It has been a truly special season so far for Liverpool.
The Reds currently top the Premier League by 16 points, but that does not paint the whole picture of their dominance in England’s top tier this term. So far, they have had the best season of any team in the history of Europe’s top five leagues, and they are still unbeaten. As it stands, they are just nine games without losing from matching Arsenal’s 49-game unbeaten run – the longest such record in the Premier League’s history.
Of the 23 matches they have played in the top flight so far, they have won an astonishing 22 of them. Journalist Dave O’Connell decided to detail that run in long-form, and it is has garnered plenty of reaction.

Lots of supporters love it, and have enjoyed basking in their team’s glory.
I love it. What a time to be alive 🙂

It’s actually ridiculous. Fergie used to say that you couldn’t win the league if you lost more than 6 games… I remember Arsenal’s invincibles hanging on and even cheating their way through tough games. This team, this manager are re-writing the rule book. 🔴

This look insane.

No wonder they are enjoying their fantastic form at the moment – this is a season that could potentially go unmatched in the years to come.
There is one slight blemish on that list, though, and that is the draw against Manchester United. Several fans have picked up on this and shared their frustration.

Even more reason why I hate United.

Madness is that one draw…😩

How we dropped points against Man Utd is beyond my imagination… almost perfect season 👑

The fact that their fiercest rivals were the one team they were unable to beat will be of annoyance to some supporters, but they are currently 33 points ahead of the Red Devils in the table – they are a team they do not need to worry about.
As it stands, they are just 15 games away from an unbeaten season. Can they do it? On this form, you wouldn’t bet against them.
Meanwhile, Liverpool eye this Premier League starlet.
