Comments:

League position: 1st Naby Keita's opening goal was timed at 15 seconds. It became Liverpool's quickest-ever goal in the Premier League. The quickest goal in the club's history is thought to have been scored by Paul Walsh against West Ham United on 27 August 1984 in League Division One after 14 seconds. [c/o LFChistory] The Reds had now won ten consecutive games in all competitions for the first time since May 2006 (11 games). They were now also unbeaten in their last 19 games in all competitions for the first time since March 1996 (20 games). With two games still to play, they had now created a new club record of taking 91 points in a Premier League season. The most points that a team had accrued in a completed Premier League season without winning the title was 89 by Manchester United in 2011-12. They had now also taken 50 points in home games in a Premier League season for the first time. Sadio Mané had now scored 11 goals in his last nine Premier League appearances at Anfield. This was Mohamed Salah’s 100th appearance for Liverpool. He scored his 69th goal to break the club record for the most goals in the first 100 games (previously 68 by Sam Raybould and Roger Hunt). The Reds had now won 50 games at Anfield in the Premier League by a margin of four or more goals.
