Liverpool continued an impressive start to the season by beating visitors Newcastle United 3-1 at Anfield.

The Reds have now secured wins in all five of their opening Premier League games.

In a good day all round Manchester City suffered a 3-2 defeat to Norwich City at Carrow Road. This loss opened a five-point gap between Liverpool and their nearest rivals.

A winning run stretching back to March has allowed Jurgen Klopp’s men to make history. His team have recorded 14 consecutive Premier League victories for Liverpool, a first for the club.

Only the fourth team to achieve this feat, Liverpool have already equaled Arsenals efforts in 2002.

A win in the next league game will move the red men to 15 wins, level with Manchester City’s title winning run last season.

 

The overall record is also held by Manchester City who notched up 18 consecutive wins to set it back in 2017. A record that is under serious threat with the Reds now within touching distance.

If Liverpool can continue this scintillating start to the season by winning the next five games, they will create Premier League history; this group of players will go down as one of the all-time great teams of the Premier League era.

Not only will history be made but a statement of intent will be sent to our rivals.

Liverpool will have 10 wins, 30 points and would be well on the way to a first league title since 1990.
