The scars of “Beachballgate” live on in the memory.
The sight of Pepe Reina moving one way to catch the red beach ball and watching the football head into the goal in the other direction is a modern day horror story.
You can laugh about it now but it is still fresh in the mind whenever Liverpool play Sunderland.
Liverpool were pretty good on Tuesday against Leicester. As good as they could be. Leicester were excellent and but for a couple of fantastic saves from Mignolet it could have been worse.
Everything went high, wide and handsome for the Reds as is the norm on these occasions but take nothing away from an absolutely fantastic goal from Vardy. You won't see many of those in your lifetime.
The Reds hustled and bustled and misplaced their passes and with Firminho having a bit of an off day it was clear they were going to find it difficult to score. With Ings, Origi and Sturridge all on the treatment table attacking options are in short supply.
Benteke looks a shadow of the player he could and should be.
And So To Sunderland.
It's always been two steps forward one step back for Liverpool under Klopp and collectively the bar is slowly being raised. Liverpool should take another step forward against Premier League struggler's Sunderland and is it possible we might see the return of the lesser spotted Sturridge?
It would be a timely return with so many cup fixtures on the horizon and a striker of his ability is all that this Liverpool team needs to function properly.
Combined with the return of Coutinho, Skrtel, Lovren and all of a sudden Liverpool look a team full of menace.
The in play Twitter feed is completely bonkers with Liverpool fans happy to slate everyone in the team when they lose and go totally overboard when they win. It's good we have Klopp in charge otherwise the team would be bought and sold every week.
Liverpool have won their last three home matches against bottom of the table teams and even I can't find a case for betting on the opposition in this situation.
