After the win against Arsenal on Saturday evening, the Reds have now won 12 Premier League matches on the spin since a 0-0 draw at Goodison Park back at the very start of March.
Never before has a Reds side won 13 league games in a row, which will be the aim next weekend at Turf Moor when Jurgen Klopp and his players head to Burnley for a tough match against Sean Dyche’s team.
The Reds last won 12 in a row between April and October 1990, though they went on to finish behind champions Arsenal in the league that year.

Reaching such heights should not be underestimated, especially in a league like the Premier League where it is so easy to drop points.
It requires elite concentration levels and the Reds have shown themselves to be capable of that despite potential distractions like a Champions League semi-final and final to contend with, and the UEFA Super Cup final, with a game at Southampton just 72 hours later.
After Burnley, there is the international break before the Reds face Newcastle United, Chelsea and Sheffield United in September.
