Comments:

League position: 1st Liverpool had now won seven consecutive home games in the Premier League for first time since January 2014 and set a new club record of remaining unbeaten in 32 consecutive home games in the Premier League. They conceded three or more goals in a game in the Premier League for the first time since their 4-3 win against Manchester City at Anfield on 14 January 2018 (one year and five days ago). Roberto Firmino’s goal was the 1,000th scored by the Reds at Anfield in the Premier League. Mohamed Salah scored his 50th goal in the Premier League in his 72nd appearance in the competition. Only Andrew Cole (65), Alan Shearer (66) and Ruud van Nistelrooy (68) had reached the milestone in fewer games.

Comments:
