Liverpool Unimaginable Records:

He is the one, who led Dortmund towards the winning race of Bundesliga and the same thing he has been trying the day he landed at Anfield.

Without heavy signing, he made players within Liverpool’s youth team and signed some major ones which helped them to lift the major trophies for Liverpool

 In the 2019-20 season of the premier league, Liverpool managed to break their own 21 long successive home run victories (24). Klopp’s side started their season as the best recorded by top league teams.

With 26 wins and a draw from their first 27 games, that’s what made them monsters. Liverpool played 38 matches, won 32 which was the best performance by any other top-flight teams in Premier League.

Apart from winning, they have secured 104 points which were way more than the usual and none of the teams have done it before.

Last season Liverpool was leading the points table with 26 points, which was unreachable for any team, and that led them to lift their 18th Premier League Title.

Since Sadio Mane came in the Liverpool squad they have never been beaten in their home in Premier League season.

Even in the current season, they were close to beat the longest home run unbeaten streak of Chelsea 86 games, but Burnley shattered their dream when they defeated them 1-0.

Although it’s unimaginable to surpass Jose’s long-run unbeaten wins for any club.

Liverpool’s Downfall with Wounds:

But this season the whole picture is different, they are not in the top 3, not even at the 5th position, they are standing at 6th position after their defeat against Everton.

What exactly happened this year? Liverpool was dominating against all odds, but some major injuries demolished their second consecutive Premier League title dream.

If injuries didn’t happen at that time, they would have managed to give the best fight to each team even to the invisible Manchester City who is unbeatable currently.
