Jurgen Klopp’s champions-elect have now claimed 102 points from a possible 104 with the Reds conceding just two points since March. Their 22-point lead at the top of the league table is  the biggest lead any league-leader has ever had at the end of a day in English top-flight history

The runaway league leaders also made it 16 consecutive league victories with Klopp’s team now just seven wins away from claiming their first domestic title since 1990.

One player in particular who epitomises Liverpool’s relentless run of form is Mohamed Salah. The Reds’ Egyptian king capped off another stunning individual performance with a brace against the Saints. He is now the clubs top-scorer with 18 goals in all competitions this season.

The former Chelsea man remarkably is on a quite-ridiculous run of 33-consecutive league victories. Salah was absent the last time Liverpool dropped points in the top-flight – a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford back in October.

It’s the longest winning-run by any individual player in PL history. Notably, Liverpool’s 24th victory of the season extended their unbeaten run in the league to 42 matches – just seven games shy of the all-time PL record achieved by Arsenal in 2004.

Salah, 27, has also eclipsed former Reds hero Luis Suarez in terms of league goals. The former Roma star now has 70 PL goals following his Anfield brace against the Saints.

The Egypt international is currently embarking on his third season for Liverpool – he has clocked up 137 appearances since his £34m [BBC Sport] move from Serie A. Salah has 89 goals and 38 assists during that time.
