There's a popular and catchy ditty on the Kop that describes Liverpool as watching poetry in motion.
And that's undoubtedly been the case this season as their devastating strike force of Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge have torn Premier League defences apart on a weekly basis.
Their combined 47 goals in 30 matches - 28 for Suarez and 19 for Sturridge - could yet make Liverpool once again the best team in the land, fulfilling the boast in that same song.
While Brendan Rodgers and the team as a whole concentrate on overhauling the four-point gap to Barclays Premier League leaders Chelsea, the lethal 'SAS' partnership also have their sights set on breaking a long-standing scoring record.
After Suarez notched a hat-trick and Sturridge also scored in their thrilling 6-3 win at Cardiff City on Saturday, the pair reached 47 league goals between them for the season.
They are, therefore, just eight goals behind the Premier League best set by Newcastle's Peter Beardsley and Andrew Cole during the 1993-94 campaign.
In that season, Cole scored 34 and Beardsley 21 as Newcastle finished third in the table, but their impressive haul - achieved when there were 42 games in a Premier League season - could be surpassed.
The more immediate target will be to eclipse the 49 goals scored by the original 'SAS' duo of Alan Shearer and Chris Sutton when Blackburn won the title in 1994-1995.
Suarez and Sturridge will fancy their chances of overtaking that total in midweek when Liverpool welcome Sunderland to Anfield.
The Uruguayan has scored seven goals against Sunderland over the course of his career, while England forward Sturridge has two.
