Liverpool may have already been crowned Premier League champions but the statistics are proving that they are far more than just that.
Jurgen Klopp’s champions of England has redefined the meanings of consistency and have entered uncharted territory in their pursuit of the record books.
Liverpool have dropped just seven points from a possible 93 this season and are closing in the record points haul of 100 set by Manchester City two years ago.
If that wasn’t enough, Klopp and his players have suffered just two PL defeats in their previous 80 matches and have equalled the total of most consecutive wins in a season (18).
However, following an incredible statistic released by Sky Sports, Liverpool’s brilliance has been made to look even more ridiculous than thought possible.
The Reds are still unbeaten at their fortress Anfield since April 2017 and are on a run of 56 league matches at home without defeat.
If this wasn’t staggering enough the next best total in the division has been recorded by local rivals Everton who yesterday made it eight home matches unbeaten following their 2-1 victory over Leicester.
Absolutely incredible stat by @SkySportsPL.
Longest unbeaten runs at home currently in the Premier League:
Man City (7)

Even Manchester City are trailing Liverpool’s tally by a gargantuan 49 matches.
The Premier League record is still held by Chelsea who across four years were able to remain unbeaten in 86 matches from 2004-2008 before they were eventually beaten by Liverpool – courtesy of a Xabi Alonso winner.
Once again, Anfield has been established into an impregnable fortress. It’s difficult to believe that not too long ago in 2012, Liverpool were humbled in their home ground by the likes of Wigan Athletic, West Brom and Fulham.
The work Klopp has done for this team cannot be overstated.
Although they are only numbers, the representation that comes with these statistics cannot be underestimated.
With ludicrous numbers such as Liverpool’s, teams need only take a glance at their ruthless relentlessness and fear they are beaten already.
Klopp has completely revolutionised the club’s DNA and statistics such as these in their own right should be celebrated. The German’s famous phrase of turning the club ‘from doubters to believers’ was never just a dream. It’s now a glistening reality.
