everything, that we've got enough quality to overcome a good Spurs team.
"We have to make sure there is no complacency - they have started the season really well - and that last year's result isn't a hindrance and we don't see it as something we can recreate easily.
"We have to make sure that we do everything we did in that game once again."
Allen started the season opener at home to Southampton as a substitute but was introduced in the second half with considerable impact as a hard-fought 2-1 win was secured.
His contribution earned a place in the line-up for Monday's defeat by Manchester City, another example of the meritocracy overseen by Rodgers and appreciated by the players.
"It's a massive boost," the No.24 explained. "You find that at this club you are rewarded for your efforts. Everyone is in the team solely on merit, which is great to have.
"I was obviously disappointed that in getting the start, I wasn't able to be part of a winning performance. That's always what you aim for. But given the chance again, hopefully I can put that straight.
"The competition in the squad means that, from one game to the next, everyone has got to do everything they can to get themselves in the team. It's the same for me.
"It's up to everyone to work hard in training. It's difficult to pick what team we'll play on Sunday, which is a sign that we have a strong squad. Fingers crossed I'll be involved."
