Comments:

League position: 1st This was manager Jürgen Klopp’s 200th game in charge of Liverpool in all competitions (won 112). Sadio Mané had now 21 goals in a season in England for the first time (all competitions). Mohamed Salah had now scored 41 goals in his 50 appearances for the Reds at Anfield in all competitions. Liverpool were now unbeaten in their last 38 home games in the Premier League. Only Chelsea (86 games from 2004 to 2008) had a longer such run. With four games still to play, this was the Reds' 26th win in this Premier League season to equal their club record in the competition set in 2013-14. Their club record in the top division is 30 wins in League Division One in 1978-79 when they played 42 games.
