Klopp’s men came so close to ending their long drought without a top-flight trophy last season, but this year they are head and shoulders above the rest of England – 16 points ahead, to be exact, with a game in hand ahead of their closest rival.
A 16-point lead at any stage of the season is absolutely remarkable. But in the second week of January? That is utterly mind-blowing.
The most impressive feat of the decade was achieved by the Reds on Saturday, as their victory over Spurs meant that Klopp’s troop have won 61 points in the Premier League in 2019-20 – the most any side has ever registered after 21 games in a single season across Europe’s big five leagues.
The best start in the history of the world.20 wins and one draw, away at Manchester United. That result must keep Klopp awake at night for a long time.
With any unbeaten start to a season, talk of an ‘invincible’ team begins to bounce around. Well, with 17 games left to play, Liverpool would only need another six victories to match the number of wins Arsenal accrued in their unrivaled 2003/04 undefeated campaign.
They next face their old rivals Manchester United, and another chance to add to their impressive run.
