Liverpool are currently just off the pace set by joint leaders Manchester United and Manchester City, after collecting seven points from their first three league games.
Kenny Dalglish's men didn't have the best of opening games when they were held to a 1-1 draw by Sunderland, but have since pressed on with wins over Arsenal and Bolton.
And speaking to Liverpoolfc.tv, Clarke revealed there was plenty to be happy about with Liverpool's recent performances.
"We're all reasonably satisfied with the start," Clarke said. "Obviously we're two points missing from the perfect start, but if you analyse the performances and how we've done, everybody should be quite happy.
"Each game individually has had pleasing aspects.
"It was important to go into the international break on the back of a good performance and win.
"We got that against Bolton, so that's probably been the most satisfying game so far."
Liverpool resume their domestic campaign this weekend away to a Stoke side known for their physicality, and Clarke is hoping most of the players return from international duty unscathed.
"They'll come back Wednesday, most will have played on the Tuesday night and be a little bit tired, so on Thursday and Friday we'll start to nail down a few details for the weekend.
"But we should go into the game in a good moment. We finished the first part of the season on a high, we'll go through the internationals with hopefully no injuries and then we have to get ready for a couple of difficult away games."
Following this weekend's visit to Stoke, Liverpool's next league match will see them travel to White Hart Lane to take on Tottenham.
