The Reds are in the habit of breaking records, of making history. This Saturday they took on Spurs at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, their win saw them become the first team in the history of Europe’s top five leagues to win 20 of their opening 21 games, they also notched a win at yet another Premier League ground. Furthermore, the win meant that Liverpool have won four successive London games for the first time since October 1989 – their last title winning campaign.
The Reds win was a routine one. We went 1-0 up after 37 minutes of domination when Roberto Firmino’s clever touch was followed by a lethal finish.
Thereafter it was a case of strangulation. Jürgen Klopp’s side kept the ball for a majority of the game, rarely letting Spurs out – they snuffed out attacks before they ever got going.
However, the last 20 minutes were a touch more shaky. The lads appeared to get bored, they lost their concentration and began to dawdle in possession.
The game was the fourth consecutive Liverpool win in London, a record stretching back to May 2018 when they beat Fulham in dramatic fashion.
This is the first time the Reds have achieved this feat since October 1989, Liverpool went on to win the league that season – the last time they were crowned champions.
The most important thing about this feat is that it speaks volumes about the lads’ character. Their away form has improved dramatically in the last couple of seasons, no longer do we wilt under pressure or fail to get over the line.
This is just one record in a string of successes but it is perhaps the most indicative of what this side has become, they go to the big grounds and they win with regularity. Mentality monsters.
