Liverpool have shattered records for fun during their record-breaking 2019/20 campaign. Jurgen Klopp’s team are looking to extend their 16-point lead at the Premier League summit when they travel to the London Stadium on Wednesday evening to face West Ham United.
The Reds have recorded 67 points out of a possible 69 so far this season – five more than any other top-flight side in history after 23 games.
Since March 10, Klopp’s world champions have registered 94 points from a possible 96. They have won every Anfield match since their 1-1 stalemate with Leicester City 12 months ago – that’s 20 consecutive home wins.
Liverpool are also currently on an unbeaten run of 40 consecutive Premier League matches – they have not lost in the league at Anfield since April 2017.
It’s quite remarkable for a team any team to go so long unbeaten in any league – let alone in the most competitive league in world football. Klopp has now equalled Jose Mourinho’s unbeaten run in the league 15 years ago when he inspired Chelsea to their first league title in 50 years back in 2005.
The German manager is just nine matches shy of the all-time record achieved by Arsene Wenger’s ‘invincibles’ in 2004.
More remarkably, however, is the number of Liverpool players who have never lost a Premier League match at Anfield since they joined the home of the European champions.

Astonishingly, Liverpool currently have 10 players who are yet to lose a home Premier League match since moving to Merseyside.
The list of players includes the likes of Alisson Becker, Virgil van Dijk, Andy Robertson, Fabinho, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Naby Keita, Xherdan Shaqiri, Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Adrian.
What RTK has to say
Liverpool have boasted some incredible statistics throughout this quite incredible 2019/20 campaign, however, surely this one takes the gold.
The Reds haven’t lost a match on Merseyside – including trips to Goodison Park – since April 2017 when Sam Allardyce inspired a 2-1 victory that also saw former Red Christian Benteke score a brace at the ground he used to call home.
Liverpool have won every home league match this season and have dropped just two points at Anfield since January 2019. Klopp’s team will be hoping to close in on the all-time unbeaten home record in the PL that was secured by Chelsea who achieved a run of 86 matches without defeat during a four-year period from February 2004 – October 2008.
The Premier League champions-elect are currently 34 matches shy of the Blues’ all-time record.
