Liverpool’s 17-game win streak came to an end against Manchester United at Old Trafford.
At first Reds fans may be disappointed after missing out on a record equaling 18th win yesterday.
The unbeaten run continues with just one loss all year Liverpool fans have never had it so good.
Now is the time to celebrate Liverpool’s 17-game win streak by recapping some of the Red’s best performances during that long run.
Tottenham Hotspur – 31 March 2019
Liverpool’s 2 – 1 win over Spurs at Anfield is the closest we came to dropping points during this long winning run. Roberto Firmino gave us an early lead. Things got tough after 70 minutes Lucas Moura equalised. Liverpool needed some luck to get over the line as Toby Alderweireld inadvertently put the ball in his own net deep into stoppage time for the most dramatic of finishes at Anfield.
Newcastle United – 4 May 2019
Rafa Benitez’s Newcastle United looked determined to end Liverpool’s title hopes at St James’s Park. Liverpool had the chance to go top with just one game remaining against a side with nothing to play for. There are no easy games in the Premier League, and we saw that in this match. Newcastle twice battled back after Liverpool scored to level the scores at 2-2. Divock Origi’s late header clinched the 2-3 victory for Liverpool who had the chance to win the title on the final day of the season.
Arsenal – 24 August 2019
Liverpool’s best performance of this season and in my opinion the entire 17-game winning run. The Reds like they have done for so long, and looked electric against Arsenal at Anfield. It was a 3-1 score line that flattered the Gunners who were lucky not to have shipped more goals earlier this season. Joel Matip scored before Mo Salah added two goals to kill the game off. Liverpool’s first real test of the season and Jurgen Klopp’s men passed with flying colours.
