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.
"We have shown in all three of our games at some stage the qualities we want.
"The quality of our football has been good and that commitment and desire to win games and our resilience has been there.
"We haven't always been at our best throughout the 90 minutes of games this season but we certainly have a resilience and a way to win games other than just playing football.
"In this league, it is so tough, you need that."
That resilience will be tested on Monday against Rodgers' former club Swansea - especially as Liverpool have won only twice in the league in south Wales - in April 1958 and September 1982.
While it is more than a year now since the Northern Irishman left the Liberty Stadium for Anfield he still retains fond memories but he knows the club has moved on apace under new boss Michael Laudrup.
"When I went there in the first year our record signing was only £500,000 for Scott Sinclair," he said.
"We got into the Premier League and spent £7million net and our highest signing was £3.5million and that seemed a lot at that time.
"You look at it this summer and they've spent £12million on Wilfried Bony and I'm sure will again be vying for a top-10 spot again.
"They have got a tough week ahead of them - a game on Monday against ourselves, Valencia in the Europa League and then a game on Sunday, but that's why they have built their squad.
"We've jumped three barriers already this season that were tough games but how we've done in those games bears no resemblance to the game on Monday.
"It will be a tough game but we've got belief and confidence. It's important to maintain that."
While Liverpool have strengthened their squad in important areas over the summer Rodgers admits there is still work to do.
"There are areas where we still need to make improvements," he added.
"Tottenham have spent over £100million to try to improve the squad, to try to get in the top four.
"If they're spending that money to try to get in there then we've obviously got a lot of improvements to make as well.
"You can only do so much in one or two windows. As each window goes on, we're getting stronger and stronger.
"It will probably take another few windows to get that real quality and depth into the group.
"Thus far I'm pleased with how the group is progressing - we just need to keep our focus and keep working well."
